Compression Limiter Installation

March 20, 2018
SPIROL's installation machine for compression limiters offers single or multiple part installation.

A line of standard installation equipment specifically designed to post-mold install Compression Limiters into plastic assemblies is available in two models, the CL1000 (1,000 lb. maximum installation force) and the CL2000 (2,000 lb. maximum installation force). Model CL Compression Limiter Installation Machine can install a single Compression Limiter or multiple Compressions Limiters simultaneously into a variety of polymers, thermoplastics, and thermosets. The Compression Limiters may vary in size, configuration, and installation elevations.


The machine comes standard with full perimeter guarding, light curtain, and hands clear activation to keep operators safe. The use of sensors to verify proper installation of the Compression Limiters ensures a quality installation. The touchscreen operator interface makes the Model CL easy to customize and operate, and the conversion to other languages is easily executed to support international use.


The Model CL can be used as a stand-alone module, or can be integrated into a larger, fully automated cell. SPIROL’s Compression Limiter Installation Machines are versatile solutions that can be retooled to accommodate changing part configurations.


In sync with SPIROL’s standardization philosophy, the design incorporates standardized machine components to reduce lead time, improve reliability, and reduce costs.
