New demonstration facility

Spirol Industries has announced that it has opened a new customer demonstration facility at its headquarters in Corby, Northamptonshire.

"Featuring leading-edge automatic machines for pinning and insert assembly, the facility has been established in order to allow customers and potential customers to assess the company's automation technology", says Spirol's Andrew Freeman."We also are encouraging them to bring samples of their own products when they visit so that their suitability for automated assembly can be evaluated."

The company's objective is to enhance competitivness by the provision of installation machines that offer customers increased productivity and reduced manufacturing costs, states Andrew Freeman. "The installation technology includes flexible, versatile solutions to post-moulded insert installation into thermoplastics and thermoset plastics.

"The machines are a suitable foundation for stand-alone systems and enhanced assembly systems. More than 80% of the components in Spirol's machines are pre-tested and production-proven standard items thus ensuring faster delivery, greater reliability, and a low-cost investment."

Andrew Freeman points out that the company has developed its equipment range in response to the fact that customers have found inconsistencies with insert performance after installation."Correct installation is the key to the insert meeting the required torque or pull-out specifications required by the application."

In addition to inserts for plastics Spirol offers coiled and slotted spring pins, spacers, and other tubular products as well as threaded inserts, milled brass nuts, shims, pins, and vibratory parts feeders.
