Product description

In different fields of production the assembly with hand-operated tools is a common practice, e.g. concerning the screwing of certain vehicle parts. To secure screw connections, single work steps have to be performed in the correct order. But the monitoring of all screwing operations cannot be realized easily by now. Existing monitoring systems are inflexible and cost-intensive. Therefore, the Fraunhofer IIS developed a cost-effective and innovative wireless sensor technology to upgrade hand-operated tools. This system helps to monitor the production quality and to support the assembly workers. The module is linked to the production system, receives the relevant job und supervises the order fulfillment by means of the sensor data. Furthermore, information to each working step will be combined with position data using algorithms and methods of the Fraunhofer IIS. Those information will be processed in real time and analyzed.
