Process evaluation of the clinching process with force-displacement evaluation

In order to save costs during the production of components and sheet metal assemblies in progressive tools or transfer tools, the fasteners are pressed into the components at the same time.

With the new process evaluation for AUTORIV® A100 you can guarantee the hightest quality of your products and can thus achieve maximum satisfaction of your customers. With the optional process evaluation, you can expand the already existing process monitoring by two more possibilities:

  • Process evaluation of the clinching process with display of setting process OK / NOK
  • Process evaluation of the clinching process with force-displacement evaluation and display of setting process OK / NOK

You thus receive maximum safety in the overall process with error detection and process optimization in real time.

Functionality of the process evaluation

The specially developed IMO / IMV module is integrated in the stamping tool together with the die head and transfers the process data to the controller during each stroke. Data can be visualized graphically and - if necessary - can be edited on the display of the controller. Depending on the die head, different fasteners such as clinching, self-piercing, riveting and blind rivet fasteners or special parts can be evaluated.

You thus receive maximum safety in the overall process with error detection and process optimization in real time.
