Monitoring of tightening processes via sensor technology

The Robert Bosch GmbH plant in Reutlingen uses a sensor-based monitoring of tightening processes during the manufacturing of hybrid control units. A vibration sensor measures the impact speed of manual tightening processes and transmits data to the operation panel. Here, employees can view real-time visualisations of the measured data and gain vital information about the tightening process. In doing so, employees receive immediate feedback and can optimize their operations which leads to an increase in quality for the whole manufacturing process.
