Manual Tabletop Screw Tightening Assembly Station


AGI designs and builds low-cost screw tightening and assembly solution for your assembly applications with process verification capability. These economical solutions ensure you can deliver quality parts at a repeatable level, confidently. Our Manual screw systems include:

  • ASG-SD2500 Transducerized Closed Loop Torque Controlled Driver and X-PAQ™ Controller
  • Linear Torque Arm and Tool Balancer
  • Dedicated Machined Nest for Part Assembly, Poka-Yoke for anti-rotation.
  • Hinged Lid with Screw Guides to Protect your Product from Damage.
  • Integrated UUT Sensor in nest with part Locking Latch. Verify Batch Complete and Good Run Downs, before part can be removed.
  • Click Series PLC Control and Power Supply Integrate the X-PAQ™ and fixture together.
  • Small NEMA Enclosure for System Controls
  • Integrated Red/Green Light with Audible Alarm

Semi-Automated Screw Tightening Assembly Station


Semi-Automated screw machines are ideal for medium to high volume applications. The closed loop torque-controlled system validates the manufacturing process requirements prior to releasing the part to the operator. Auto feed vibratory bowl delivers the screws to the driver within a second. Integrated barcode scanner provides traceability and data export to plant MES networks.

  • ASG-SD2500 Transducerized Closed Loop Torque Controlled Driver and X-PAQ™ Controller
  • Auto Feed Screw System, with vibratory, low noise coated feeder bowls
  • Linear Torque Arm and Tool Balancer
  • Proface™ HMI for Operator Interface which Includes UUT Recipe Editor and Maintenance Screens
  • Integrated Barcode Scanner for Data Logging Torque Values and Serial Numbers to your MES System
  • Optional Locking bowl feeder with bar code access to prevent screw mixing.
  • AGI’s Controls Engineers prefer PLC’s: Allen Bradley™, Omron™, Mitsubishi™


Integrating an X-PAQ™ with a torque arm with absolute encoders provides feedback to disable or enable the handheld tool based upon preprogrammed locations for proper Fastener Sequence.
