The Clip Installation Machine Features You Need
The key to successful clip installation is our innovative installation head and press platen design. AMS engineers each clip installation head specifically for each style of clip. Our clip installation heads feature:
Magnetic (not mechanical) retention of the clip
Exceptional ease of loading for operator
Adjustability in the X, Y and Z directions
sensors to confirm clip presence before cycling
The Dependable, Field-Tested Choice
There’s a good reason AMS systems are integrated into assembly lines throughout North America. Clip installation is one of our core competencies. We’ve honed our craft in this application for years. You can count on our in-depth expertise in building semi-automated equipment for installing door panel clips onto automotive interior plastic door panels, bezels, quarter panels, knee bolsters, pillars and other interior trim components.
We know you have to produce day in and day out, so we design clip installation machines for maximum efficiency. We include programmable fiber optic sensors that relay information to the operator, effortless magnetic clip load design and head adjustability.
Lighted annunciator panels relay information to the operator in an easy-to-read format. Sensors allow the machine to cycle only when all clips have been loaded. Other technology can be incorporated into clip machines, including component sensing, function testing, ultrasonic welding, bar code scanning and color matching. Pass-through style machine design enables one or two operators to run parts on the same machine. With all these features, you can take your clip installation to the next level.
