System Detects Incorrect Fastener Lengths
Haeger's new Fastener Length Detection system provides verification of the length of self-clinching studs and standoffs during the insertion process. The system, which is available as an option on Haeger's WindowTouch and OneTouch Insertion Machines, prevents the insertion of an incorrect length fastener into the part. The system can detect length variations as little as 1.0 mm from the correct fastener length - studs and standoffs normally increase in 2.0 mm increments.
It requires no sensors, tools or adjustments and works in conjunction with Haeger's patented safety system and its InsertionLogic machine control software. The system is compatible with Haeger's shuttle style tooling for studs and standoffs. Haeger includes the system in a Quality Assurance Package which also includes Fastener Presence Detection.
