Automatic Rivet Feeding & Rivet Driving
Our automatic rivet feeding systems are ideal for manufacturing environments requiring rivet feeding automation.
Why choose Carlson rivet feeding systems?
Because we engineer our automatic rivet feeding systems to streamline production processes by increasing production volume while decreasing overhead.
Our automatic rivet feeding systems are designed to be error-proof.
Because you don't have time to sit around and wait for jams to be fixed.
With our years of experience in engineering custom rivet feeding system solutions for manufacturers across a wide range of industries, we have developed a simple, 3-step process that virtually eliminates rivet jams along the escapement track – meaning your assembly process doesn’t have to get slowed down.
Step 1: Sorting Air Jet
The first step in our 3-step fastener verification is our Non-Adjustable Sorting Air jet – a highly pressurized stream of air that ejects misaligned rivets from the track - our first line of defense.
Step 2: Qualifying Track Cover:
The second step is a Non-Adjustable Bowl Track Qualifying Cover, which prevents misaligned rivets from passing underneath its clearance and moving down the escapement track in the first place.
Step 3: Optic Sensor
When the optic sensor notices that the escapement is full of rivets, the step feeder's rivet elevator will stop lifting rivets to the track. This prevents back pressure and jams in the feeder tray.
