Are Your Workers Still Swinging Hammers?

This traditional method for driving parts ranks as the third leading cause of injury in the manufacturing of metal products. Only overexertion and falls come ahead on the list.

In most cases, injuries take the form of broken or bruised fingers. Other injuries can be caused by long term exposure to the repetitive motion of swinging, which can lead to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other health problems.

Serious injuries can result in extended time off of work or lasting disabilities. Additionally, employers can end up losing over $50,000 per occurrence.

Fortunately, Honsa has a solution for you!

Improve Your Assembly Productivity

For over thirty years, Honsa has designed solutions for driving parts such as:

  • Pins
  • Dowels
  • Shafts
  • Plugs
  • Axles
  • Bearings
  • Bushings

Our tools can drive parts up to 70 pounds and 6 inches in diameter. In most situations, solutions are engineered to complete assembly in three seconds or less.

Case Studies

1. The application below required twelve to thirteen blows to drive a one-inch pin. This took about fifteen seconds. The solution from Honsa drives the pin in three seconds; 1/5th the time.
