AdaptiCS Smart Arm – Position Recognition System

Position Recognition System

The AdaptiCS Smart Arm is the ultimate position recognition system.  Smart arms are able to guide the operator in programmable torque patterns as well as count fasteners required for correct assembly.

Error Proofing

AdaptiCS Smart Arms error-proof your assembly process by enabling the torque tool to operate only when it is at the correct location, sequence step (optional), and that the appropriate torque program is used at each location.

Quality Assurance

These systems are very precise and can be changed in minutes with no special software. It is able to integrate with plant manufacturing execution software or allow for custom programming.
