Double head riveter

Special purpose riveting line for folding carts by Philips.

This special purpose project was made as a small production line for riveting different parts of a Philips folding cart. The project consisted of three different riveting machines which were able to perform different production steps.

These folding carts consist of a folding frame with 3 wheels. Philips once designed these folding carts to temporarily support a flat car tyre in order to reach a tyre service centre.

Each machine consists of a compact rigid frame to support 2 Baltec Radial riveting heads. A special mould is placed between the two heads to fixate and support different parts, depending on the production step. These machines are able to double the throughput of the production line, even in small or medium runs (Calculate R.O.I.).

Production process

3 special purpose riveting machines are used to assemble the entire philips folding cart:

  1. Two parts of the folding frame are riveted in 1 cycle. The mould in this machine is used to support the inside of the frame during riveting.
  2. The rear wheels are fixated into the mould by a clicking system. The wheels are mounted on the frame simultaneous riveting.
  3. The last wheel is mounted on the front of the frame using the same principal as the second machine.
