Abstract:
New fastener feeding approaches are compared with existing bowl feeders and hoppers. A “smart” hopper for headed fasteners and slug rivets combines a fastener sensor with robust mechanics. The coiled tube magazine system uses briefcase sized magazines with integral escapements. These magazines can handle slugs or headed fasteners. For slug rivets, a magazine based system uses off-line loading to eliminate system slow-down due to debris or bulk fastener problems. A system for collars and nuts can feed various fasteners down a flexible tube to the installation point, requiring ten seconds to change fasteners.
