Flexible All Electric Riveter 2019-01-1333

A new style of all electric riveting machine has been developed with saddle hoppers that does not require a track between the hoppers and the fingers. This enables feeding square rivets without difficulty. The upper ram has a bent knee which allows the rivet fingers to be brought up to the hopper and rotated 30 degrees rather than the rivet sliding down a track, which minimizes jamming that occurs with some fasteners in the track, and increases reliability. A mixture of fasteners can be loaded side by side in the hoppers, increasing flexibility. The rivet feeding is accomplished by bringing the rivet fingers to the hopper. The machine uses a power drawbar to change out different rivet fingers. A small industrial robot is incorporated into the machine to complete different sized coupons and also complete small assemblies. In larger machines larger robots or CNC positioners can be used to scale up the use of the machine.
