Torque drivers are a necessary tool in every production environment to quickly tighten fasteners and to ensure the correct torque spec is achieved.
Improve your fastening operations by using self positioning, multi driver tool systems. We can design a custom system that locates the tooling to your product, aligns multiple nut runners, and fastens multiple torque points simultaneously. These systems can be controlled via air logic, or via PLC controls. DC torque tools or pneumatic torque tools can be integrated into these systems.
- Reduce labour costs (one operator running multiple tools)
- Improve ergonomics (operator controls can be kept at an ergonomic height while the tool is above the shoulders or below the waist)
- Improved cycle time (multiple fasteners installed simultaneously)
- Improved repeatability (tooling aligns to the part or fixture, increasing position repeatability)
This torque tool approaches the rear of a vehicle body and aligns itself to the vehicle. The 4 DC torque spindles are inserted through the rear window opening and expand to reach the bolts. All 4 bolts are torqued simultaneously before retracting the tooling.
Take your production quality one step further:
PLC controls can integrate many poke yokes such as target torque, fastener detection, misalignment detection, reverse function lockout, and vision inspection.
Using DC torque tools with torque controllers enables the ability to create a torque strategy. A torque strategy monitors rundown angles and final angles to ensure a perfect torque is achieved each time. For example, if the rundown angle does not reach its target before the set torque is reached, this could be an indicator of a damaged bolt.
