Torque Analysis & Error Proofing in Manufacturing

Today’s manufacturers understand the importance of proper torque specifications in their assembly processes as it has a direct correlation to reduced rework, quality assurance, and overall reliability of their products.  Failures that result from incorrect tightenings can be catastrophic, from financial losses to safety issues and product liabilities.  Thanks to a combination of modern technological developments, manufacturers have a plethora of options when it comes to choosing the right torque verification solution for their application.

Recently, C.H. Reed worked with a local manufacturer to develop a solution that helps them verify that every single fastener in their assembly process is tightened to the correct torque, at the correct time, and in the correct order.  The video below illustrates Sturtevant Richmont’s technological advances in torque verification along with their data collection capabilities that in the end, helped this customer increase their production efficiencies, product quality, and reliability.
