Mechanical Joining - Joint Systems

Crimping/Staking Equipment & Systems

This single station machine performs crimp joints to wrap the material flanges around the perimeter of the part. This machine also performs a secondary staking operation.
 

Condenser tube and bracket assemblies are crimped into position in this station.


This hinge pin staking press utilized a four station dial table as well as bowl feeding equipment to assemble parts for an appliance customer.
 

 

Riveting

The machine above incorporated a gantry style design which was integrated with the customer's existing production line. This machine also incorporated a bowl feeder to supply rivets to the orbital riveting station to attach the mullion section to refrigerator cabinets.

 

Swage Joining / Swaging Equipment

This 30 ton swage machine pressed sleeves around journal assemblies while submerged in ethylene glycol to make automotive parts.

Tog-L-Loc

MLS Systems retrofitted a refrigerator cabinet line where weld joints were replaced with BTM lance joints. As with many retrofit projects that MLS Systems performs, this retrofit was performed over a holiday shut down when production had stopped. The components were thoroughly tested on our floor then shipped and installed on the main production line at the customer's facility.
 

The machine above incorporated a four station dial table where automotive components were manually loaded and staked into place. MLS Systems has built many machines which utilize custom metal joining operations such as staking.
 

 

TOX Joints

MLS Systems has designed many machines which incorporate metal clinching like the machine above which performs Tox joints to oven cook tops. This machine operated at a 9 second cycle time and performed approximately 12 Tox joints to the cook tops attaching stiffening brackets to the corners and underneath side.

MLS Systems has designed many machines which incorporate metal clinching like the machine above which performs Tox joints to vent assemblies. This machine operated at a 8.5 second cycle time and performs approximately 18 Tox joints to the vent assemblies.
