How to Combine an Automatic Screwdriver With a Tool Changer

Picture your product as it moves down the assembly line. As it comes into a new station, the operator grabs the electric screwdriver, picks up a screw, and fastens it. The next step needs a lower torque for a different type of screw, so your operator puts down the current screwdriver and reaches for another one. Although this all sounds simple for a human, fastening multiple types of screws within the same assembly is a complex automation project. But it doesn’t have to be if you use a tool changer.
