Machine Description – Solid base frame with turntable admission. – Turntable with 12 workpiece holders. – The workpiece holders are designed such that via an adapter different sizes can be processed. – The heating element consists 6 segments which are individually controlled. The heating elements are placed about 2 – 3 mm over the workpieces. – The heating of the riveting works via heat radiation. – The different heights of the workpieces are compensated threw the adapters, so that the top is always the same. – Printing unit consisting of plunger, pressure spindle and servo motor. – The plunger is designed so that threw an additional pressure plate the metal plate is pressed to the fan wheel (hold-down function). – The pressure is monitored via a pressure force sensor. Threw a path measuring system the thickness of the fan wheel is monitored. – The unloading station consists a Pneumatic cylinder with gripper and a discharge chute. – In the discharge chute a stopper cylinder is positioned, which stops the reject parts. – The control of the machine works via a PLC. – The machine is in the danger zone housed with a security fence.
The machine is manually loaded, the fan wheel and the metal disc are plugged together on a separate station which is next to the machine.
