Tool making requires
very high technical qualifications and keenness to quality and detail. For one
to be able to produce tools of required standards, correct rules and
regulations must be followed during the entire process. This is especially so
because tools are the greatest essentials in the manufacturing industry and
therefore influence the entire operations of the economy.
In the olden days,
most tools were made by hand. Tool makers had to use tools like polishing
machines, grinding machines and files to create a quality finish on their
tools. This has however changed with time due to the introduction of
numerically controlled milling, boring and grinding machines which make the
tool making process easy and fast.
There is a need for a
tool maker to be able to understand and interpret technical drawings of an end
product which they intend to get. Operation of technical machines such as
computers and lathes is a plus for one to be able to produce tools that exhibit
quality and modern standards without compromising on the functionality of the
tool in question.
The tool making
process requires a tool maker should protect himself from any hazards. One
should use protective clothing such as gloves to protect his hands, overalls,
hearing devices to protect the ears from the loud noise and eye protectors. One
also needs to be technically fit and a self driven person to survive as a tool
It is important for
anyone in this industry to embrace … Continue reading >>>
When customers think of automotive control modules, what comes to mind are engine control modules, transmission control modules, and body control modules. Some people are genuinely surprised to find there can be as many as 80-120 different control modules functioning in their vehicle, controlling everything from power windows to drive train components. As everyone in the industry knows, as fuel economy, emissions and safety become more important to shoppers; control modules will become even more important to a smooth operating automobile.
At the same time, the
ability of repair shops to diagnose and repair control module problems is being
challenged. Many shops do not have the proper scan tools needed to see deeply enough
into the vehicle’s control module network to determine what is really happening
there. In these cases, the shop is forced to diagnose the vehicle with
circumstantial information instead of with the actual observation of vehicle
network data. This is equivalent to looking at a “boot print” of the
problem instead of actually seeing the boot. This drives questions such as:
- How do I
know that the module is really bad?
- If I
replace the module, will the vehicle start working properly?
- What can
cause the module to go bad?
This is both a
challenge and an opportunity for repair shops and the replacement parts
industry. Two aspects of customer satisfaction affect every business:
satisfaction with the product and satisfaction with the service surrounding it.
This is the premise underlying the processes we sat up … Continue reading >>>
