Project Portfolio Spotlight: Half-Shaft Insertion Confirmation Tool

Half-Shaft Insertion Confirmation ToolWorking for a major US OEM, Signal.X has conceptualized, designed and deployed a production-line tool that confirms proper retention of automotive half-shafts during assembly. This tool utilizes a proprietary algorithm that conditions a dynamic response signal from a magnetically mounted sensor and communicates to a base station that synchronizes to the line controller. An operator will attach this tool and manipulate the half-shaft into position while to tool automatically confirms proper engagement of the snap ring.
