SPIROL (Danielson, CT) announces the release of a new line of standard installation equipment specifically designed to post-mold install Compression Limiters into plastic assemblies. Available in two models, the CL1000 (1,000 lbs. maximum installation force) and the CL2000 (2.000 lbs. maximum installation force), the Model CL Compression Limiter Installation Machine can install a single Compression Limiter or multiple Compressions Limiters simultaneously into a variety of polymers, thermoplastics and thermosets. The Compression Limiters may vary in size, configuration and installation elevations. Other features include:
- Full perimeter guarding, light curtain and hands clear activation to keep operators safe.
- The use of sensors to verify proper installation of the Compression Limiter(s), ensuring a quality installation.
- A touchscreen operator interface, making the Model CL easy to customize and operate, and the conversion to other languages is easily executed to support international use.
The Model CL can be used as a stand-alone module, or can be integrated into a larger, fully automated cell. SPIROL’s Compression Limiter Installation Machines are versatile solutions that can be retooled to accommodate changing part configurations.
