AO-720 Drop Tube


Combines the placing and pressing operation into one motion. This model is equipped with a heavy steel “C”-shaped frame construction with an air-oil intensifier cylinder, A vibratory feed system, a non-metallic feed tube, interlocking controls, and a shuttle type parts escapement. The escapement inserts one piecepart at a time into the pressing head’s placement jaws. When the piecepart is properly placed into the workpiece, the high pressure hydraulic stroke is actuated to complete the pressing cycle. A built-in sensor indicates the proper insertion of the piecepart. The baseplate size is determined by the size of the bowl feeder.
