Special Riveting Machine Philips:
- high quality radial formed rivet joints, in 1 cycle on 2 sides of the product.
- Quick and accurate fixation of the product.
- Doubles throughput even in small to medium runs. (Calculate R.O.I.)
The machine consists of a compact rigid frame construction to support the 2 BalTec radial riveting heads. A special mould is placed between the 2 riveting heads to fixate, position and support different parts of the product during the riveting process.
The product this machine is designed for consists of a folding frame construction with 3 wheels. Philips once designed this folding cart to temporarily support a flat tyre in order to reach a tyre service centre.
3 special purpose riveting machines are used to assemble the entire philips folding cart:
- Two parts of the folding frame are riveted in 1 cycle. The difficulty lies in the support on the inside of the frame during riveting.
- The 2 rear wheels are 'clicked' into the mould of the second riveting machine and with 1 press on the button the wheels are mounted to the frame.
- The front wheel is mounted to the frame by the third riveting machine.
The additional special purpose riveting tools are also designed and manufactured by Verborg Engineering.
