Flexible, versatile solutions for post-molded Insert installation into thermoplastic and thermoset plastics.
Our machines are the ideal foundation for stand-alone systems and enhanced assembly systems provided by SPIROL.
Optional equipment and features include:
Our standardized, time-tested, modular designs are robust, reliable and easily adjustable — allowing simple customization to meet the specific needs of your application.
We specialize in custom application-specific part holding devices. Fixturing – holding your components accurately and firmly during insertion – is a critical element to the performance of your assembly equipment.
Manual Insert Drivers require that the Insert be manually loaded into the part or the machine. The operator then completes the installation by pulling the arbor press lever.
Semi-Automatic Insert Drivers require that the Insert be manually loaded into the part. The pneumatic action of the machine, coupled with an adjustable timer, completes the installation of the Insert when actuated.
Automatic Insert Drivers are completely self-contained. The Insert is oriented in a vibratory feeder and fed to a shuttle mechanism that positions the Iinsert directly underneath the insertion quill. The shuttle is mounted on a retracting mechanism that positions the exit bushing as close to the part as possible for insertion yet out of the way for loading and unloading.
