The pneumatically-operated Automated System is designed for integration into rotary or in-line, automated assembly lines. This system develops 1/2 ton of down force and is ideal as a single point unit for large, insert or staking operations. An input from the customer is required to start the cycle.

As with all of our Heat Staking Machines, our precision CNC machined components using dowel pin construction, making the assembly of our machines precise and repeatable. The cast aluminum head slide has a precision machined pocket for the bearing guide rail. This accurately aligns the head, making it square and perpendicular to the machine base. During the assembly process, this sub-assembly is mated and aligned to the two re-circulating ball bearing blocks. This insures that your stakes or thread inserts are consistent across all surfaces of your part. With our attention to detail, these rugged long lasting machines will retain their accuracy and provide many years of reliable, trouble-free service.
