Using pneumatic cylinders in rivet, hole punch & broaching applications

Sponsored by Fabco-Air

The application we examine in this white paper requires 4800 lbs of force for upsetting a rivet holding a stack of laminations together. Force-multiplying air cylinders from Fabco-Air will provide the high force necessary. Concepts include:
• Determining force requirements
• Maintaining exact, repeatable forces
• Controlling speed & shock when punching holes
• Effective air circuitry considerations.
