Application Note | Fuel Injector Insertion: Assembly Verification Using Force Monitoring

Application note coverFuel rail defects for a leading automotive manufacturer were traced to the improper insertion of fuel injectors into the fuel rail. The recurring defects were not found until late in assembly and represented a potential warranty issue as the injectors and fuel rails would experience premature wear due to the improper insertion.

This risk along with high teardown and repair costs led the manufacturer to look for an efficient, reliable and effective way to monitor the simultaneous insertion of the three fuel rail injectors into the fuel rail.
