MACJOIN

The MACJoin is a professional grade, skid mounted assembly platform, designed for automating mechanical joining processes such as riveting (orbital, blind, self-piercing, etc.), inserting rivet nuts and clinching.  Three platform sizes, a variety of robot sizes and bolt on modules can be selected to handle a wide range of part sizes and types.  Additionally, because assembly processes normally have machine tending and material handling processes associated with them, the MACJoin is designed to accommodate these processes as well.

The MACJoin is an excellent solution for automating your mechanical joining process if you are looking for a flexible, professional grade, pre-engineered solution that meets today’s complex safety requirements.
