Manufacturers are finding that operators are injuring themselves by tripping over air hoses and electric tool cables. Switching to Panasonic Cordless Assembly Tools eliminates the safety hazards of air hoses and electric tool cables. An advantage of using cordless power tools is that they allow you to eliminate air hose and tool cable damage since they can be very abrasive when moved across a finished surface. Panasonic Cordless Tools reduce rework cost and lost production time.
Reduce the overall assembly process time with production tools. Panasonic Assembly Tools automatically shuts-off and instantly provides the operator a visual for OK / NOK status indicating to move on to the next fastener. The highly visible LED light can be seen from the rear of the tool and helps the operator know whether to move on to the next fastener or stop and rework the product.
Quality control is always looking to improve their products and reduce the amount of defects. By utilizing a wireless communication and connecting the tool to a Panasonic Assembly Qualifier, batch counting and line control can be incorporated to prevent defects from moving down the assembly line.
Furthermore, torque data can be transferred via Zigbee communication to an Assembly Qualifier controller for data collection. With the use of a bar code scanner or PLC, the torque data can be married to a serial number for more detailed data collection.
