Abstract:
Electroimpact has developed a new automated squeeze riveting process. This process utilizes an innovative coaxial riveting head design in which the drill spindle and rivet driver share a common servo axis, with a simple toggle mechanism to switch which tool is active. This system has been optimized for the installation of headed solid rivets which can be automatically installed without the need for additional process tools beyond the drill and driver. By optimizing for the requirements of these rivets, Electroimpact has been able to eliminate much of the complexity typically seen on automated fastening equipment, resulting in an unprecedentedly simple and cost-effective design.
