In-die feeding system installs fasteners during stamping

The Pemserter in-die fastener feeding system has been engineered to install self-clinching nuts, studs, and standoffs in assemblies during the stamping process.

Working in tandem with a stamping press to feed and install fasteners, this portable system from PennEngineering eliminates secondary operations typically required for fastener insertions.

Operators can increase assembly-line productivity, quality, and savings as both stamping and fastener-installation can be performed simultaneously in the die. The maker tells us that the system is virtually plug and play by utilising multi-pin twist lock connectors to interface with the die and stamping press. The system can be configured for multiple or single insertions, generally matching the rate of the stamping press.

For set-up and operation, the user is guided by a touch-screen and online help screens. Removable tooling can handle complex workpieces and offers considerable adaptability capable of reaching into areas generally considered inaccessible. Customised tooling can be engineered to meet particular application needs.
