Less Stress Quality Assurance
Rencol Tolerance Rings is a specialist manufacturer producing high specification components for varied applications. The company wanted to automate its quality assurance processes and to gain additional insight into its product quality. Rencol chose Wonderware’s QI Analyst™ software in both trial and full role-out stages, Quality is now far easier to achieve and customers can be provided with full statistical information.
Rencol is the only company in the world solely focusing on the design and manufacture of Tolerance Rings that are individually developed for each customer specific application; the products are produced in volume to extraordinary levels of accuracy and consistency. Tolerance Rings are radial spring fasteners that are press fitted between two mating components, generating a retention force that fixes those components together, whilst also providing additional functional requirements such as Torque Drive, Overload Protection, NVH (Harmonic Vibration) Performance and Differential Thermal Expansion. Thus mass produced components can be guaranteed to provide exact fit and new operational advantages can be achieved by using this technology.
