Phillips Corp. offers the Haeger 824 MSP insertion machine. Its manual four-station turret allows insertion of four different fasteners in the same part handling. The PLC touchscreen allows the operator to set force, dwell, up-travel, batch counter, and TPS for each station.
The hydraulic machine delivers 8 tons of ram force, with a 24-in. throat depth. Its positive-stop cylinder is designed for use with soft materials such as aluminum so that fasteners can be inserted without crushing or deforming the part.
The patented safety system is effective at any point in the ram stroke, regardless of the tooling length, and it requires no operator setup. The variable dwell timer is available for inserting fasteners into stainless steel.
