Robotic capabilities allow hands-off installation of self-clinching fasteners

March 28, 2012

Clear Automation and PennEngineering® have introduced robotic capabilities engineered for the PEMSERTER® Series 3000™ fastener-installation press. The system allows hands-off installation of self-clinching fasteners.

The system picks up, moves, and positions a workpiece for alignment with holes where fasteners will be installed automatically by the press. After fastener installation, the robot removes the finished workpiece and advances to the next job.

Two standard packages are available. The turnkey package integrates an input conveyor with locator, output conveyor, gripper, FANUC robot, and a basic sequence program.
