Ensure high-level error proofing, while improving productivity and quality control on your assembly line. When error proofing is a must, Panasonic assembly qualifiers enable easy wireless communication with our versatile assembly tools. Our single tool controller is equipped with discrete I/O, allowing it to integrate into a programmable logic controller, enable/disable the tool, and control various assembly line accessories.

Reduce the amount of defects by incorporating the Assembly Qualifier (AQ). The AQ provides that next level of security through error proofing. Simply connect the controller to a PLC for capturing OK/NOK torque events to be sure all fasteners are installed correctly to prevent defects from moving down the assembly line.
The simple to use AQ software allows for quick programming of the AQ because all of the settings are consolidated into one page. Therefore we’ve eliminated the need to hunt for hidden settings. Easily and quickly create, backup or restore previous controller setting within seconds of connecting to the AQ.
The AQ is equipped with a key lock on the side for registering a tool to the controller. The AQ uses Xbee, a form of ZigBee®, to communicate wirelessly with Panasonic assembly tools providing a secure network. Due to the security and frequency that Xbee uses virtually no other wireless devices are affected by the signal.
Reduce the overall assembly process time with an operator visual for OK / NOK status. The highly visible control panel can be seen over 20’ away. The adjustable audible tone registers up to 85 db to notify the operator of a pass or failed fastener. This visual and audio feedback helps the operator know whether to move on to the next fastener or stop and rework the product.
