The Insert Clip Machine (ICM), with its improved system for inserting blind (canoe type) attachments, is designed to insert clips and cut weather-strip lengths with an unprecedented precision. Moved by a pair of servo-pullers, the seal is fed into the entrance system and follows a guided course. A linear servo-drive drill makes the hole in the seal, and as the seal is moved by the servo-pullers, the first hole lines up in position to have a blind attachment inserted by an improved insertion tool. At the same time that the blind attachment is inserted, a second hole is made in the seal by the servo-drill, which has moved to the appropriate location.
We are the first company worldwide to have decreased clip insertion time to below 0.5 seconds, and we have reached a new level of flexibility, even with an extruded profile that goes from one extreme tolerance to the other within a few meters, with or without coating. The Insert Clip Machine has no more secrets for our team.
