Eliminating Defective Fasteners With Higher-Resolution, 3D Inspection Equipment
As manufacturers look to lightweight materials for better fuel economy, associated fastening problems necessitate zero defects through 100% inspection.
From automotive, trucking and heavy equipment to aerospace, agriculture and high-volume appliance/electronics, manufacturers looking to reduce weight (or for cost savings) have turned to lightweight materials like aluminum, plastics, zinc and magnesium. The associated fastening issues require zero defects from fastener manufacturers as production speed and quality depends on them.
While fastener manufacturers have long relied on sorting to remove defects before they enter production, the fact is that cold heading, moving and inscribing metal with threads is not entire……..
