A screw dramatically changes automation

In recent years, automation has been promoted in all manufacturing sites. Among such automation, the screw fastening process causes a lot of problems. The screw fastening process is often regarded as not being so important, but it is difficult to repeat fastening accuracy required by the manufacturing site, and its failure has a great impact on the entire automation line. Screws and screwdrivers play key roles in the screw fastening process in automation. By reviewing the procedures involved, it will be possible to establish an “automation line that never stops”.

The key for the solution is “fitting performance between screws and bits”

Most of the problems in screw fastening occur when fitting a screw to a workpiece. This problem can be solved by "compatibility between a screw and a bit", in other words, "high fitting performance". Two important points of fitting performance are "the bit is easy to fit into the screw recess" and "there is no wobbling when fastening". Improving this fitting performance will dramatically improve work efficiency, contributing to higher productivity and lower costs.

Newly designed
Super Point
(Guide & lock function)
  • 1
    High fitting performance
    INTRTORQUE has excellent straightness, which enables highly difficult horizontal and diagonal fastening.
  • 2
    High compatibility with FA equipment and robots
    Misalignment (offset) with screw hole hardly occurs and screws can be fastened without rolling.
  • 3
    No thrust is required.
    Fastening can be done by simply turning the screwdriver in the fastening direction, so there is no damage to the workpiece.
  • 4
    Unparalleled bit durability
    The durability is 10 times higher than that of cross head bits, which greatly reduces frequency of bit replacement and leads to cost reduction.
  • 5
    Maintains constant conditions
    Highly durable bits with high fitting accuracy and easy numerical control ensure stable repeated work.
    * Applicable screw sizes: M1.2 to M10 (For other sizes, please contact HIOS.)

Two benefits of INTRTORQUE

1. “Cost reduction and improved productivity”
2. “Comfort and safety” at screw fastening sites

Automating Data Management of Screw Fastening

One of the advantages of manufacturing automation is easy central management of manufacturing data. In automated screw fastening we propose, the screwdriver itself judges OK or NG of each screw fastening, detects errors with high accuracy, and saves data. This makes it easy to ensure screw fastening quality and traceability management. In addition, since the data can be centrally managed without manual intervention, human workload and errors can be greatly reduced.

High precision screwdriver with OK/NG judgement function

  • 1
    High-precision error detection
    The built-in torque sensor detects screw fastening errors and problems such as insufficient torque and cross threaded fastening.
  • 2
    Maintains stable torque
    A highly durable brushless motor maintains stable screw fastening quality.
  • 3
    Visualization of work data
    Visualization of the screw fastening process, from quality control to traceability management.
  • 4
    Easy bit replacement
    A screw type is also available that allows bit replacement without removing the attachment (PGFR).
  • 5
    Vacuum screw pickup attachment
    A vacuum screw pickup attachment can pick up screws with different head shapes, and can also handle stainless steel and plastic screws.
    It can also be used for difficult screw fastening such as screw fastening in narrow spaces, obstructions and deep recessed holes. (PGFR)
