Identifying the need

Getting started requires assessing existing processes. At what stage of production does manual screwdriving slow down operations, lead to errors or cause unnecessary workload?

Automation can be used to speed up repetitive tasks, improve the accuracy of processes or improve working conditions. A clear understanding of the needs is the first step towards a successful automation project.

Defining the requirements

Once the need has been identified, it’s time to define more precisely what is needed:

  • The purpose of the screwdriving solution: What will be fixed and where? The shape of the mounting surface and the mounting conditions are important factors in the design of the screwdriving unit tip piece.
  • The screw dimensions: The screw dimensions are crucial when determining how to feed the screw into the screwdriver. A screw head that is too large relative to the screw length can make it impossible to feed the screw through a pipe. As a good rule of thumb, the screw shank should be at least 2 mm longer than the diameter of the screw head.
  • The necessary torque: It’s essential to know the required torque and its range of fluctuation. Any restrictions on the speed of the screwdriver should also be taken into account, especially for materials where excessive speed can damage the material.
  • The working phase: Do you want a fully automated or semi-automated solution? For high-volume and long-term production, full automation is often more profitable.

Choosing a partner

When choosing a partner to implement your screwdriving automation, you should find an expert who understands both the technical requirements and the details of the production process.

This ensures not only quality products, but also in-depth expertise and support at every stage of the project. Experience in similar projects and the ability to customize solutions to your specific needs are key to making your choice.
