Software modules designed for torque management 25 November 2022

Crane has announced the launch of Curatas, a suite of software modules, each designed to enhance the manufacturing process by enabling users to take complete control of their assembly and auditing procedures. The first of these software modules is Curatas Wrench Control, designed as a digital companion to torque wrenches.

Designed to aid businesses within the automotive, aerospace, construction, marine and rail industries, Crane aims to deliver a digital torque management solution, ideal for a variety of applications.

“At Crane, our products are each designed specifically to enhance manufacturing processes across the globe and our forward thinking Curatas range is no exception. An extension of our innovative torque management range, the Curatas software refines the manufacturing process by not only optimising speed and efficiency but tackling error reduction,” says Adrian Duffin, managing director of Crane Electronics.

The first of the Curatas range to be released was Curatas Wrench Control, a software solution specifically created for Crane’s digital torque wrenches and TCI lineside controllers. The Curatas Wrench Control software allows manufacturing leads to set up a user-friendly visual sequence of actions that an operator can then follow to successfully complete part or full assembly.

“We are extremely pleased to reveal the first of our Curatas range, Curatas Wrench Control, software that will help save costs while improving overall performance levels and product quality when used with our digital torque wrenches and TCI lineside controllers. With Curatas Wrench Control enabling manufacturers to pre-programme assembly instructions, it reduces the amount of operator training required, making it not only a timesaving but cost-effective solution too,” adds Adrian Duffin.

The Wrench Control software allows users to record targets and measurements, while reducing the chance of error, as the software instantly flags any inaccurate or imprecise torque readings. The data can then be retrieved and viewed in easy-to-read reports and graphs. The software can be set up on a single workstation or as part of multiple assembly stations, depending on the needs of each user and whether they are working on part assembly or the full component.
