Robotic Installation of Self Retaining Expansion Nuts
Flexible Automation, Inc. Posted 03/01/2016
The SREN Setter MX is a machine or robot mounted device designed to automatically install CIP / Tinnerman style self-retention expansion nuts (SRENs) into instrument mid-panels and other structures. The system uses a vibratory feeder and blow-feed escapement to send nuts out to the installation head. Sensors are included to confirm proper nut placement. Several models are available, which vary by the tool nose length.
