While we forged our business with traditional hand tools, we've expanded our digital offering with wireless tools for error proofing and digital torque testers with calibration tracking software programs.
A variety of software programs work with Sturtevant Richmont tools. The SR programs that interface with our wireless tools include:
The Global Series process monitors are also Ethernet capable, Open Protocol enabled, and interface with ToolsNet. Support for Open Protocol and ToolsNet is available at their respective websites.
The System 8 Digital Torque Tester and the TorqTronics 2 interface with SR reporting software Torque Tool Manager 4.0. To purchase Torque Tool Manager see your Sturtevant Richmont sales professional.
To download a demo copy of our calibration reporting software, Torque Tool Manager 4.0 click here.
Both the System 8 and TorqTronics 2 are equipped with transducer overload alarms and quality protection protocols called "Fail Safe Engineering." When a transducer is taken to 120% or more of the rated capacity the Fail Safe Engineering protocols are triggered. Tester functionality changes, a flashing red LED can attract attention from across a room. There are other indicators on the tester display screen telling workers to ensure that the transducer is tested prior to returning it to service. For more information about Fail Safe Engineering, click here. For information on how to verify transducer status, click here.
Once verified that the transducer is fully functional and may be returned to service, use one of the available Terminal programs to reset the Fail Safe Engineering protocol and return the transducer to normal function. Multiple Terminal programs are available for use. Be sure that the Terminal program you select is compatible with your operating system.
The Exacta 2 interfaces with Exawin. Please note that Exawin is not functional with all versions of Microsoft operating systems. You must operate in Windows 7, Windows XP, or Virtual XP.
ExaWin is also compatible with our Veritorq digital torque tester.
ExaWin and the instruction manual may be downloaded from the pages with which ExaWin is compatible. Those products are:
Error Proofing From A Different Angle: Definition of error proofing and some observations by W. Edwards Deming.
Finding The Balance: In error proofing "one size fits no one." To find what fits in your organization, start with the fundamental question of "How much responsibility for error proofing should be given to the tool and how much should be operator responsibility?" This section provides more on this concept.
Six Error Proofing Scenarios: Error proofing solutions all have trade-offs. You can have control or you can have flexibility. How often do you get both? This page looks at error proofing extremes as well as the middle ground.
How Much Are You Investing In Errors? If your current error proofing system or approach still leaves you with errors you are investing in errors, not error proofing. Error proofing is about quality and it is also very much about dollars and common sense. This page delves into that.
Understanding The Common Centerline: Not having a common centerline is one invisible place where your error proofing approach can introduce errors instead of eliminating them. If you want to know how to calculate a common centerline and why it is important this page is for you.
