M1500™ Micro Fastener System

THE BEST WAY TO INSTALL MICRO FASTENERS™

 

Avoid cost and save precious design space by using the M1500™ Micro Fastener System to automatically insert micro rivets, TackPins™ and micro fasteners, alternatives to screws and spot welds, into plastic, aluminum, and magnesium. The machine features a custom micro fastener handling and loading system, a servo-controlled press with insertion pressure feedback, and SplitVis™ technology to assist in placement of the pins in the product, allowing for variable distances or thicknesses. The M1500™ has a throughput as fast as 1.5 seconds per insertion with an accuracy of +/- 50 microns. DWFritz has accurately inserted more than 1 billion micro rivets worldwide.
 

The system is used for assembly of small electronic devices ranging from the size of a standard cell phone to a 15-inch laptop computer. The use of micro fasteners offers many advantages over traditional attachment methods, including a significantly lower unit cost, better speed and accuracy, and less scrap created from error. Machine pricing starts as low as $80,000 USD.
