From Zero to Fully Automated Screw Fastening


While automation technology has evolved from waterpower and steam engines to the proliferation of electric cars, internet of things (IoT) technologies and the advanced computational abilities needed to run them, screws are still widely used to hold the world together. These twisted inclined planes come in many forms, from tiny watch screws meant for intricate work, to more rough-and-ready helix-cylinders that secure wooden decks.

While the basic screw concept has stayed the same for hundreds of years, drive technology has advanced from simple flathead to hex and torx driving models. Installation technologies have rapidly evolved in parallel allowing advanced assembly for efficient production of highly qualified assemblies.
