A further challenge was process monitoring of the setting operation in a blind bore. The normal setting procedure is not possible in such conditions, because the rivet cannot form a closure head. Following considerable deliberation, the GESIPA® project team turned to the TAURUS® C range for inspiration; a system which has been tried and trusted across numerous branches of industry for over fourteen years now. It became obvious that this offered a reliable, economical answer to an application where a fully-automated system could not yet pay for itself with the quantities called for.
Thanks to the fixture supplied by GESIPA®, the necessary high quality standard demanded by the customer could be guaranteed. Indeed so happy was the customer with the output rate and quality from the pilot plant that meanwhile a further seven similar units have been installed in the plant concerned.
