What exactly means mounted in „one-process“?
We talk about „one process“ mounted parts when all production steps are done in one process/tool. Mounted parts fall off the machine fully assembled or threading processes are fully integrated in one tool. That eliminates follow on processes and the assemblies can be manufactured very economically.
Fully manufactured in one process – forming, bending and mounting of the scew with one tool
How are the parts applied to the process?
For the production of mounted parts we developed various feeding devices. Screws, punched-nuts, -rivets or plastic parts can be fed to the production process and be assembled to the formed- /bended part in the tool. The concept and implementation is done in our in-house tool shop. Depending on the specification and geometry of the parts we will decide which machine concept will be best (Bihler/Bruderer).
