The purpose of this project was to study the process of high speed fastening to not only reduce the process time but also improve its efficiency. To study this process, a prototype robot was designed and developed to perform High Speed Screw Fastening Operations. The process included an automated Screw Pick Up and a High Speed Fastening operation using a Servo Torque Driver. The Screw Fastening Data was collected using a Real-Time Monitoring Program from the Servo Torque Driver. This data was analyzed using the Taguchi methods to verify the feasibility of the process in a mass manufacturing environment.
