Fastening Technology to Validate Part Quality on the Production Line

Featured Image

Maintaining part-to-part repeatability in manual screwdriving operations may require secondary validation to enforce zero failure rates. Some applications including Electric Vehicles (EVs), automotive frames, and safety equipment have high product liability risks, requiring precise and consistent quality control practices that increase labor dependency and reduce production capacity.

Automating these validations during the screwdriving operation allows manufacturers to error-proof the production line. Sensors gather the exact process data from each driving operation and can supply this information to the Manufacturing Execution System (MES). This creates an audit trail to demonstrate compliance with the customer’s technical specifications and reduces product liability risks.

WEBER’s process controllers provide precise monitoring and control of each screwdriving operation. The controller can integrate with PLCs, initiating the driving operation upon receiving the start signal. Measuring the torque, angle, and depth of the driving operation is possible using the analog depth sensor and transducer in the spindle. The C30S process controller also controls the feeding system, the stroke movement of the spindle, and can communicate with other peripheral devices.
