Bolts Flying

Pulled from our archives, our founder Dennis Fritz tells the story of the Boeing Bolt Sorter.  A system that was very sophisticated for its time.

"We were sorting fasteners of 27 different lengths at a fastener a second and it was fun to watch. It had 27 bins and the fasteners were flying! At first they were flying all over the room, but we got that thing working and it worked at Boeing for many years."
