Guide to fastener automation

A new CD, 'Guide to Fastener Automation', has been made available by Spirol Industries.

It provides technical details of all of the company's automation products and its engineering services together with intuitive video guides for each product range.

Spirol's Andrew Freeman reports that the range of engineering products and services provided by the company "ensures that our customers achieve the optimum fastening solution for the assembly at the lowest installed cost. To support this we offer a range of equipment for fast and reliable fastener installation and parts feeding of pins, compression limiters, bushings, and inserts."

The automation products range includes pin inserters and pinning systems, heat insert drivers, self-tapping insert drivers, vibratory feed systems, and radial inverters. "All machines can be supplied with application-specific fixturing. In addition, for greater product efficiency and additional time-savings, plastic component feeding and insert-present sensing technology can be combined with insert installation.
