Automotive Industry 4.0

The automotive industry is constantly evolving. With new, advanced vehicle models rolling off assembly lines every day, the need for equally advanced assembly line technology has become critical for automotive manufacturers. Pair this with changing safety standards and customer expectations, and it makes sense why many automotive manufacturers are required to update their assembly line tools and technology on a regular basis. However, for many manufacturers, an assembly line upgrade can mean downtime, process glitches, and other headaches on the horizon. 

Automate Your Automotive Assembly Line Torque Tools

Leveraging the power of LabVIEW, the CMC Driver for Open Protocol Torque Tools helps automotive manufacturers take control over their operations. From easy torque tool automation to reduced development and testing times, it simplifies the process of swapping out new tools and integrating them into larger systems without halting operations due to code rewriting, hardware failures, bugs, and more.  Here’s a quick snapshot of what the CMC Driver for Open Protocol Torque Tools can do for your automotive assembly line:

  • Automate your assembly process
  • Simulate when hardware is not available
  • Customize your torque applications
  • Swap Tools whenever necessary
  • No Changes to code for new tools

Combining torque tool simulation, torque application selection, tightening result subscriptions, multi-spindle control, tool enable/disable features, discrete I/O, keep-alive, and other analogous features, the CMC Driver for Open Protocol Torque Tools brings intelligence to your automotive assembly line, giving you added versatility and scalability.  Start integrating torque tool automation tasks into your LabVIEW program within minutes.

Optimize Your Automotive Manufacturing Operations

Whether keeping up with new safety standards or boosting assembly line efficiency, the CMC Driver for Open Protocol Torque Tools helps automotive manufacturers increase yield rates and decrease downtime without sacrificing quality. By providing a simple API to program torque tool automation, manufacturers can get new assembly lines up and running faster, making it easier to integrate, monitor, and debug torque tool communications. Automotive manufacturers can also utilize the driver's torque tool simulator function to simulate automation tasks while waiting for torque tool hardware to arrive.
