All-Electric Automated Fastening 982127

As the aerospace industry approaches the 21st century, high standards of quality and the need for innovative solutions in automated fastening has prompted new developments in automated fastening equipment. Applying today's current technology to a concept created decades ago, Machine Dynamics has designed and produced an all-electric riveting machine. Utilizing roller screw technology with a servo driven motion control system, the all-electric riveter offers the power and speed heavy production demands without the use of hydraulics. This paper explains the origins of the electric riveter, the roller screw technology being applied to today's production equipment, state-of-the-art control system required and the unique features that are a direct derivative of the electric system.
