The customer needed to rivet washers and springs to a plunger body to create a secure work piece.
The customer was having trouble with current cycle time and volume was expected to increase. They were intrigued by the capability of the RNR-181 indexing riveting station.
Due to the increased volume and need to decrease cycle time, BalTec suggested the RNR-181 indexing riveting station. This station incorporated a four position indexer to allow for increased output. The ability of the 181 to quickly form the rivets in less than 2 seconds further decreased cycle time and increased output.
