Mountz Teams up with Sony Manufacturing Systems to Promote Screw Feeding Products in North America

San Jose, Calif., - Mountz, Inc - the torque tool specialists and its subsidiary companies in Canada and Mexico have been assigned the North American distributorship for the FEEDKIDS screw presentation products made by Sony Manufacturing Systems. Mountz Inc. offers a wide variety of torque tool solutions and their in-depth knowledge of torque is reflected in their tools' craftsmanship and their ability to provide solutions to both common and uncommon torque applications.

Screw presenters are small, tabletop devices (5"x 7" foot print) used to organize and automate work areas and production cells. Screw presenters make assemblers and the assembly process more efficient by mechanically presenting a screw to a fixed pick up point. For cell or line based assembly, an operator uses a magnetized bit or vacuum attachment to pick up a screw from the presenter screw guide. Conventional assembly methods cause assemblers to inefficiently fumble with screws that are stored in bins or shaker trays. The enhancement of productivity is estimated to improve assembly time by nearly fifty percent.

Automated or robotic type screw presenters are a standard product that presents the screw for automated pick up. These feeders can be used in combination with most any assembly application where a fixed collection point is required. Alternative methods of presenting a screw are cumbersome and very expensive.

Owing to experience, Sony has developed four distinctive models for differing applications.

o 505 for conventional screws and sems screws

o 505F for flat head screws

o 505RS for automated applications

o 707 fully adjustable model, one unit can be adjusted to match screw size

Sony is the leader in screw presenter technology and the FEEDKIDS product is their third generation product line. Mountz provides training, service and calibration for all types of torque tool products and accessories. The FEEDKIDS product comes with a comprehensive manual in multiple languages and an industry best warranty.

Screw presenters are a high precision, yet inexpensive table-top screw-feeder designed to enhance productivity. Mountz provides torque tool solutions to a wide range of industries like aerospace, automotive, electronics, energy, medical, packaging and more. Controlling torque is quintessential for companies to ensure their product's quality, safety and reliability. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn't properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently torqued can vibrate loose, and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners or damage parts. Using a torque tool has become increasingly important for many companies to ensure that proper torque is being applied and maintains gauge requirements associated with the ISO 9001 Quality Standard.
