Advanced production tooling

Advanced production tooling is necessary in your production for several reasons:

Productivity

The right solution enables the production process to be carried out in the quickest and most efficient way. In turn, this boosts your productivity. The use of specialised tools allows workers to complete tasks with greater accuracy and speed. Thus reducing the time required spent on tightening threaded fasteners. The fine tuning of assembly tightening strategies within DC tools can maximise run down speed and reduce fastening time per fixing.

Quality

The use of the correct production tooling ensures that each product is manufactured consistently to the same specifications. This is particularly important in industries where products must meet strict quality standards or regulatory requirements. With error proofed production and operator guidance, faults can be eliminated. Then, the gathering of torque and process data can provide both full traceability of each tightening. This then produces a ‘birth certificate’ of the process and it various components that were undertaken.

Cost-effectiveness

By using specialised tools, manufacturers can reduce the cost of the manual labour element. It can also keep uptime levels to their maximum and in many cases can offer reduced operating costs and energy consumption savings. This can result in significant cost savings for the factory. Supported by reliability centred maintenance contracts tools can be kept to perform to their optimum. This then reduces expensive down time and repair costs.

Safety

Production tooling can be designed to minimise the risk of accidents and injuries in the workplace. For example, tools fitted with correct reaction devices can help prevent workers from injury and fatigue related issues. Tools can be insulated to protect from electrocution (in EV / Battery assembly). Removing air lines and cables by offering battery operated solutions can reduce trip hazards. This makes for a cleaner working environment. Correctly specified sockets and covers can protect the operator from trapped / damage fingers associated with operating tasks whilst wearing work gloves on. This is a common demand and risk in many processes / plants.

Environment

Battery technology in assembly tools and advanced energy efficient DC solutions reduce energy costs associated with tooling vs pneumatic and less advanced solutions within the market place. Sourcing equipment from companies committed to developing the most energy efficient products, who operate sustainability and focus on their carbon footprint and recycling procedures can limit the impact of tooling on the environment. Operator guidance solutions can help to reduce waste in your process and support right first time methodology, which in turn reduces your waste and subsequent carbon footprint.♻️

 

Overall, production tooling is an essential component of modern manufacturing processes, enabling factories to produce high-quality products quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
