Torque created a solution by analyzing
the process and concluding that
automating the casting operations
would improve quality, save manpower
and increase work flow. The Solution...
The Casting Catcher
innovative design of The Casting
Catcher improved quality by making
it easier to regulate specific casting
tolerances and has simplified the
detection of problem castings. By
automating this process, the hard
labor of cast hooking has been eliminated
by mechanically catching the castings
at the grinder. Reduction of workman's
compensation claims due to injuries
caused by physical repetitive motion
(Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) provided
substantial savings to the company.
Manpower was also improved by reducing
the need for operators and assigning
them to other positions in the company.
increased production and higher
quality parts have resulted while
decreasing injuries and lost time
of workers. Our customer was so
pleased with the Casting Catcher,
they have purchased additional units
for some of their other facilities
located around the world.
