The next generation Scout Screw Counter helps manufacturers detect and eliminate costly screw-fastening errors during the assembly process. It verifies that all fasteners have been installed and seated properly, plus it takes the control of the assembly process out of operator hands. Designed to detect cross-threading, omissions, unfinished rundowns, and cycle completes, the counter operates jointly with the company’s electric screwdrivers and STC30 or STC40 power supply. With four ports on the side of the counter, a maximum of four screwdrivers can share one program with the unit. MOUNTZ INC., San Jose, CA. (408) 292-2214.
