Production Testing and Inspection Solutions
Advantages of Our Turnkey Assembly Solutions
Tooling Flexibility for Enhanced Production Speed and Versatility
We can engineer an automated assembly solution that integrates seamlessly with your existing tooling and equipment. Wherever possible, operations are streamlined to maximize production speed and efficiency. For example, a single DC nut runner can be automated to perform multiple fastening operations, potentially with multiple different sockets and driving tools.
Automated for Superior Quality and Consistency
Our turnkey assembly systems are engineered to deliver optimum performance through robust data utilization. Our data logging systems are built on careful sequencing and nesting. All production data is preserved in the correct order to facilitate consistent and repeatable assembly operations.
Hardware Flexibility for Seamless Integration
You can specify the type of hardware used (tooling, controls hardware, etc.) to ensure our custom assembly systems integrate seamlessly into your existing production line.
Inventive Low-Cost Approaches to Assembly
Wherever possible, assembly operations are simplified and optimized. For example, if a longer cycle time is available, machine capital cost can be reduced by using one or two nut runners to fasten multiple bolts each.
Fully Integrated into Your Production
We can provide a stand-alone, offline assembly machine to handle a complete custom assembly process. Alternatively, we can integrate a machine into your existing production processes with integrated process tracking and data collection.
Bolt Torque Process Automation
ASC has ample experience setting up bolt rundown systems to complete complex torque and angle specifications. We build our systems to a standard assembly process Cpk of 1.33 (4σ, or no more than 60 machine-caused rejects per 1,000,000 assemblies).
Case Study: Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) Testing
This custom NVH machine engineered at Advanced Systems and Controls tests an axle assembly under varying loads of moderate torque. Precision sensors detect any torque vibrations that are generated by the gearset. The intensity of this vibration is used to determine a torque-induced “noise” level of the axle.
