Sterling Heights, Mich. (PRWEB) June 26, 2008
Sterling Heights, Mich.-based Eagle Thread Verifier, LLC, makers of an automated thread gauge system, announced today that Warren, Mich.-based U.S. Manufacturing has installed an eight-spindle Eagle Thread Verifier (ETV) for quality inspection of its 16-hole differential case housing for five new world transmissions. U.S. Manufacturing sells its powertrain components to some of the leading Tier One Automotive Suppliers in the US.
The Eagle Thread Verifier is used to identify non-conforming parts earlier in the process and to reduce the number that might be produced otherwise. The ETV has saved thousands of dollars in non-conforming parts being shipped to customers throughout the automotive industry and is used as a quality control automation tool throughout many manufacturing plants in the Midwest.
Frank J. Oriold, program engineering manager for U.S. Manufacturing stated, "The ETV has done its job already in the first two months of implementation. One particular day last month, the system caught an error while the customer was visiting us on the plant floor. I'm satisfied!"
The ETV spindle can be added to an existing cell or Eagle Thread Verifier engineers will design and build a manual or automatic load "turnkey" system to fit the application. Manufacturers interested in receiving product specifications for the Eagle Thread Verifier system should contact ETV at (586) 764-8218 or visit http://www.eaglethreadverifier.com.
