Hydraulic systems are widely used for automated production because they are robust, reliable and well understood by maintenance personnel.
Henrob uses a refined hydraulics package for automation based on its proven manual systems but typically with the addition of larger control cabinets to house communication busses and Human Machine Interface (HMI) screens.
Recently introduced contol panels using VSD for greater control over the motor greatly enhances the performance of the power pack and saves energy.
Features suited to automated production include:
Integration into fixed automation cells with single or multiple tools
Integration with robots
Customer-specific controls hardware
Variable Speed drives (VSD)
Operation of single or multiple rivet setters from one power-pack
Partial retract positioning of the rivet setter nose to improve cycle time
Rivmon™ - Henrob's proprietary process monitoring system, or HMI screens
Operation with either tape or blow feed rivet delivery systems
Henrob has a wide range of experience in developing automated production lines.
Henrob | Self Pierce Riveting
Henrob is committed to pushing the boundaries of HSPR technology to new levels. Its philosophy - "an innovator not an imitator" - is realised in a corporate culture based on entrepreneurial and creative flair. We are extremely proud of having in our Henrob family the largest and most talented group of people solely dedicated to self-pierce riveting technology.
Henrob’s philosophy is to design reliable, robust solutions for production. This is achieved with the aid of 3D computer-aided design (CAD) software allowing in-depth modeling of tools and product access studies. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software is used to ensure adequate life expectancy of components. Design data can be exchanged via the web, e-mail or FTP servers, offering rapid turnaround of rivet joint designs and equipment proposals.
Henrob applications engineers add fastening and assembly expertise to your technical team. After a careful review of your joint and installation needs, they will propose a complete fastener and tool specification suited to your application requirements and production environment. They may even suggest product design changes to allow more efficient assembly.
Whether developing a new product or streamlining assembly of an existing one, you can rely on Henrob's experience and innovation in fastening technology. From standard tools to customised systems, from rivet joint design assistance to automated assembly cells, Henrob can find your optimal solution.
Henrob fastening systems have benefited applications in a wide variety of industries around the world. View our case studies to see how we have helped customers cut in-place costs while improving their assemblies and finished products.
Henrob Self-Pierce Riveting (HSPR) is a cold joining process used to fasten two or more sheets of material by driving a rivet through the top sheet(s) and upsetting the rivet, under the influence of a die, into the lower sheet without piercing it.
