Orbitform’s NEW Servo Riveters “Closed Loop” Torque Check While Riveting


Orbitform’s new Servo-Driven orbital riveter

Orbitform validated the feasibility using its Servo-Driven riveter to form the joint and check joint torque during the machine cycle. The machine sequence included orbital forming then checking torque in fixture; executing this sequence until the joint was within the acceptable torque range.

This “closed loop” riveting/torque check operation was a significant savings to the supplier related to capital investment, floor space, throughput, and consistent quality
