- Quick and easy integration into the tool
- Quick tool modification due to the plug-and-play system of the supply lines
- Operation in combination with A000 feeding units by MDS-AUTORIV
- Direct query of the ball studs in all positions of the setting head
- Maintenance-friendly design, protective covers and seals can easily be removed
- Robust, wear-resistant design
- Tried-and-tested, reliable technology
General functionality of the setting head for rivet ball studs
The MDS | AUTORIV A100 Assembly System BPR setting head is integrated into the stamping and forming tool. The name BPR stands for Ball Pin Rivet.
The automatic supply of the ball studs happens via a pneumatic pusher.
The ball studs are thereby perched into the sheet. To guarantee a straight position of the BPR rivet ball stud, this rivet ball stud is encased by the plunger. A direct query of the ball studs is possible in all positions. Usually, the ball studs are pressed into the sheet from bottom to top, but customized solutions are available as well.
The feed of the fasteners and the electrical components are located outside of tool's danger zone. Thus, the large bunker can be refilled with rivet ball studs or bolt-shaped rivet elements by the operator without interrupting the cycle.
The supervisory control gives the release signal for the setting process. The setting process only starts when a rivet ball stud is in setting position. It is not possible to perform a no-load stroke.
Depending on the requirements, one or more setting heads are integrated into the tool and are timed by the tool movement.
