SPIROL Pin Inserters feed all common types of pins — headed or straight — as well as bushings, rivets, compression limiters, and many other similar components.
Whether your requirements are for a standard pin inserter with or without fixturing or a custom designed system, our objective is to build reliable and cost effective equipment that provides the right degree of automation based on the volume and complexity of the assembly process involved; the degree of automation that yields the lowest per unit assembly cost and the optimum pay back.
Manual Pin Inserters and Pin Driving Chucks provide sturdy, economical installation methods for low-volume work and prototype designs. Manual inserters require that the fastener be manually loaded into the part or the machine. The operator then completes the installation by depressing the arbor press lever.
Automatic Inserters are completely self-contained. The fastener is oriented in a vibratory feeder and fed to a shuttle mechanism that positions the fastener directly underneath the insertion quill. The shuttle is mounted on a retracting mechanism that positions the shuttle as close to the part as possible for insertion, yet out of the way for loading and unloading.
Vertical Pin Inserters are available in a wide range of sizes matched to pin lengths and insertion force requirements. Standard machines capable of simultaneous multiple insertions are available.
Horizontal Pin Inserters for single or multiple installations feature rotary shuttles for reliable pin orientation.
The Model PM Manual Pin Inserter installs pins ranging in diameter from 0.8mm-4mm (.031”-.156”) with a maximum insertion force of 0.9 kN (200 lbs).
The Model PMH Heavy Duty Manual Pin Inserter installs pins ranging in diameter from 0.8mm-10mm (.031”-.375”) with a maximum insertion force of 6.7 kN (1,500 lbs).
The Model DP Drilling and Pinning machine can drill holes ranging in diameter from 0.8mm-6mm (.031”-.250”) and is capable of insertion forces up to 8 kN (1,800 lbs).
