Auto Throttle Assembly

Problem: A large engine manufacturer challenged Capitol to provide a stamped and assembled critical component used on each of their small engines. While the stamping was of no issue, the first design of the assembly process had a plastic fuel valve, requiring a separate spot welded nut and a screw for mounting it. These loose parts, presented an inventory problem resulting in slow assembly time and further inconsistencies in torqueing the screw to the nut.
The Capitol Solution…
Changing the original designed valve to a self-tapping style valve and then introducing an electric torque screwdriver to offer optimum torque consistency preventing assembly line stripping. By not having to weld the nut to the stamping we saved precious labor time and cost to the customer while providing an improved quality product.
Let Capitol’s engineers put their ideas to work for you.
