Custom Manufactured Riveting Machine for the Electrical Industry

This unit consisted of two air-powered, Model 173 riveters mounted on a steel table with provisions to manually adjust each head to suit riveting centers. Also included were manually operated fixture blocks. This tooling enabled customer to place fixture in riveting position and manually rotate the fixture to set rivets (2 per cycle) at required locations. For operator safety, the unit included Lexan guarding which covered the tooling area and dual optical-touch buttons for cycling the unit.

Approximately 22 years ago Chicago Rivet & Machine Co. supplied this customer with a similar riveting system. The main difference was that when the fixture block was manually placed in riveting position, an automatic indexer rotated the part to each rivet location. That original unit is still used in production, as a fully automated option of this process is also available.
