An automatic screw locking machine has many advantages to offer. For example, these units can be quite effective when it comes to stability, value, and efficiency. Therefore, most companies tend to make these units part of their assembly lines. Therefore, they enjoy a high degree of productivity and efficiency. But the important thing to note is that this machine cannot handle all kinds of screws. Let’s take a look at the requirements of these machines.
What kinds of screws cannot be used?
The choice of screws depends on the type of screw head. Common types include corrugated, self-tapping, headless, round cap, hex, flat cap, flat head, and internal hex, just to name a few.
The size of the round screw is between M2 and M10. These basic types are commonly used in today’s machines. On the other hand, those with external hex screws depend on the type of machine. Therefore, it is important for companies to consider requirements and schemas first.
If you opt for the normal M1.2 and M4, there will be no problem in choosing the machine and there will be no risk of damage to the machine either. Other than this, flat top, flat head or headless ones are not designed for these devices as compressed air can damage the screw. It can also damage the machine itself.
Another category includes bolts with gaskets. Normally, automatic screw locking machines do not accept body washer screws or any other rotary type screws. Therefore, they can be used on other machines without any problem.
Basically it is a good idea to check the specifications and schematics of the machine as the regular screws will need to be modified to make sure they can fit inside the machine. The good news is that you will get customer support and guidance from the machine builder.
If you have to make changes to place the screws, you can contact the company and they will send you an expert technician to make the necessary adjustments. Therefore, all you need to do is call or email the company and they will take care of the matter.
You should also consider some quality aspects. This is to ensure that the quality of the screws is up to par. Also, you need to ensure the safety features such as frontal batch, migraine, and volume as well.
If the screws comply with these aspects, you can be sure that the quality is up to par. And this is an indicator that the machine will continue to work and will not suffer any damage during the process. Likewise, no damage will be done to the assembly line either.
Manufacturers of automated screw locking units develop safety measures to ensure that machines will stand the test of time. So it always makes sense to get the best possible machine.
So these are just some of the requirements for using an automated screw locking machine. I hope this helps.
