Why Is Efficient Fastener Insertion Important?

The introduction of Haeger's full line of machines featuring their SingleTouch Part Handling Technology has brought about a crucial advancement in the realm of fastener insertion. These machines can insert up to four different fasteners in a single handling of a part, revolutionizing the efficiency of the process. In fact, this technology is regarded as the most substantial enhancement to hardware insertion productivity since the advent of automatic tooling systems. 

The utilization of Haeger machines leads to the optimization of labor, improved quality, and a remarkable increase in productivity. By integrating this innovative technology, Haeger facilitates a significant improvement in fastener insertion operations, allowing businesses to streamline their processes and achieve greater efficiency and profitability.

When fasteners are inserted manually, efficiency takes a major hit, as does accuracy. When speed, repeatability, and accuracy are paramount, using a Haeger machine will ensure success. Manually inserting fasteners is labor intensive, and quality control becomes a significant issue.
