Target: Zero Defects
As manufacturers look to lightweight materials for improved fuel economy, the associated fastening problems necessitate zero defects through 100% inspection. Del Williams reports
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.
