Avoid Injury with Reduced-Reaction Tool Technology
Ergonomics or tool control? Until recently it’s been an either-or scenario. Manufacturers commonly think reduced reaction power tools don’t provide the torque control they need. Today, assembly tools with reduced-reaction technology are highly accurate, easy to integrate and are more ergonomic than ever before.
Filling the Manufacturing Gap with Women in the Workplace
As the manufacturing industry continues to grow, two million jobs are vacant, and today, manufacturing lines and facilities are mostly male-dominated.
Tool Tip: How Much Torque Do I Need?
Torque is arguably the most important feature of a tool, and many people assume the more power, the better. However, it’s a mistake to assume a “when in doubt, apply more torque” attitude.
Avoid Downtime with Simple, Flexible and Capable Technology
Connected devices and smart, integrated systems help facilities avoid downtime and optimize throughput. Without around-the-clock, remote monitoring, manufacturers risk delayed notice about quality issues or worse, downtime. Connected tool systems that workers can access via an app on a smartphone or browser empower them to retrieve fastening data on demand. These modern fastening tool systems are easy to implement, simple to program and are intuitive for operators.
Ease the Pain of Manufacturing with Ergonomic Assembly Tools
Manufacturing industries rely on assembly tools like air-powered screwdrivers, nut runners and drills. These tools are a driving force in the assembly process, but they can also be the cause of undue pain for operators if ergonomics are not applied to the tool and how the tool is used.
Assembly Tooling for Advanced Aerospace and Defense Materials
Today’s advanced assembly tools are helping aerospace manufacturers produce ever-more complex products while maximizing productivity. Aerospace manufacturing is increasingly outsourced to tier-one, tier-two, and tier-three manufacturers and machine shops.
Simple, Yet Advanced, Tools for All Ages
It’s no secret that the U.S. is facing a shortage of skilled manufacturing workers. There are roughly half a million unfilled manufacturing jobs today. A study by Deloitte found that one of the top reasons these positions typically go unfilled is the shift in desired skillsets “due to the introduction of advanced technologies."
Connectivity: The Key to a Millennial-Run Factory
The new decade welcomes millions of millennials to the workforce. In fact, the generation, born between 1981 and 1996, is now the largest labor force in the U.S., according to Pew research. Many millennials grew up with the World Wide Web and are used to using mobile apps and services to support them in their daily routines.
3 Reasons Why Manufacturing Plants are Choosing Precision Electric and Battery Tools
Industry trends show manufacturing plants are taking advantage of electric and battery tools. Battery-powered tools have become commonplace on the assembly line because they provide freedom from cords and wires, improve safety and ergonomics for workers and offer many of the benefits of electric tools at a lower cost.
Sophisticated fastening tools improve heavy equipment operations
For more than 100 years, professionals have relied on Ingersoll Rand for quality and performance on the toughest jobs. Our advanced engineering and manufacturing have a standard of excellence often copied, but never matched. When it comes to assembly tools, industrial tools, cordless tools and vehicle service tools, don't settle for less. Count on genuine Ingersoll Rand tools, accessories and equipment.
