How SpinnOmatic Works

Pressure and Orbital Motion
The tool, held at a slight angle varying between 3° and 6° is brought to bear on the part.  As the tool moves in an orbital path, a minute quantity of material (metal or plastic) is displaced with each rotation of the forming head until forming is complete.  The actual forming tool (peen) does not spin, so problems with heat associated with friction are never a problem.  The SpinnOmatic orbital forming machinery method forms a wide variety of metallic, non-metallic and plastic.   The process is noiseless.  The combination of pressure and motion form parts.

Peens

Conical?  Flat?  Flaring  Crown"
The team at eci SpinnOmatic™ can help design custom or match your desired rivet shape to your applicatios.




SpinnOmatic Forming Heads

By changing the design of the forming tool (the peen), it is possible to change the shape of the finished head of the rivet. The table above shows some of the typical headforms, but our experienced staff in our development lab can design custom peens for any type of application.

Testing?  Questions?
Send us your part print or come vist our lab to find the right peen for your next project.

Modular Design

Our SpinnOmatic line of orbital fasteners are completely modular and can be used stand-alone or fitted on an automatic machine.  Figure A shows the table mounted version for stand-alone operation.  :Some of our larger SpinnOmatic fasteners are available in a pedestal mounted verson (Figure B) to deal with the higher forces used in the process.  And Figure C shows the modular SpinnOmatic head.  The modular head can be mounted to a column in and automated machine or assembly line.
