For Immediate Release:
significantly improve manufacturing quality without breaking the bank
Diego, CA, September 28th, 2009 – Firms in the light assembly and
manufacturing spaces are facing
a struggle to maintain product quality, while looking at shrinking
capital equipment and personnel. Engineers and technicians are finding
themselves having to do much more with much less. Eddie Silverberg, CEO
Assembly Systems, a leading integrator of torque tools and equipment,
advice on three simple ways his customers have succeeded in improving
manufacturing quality on small budgets:
Create an in-house calibration and repair management
Equipment failure can cost many
thousands of dollars in
product recall, product replacement, and lost worker productivity.
Manufacturing firms can face significant issues around throughput and
quality if equipment isn’t properly maintained. “Setting up an in-house
calibration program is a lot easier than most people think. Being a
disciplined about tool use saves lots of money on the back end,” says
programs include finding an in-house advocate to lead the program,
regular calibration and maintenance intervals for tools, and investing
on-site calibration systems like torque

Ergonomics have a role in improving
throughput, and product quality. The sheer number of industrial
products available has grown tremendously over the past two decades.
options give manufacturers inexpensive options to implement.
improving the ergonomic workspace is as simple as buying a new tool
Other times, an ergonomic torque
screwdriver is worth its weight in gold,”

come to us after purchasing automated
screwfeeders, and wondered how they got
the job done before they found us. We’re
always hearing positive feedback about the simple systems we’ve put in

help preserve the budget, and keep quality high.
