Systen Overview

The following quotation is for a number of Robo-Rivet systems for the automated drilling of holes and feed and placement of structural blind fasteners. The system will include customization for fastener type and various options.
As a part of this quote, ARM will build, supply and support the tool package under the terms of the equipment warranty provided for herein.
Each tool is capable of drilling and placement of a blind fastener approximately every 8-10 seconds, but additional process time for deep holes, inspection, chip collection, etc. can add to this cycle. Robot motions, tool changing and rovot handshake protocol may also require additional cycle time.

02. ROBO-RIVET_특징 및 장점

03. ROBO-RIVET_Advantages-1

Ability to join dissimilar

  • · Aluminum / Steel
  • · Aluminum / Carbon Fiber
  • · Aluminum / Polymer

Holes are drilled in lieu of

  • · Material is mechanically removed
  • · Prevents fractures in castings due to material grain structural deformation

Matched Drilling

  • · Holes are accurately aligned
  • · Prevents sheet creep

High clamping force with a
"pull up" motion

  • · Large clamping area = less fasteners
  • · The fastening process pulls the parts together

Drill and rivet process are performed on one side of the part

  • · Eliminates the need for a backing mandrel
  • · Creates additional degrees of freedom for within the work cell

The fastening process will not "boil-off" adhesive

  • · The drilling process does not plasticize the material (melt through friction), as required with some self-piercing fasteners

The blind side of the rivet is

  • · Absence of sharp edges that are present from with some self-piecing fasteners
  • · Prevents injuries to factory and maintenance/repair personnel

Fastening flexibility

  • · Fixture parts for the curing of joining adhesive
  • · Solely used as a structural fastener
