Compression Limiter Installation Product Listing

Model CM Manual Compression Limiter Installation Machine

This exceptionally versatile tool for post-mould assemblies is ideally suited to all levels of production: from a single unit for prototype assembly, to multiple units on an assembly line. The SPIROL® Model CM Manual Compression Limiter Installation Machine easily accommodates quick change-overs by simply:

  1. Replacing the fixture
  2. Swapping insertion punch/pusher tip
  3. Adjusting the positive stop for new install height.

The use of high quality shafting and bearings results in smooth operation, precise positioning, repeatability, and durability.The Model CM Manual Compression Limiter Installation Machine installs Compression Limiters ranging in diameter from M3 to M10 metric and #4 to 3/8" unified, and has a maximum insertion force of 0.9kN (200 lbs).

Model CM

Model CP Pneumatic Compression Limiter Installation Machine

An accurate and consistent method to install virtually any Compression Limiter into plastic applications requiring up to 4.5kN (1000 lbs). Install just one Compression Limiter into one assembly, or several Limiters across multiple assemblies simultaneously for increased productivity. The Model CP’s quick-change tooling creates the flexibility to adapt the platform to a variety of products within seconds. The Model CP has a 230mm x 280mm (9”x11”) work area and is built on a rigid steel frame with high-precision shafting and linear bearings resulting in smooth operation, precise positioning, repeatability, and durability.  

The Model CP is available with optional enhancement features for error-proofing and maximum efficiency.

Model CP

Model CL Compression Limiter Installation Machine

This robust, vertical installation machine is specifically designed to install Compression Limiters into a variety of plastic components. The machine is available in two models: the CL1000 is capable of 4.4 kN (or 1,000 lbs.) of installation force and the CL2000 is capable of 8.8 kN (or 2,000 lbs.) of installation force, and is available with multiple installation tips in nearly any configuration at various elevations. The incorporation of a touchscreen operator interface machines makes our machines easy to use and customisable. Language conversion is easily executed to support international use. The Model CL is equipped with installation verification to ensure that the machine has completed a full installation cycle and a Compression Limiter was installed at each location.  This highly flexible platen style machine with 228mm x 279mm (9" x 11") working area.

The Model CL is available with optional enhancement features for error-proofing and maximum efficiency.

Model CL

Model CLX Compression Limiter Installation Machine

The Model CLX operates the same way as the Model CL, yet this extra-large Compression Limiter Installation Machine is custom-designed to accommodate larger assemblies outside the standard footprint of the Model CL.

Equipped with a powered fixture slide, the working area of the Model CLX is customised to meet specific application requirements.  

The Model CLX is also available with optional enhancements for enhanced productivity, heightened process control and error-proofing.
