O-ring Assembly Placement equipment

Automated seal /o-ring assembly for large and heavy-duty O ring placement applications. Spread and place seals with this new through hole dual motion automatic o-ring placement assembly machine. These multi motion through-hole parallel grippers are designed to facilitate part ejection and part seating. The new grippers are ideal when an ejector is needed after part placement or when seal is to be placed down a long shaft.

Spread and place seals with this new through hole dual motion automatic o-ring placement assembly machine. These multi motion through-hole parallel grippers are designed to facilitate part ejection and part seating. The new grippers are ideal when an ejector is needed after part placement or when seal is to be placed down a long shaft.

Sixteen jaw o-ring installation gripper has independent spreading, ejector movements and has a 1.5 inch diameter through hole. This pneumatic gripper has two independent pistons, the spreading jaws are double acting and the other ejector jaws are single acting. When air pressure is applied to the first piston, eight parallel jaws expanding .55 inch each spread the o-ring providing an octagon shape. The octagonally stretched O-ring requires less overall expansion and considerably less deformation during assembly insertion process. The opening stroke can be precisely adjusted using the set -screw so there isn’t over expansion. After the o-ring is expanded and over the part, air pressure is applied to the second piston. This causes the ejector jaws to push forward .5 inch and push off the O-Ring seal from the spreading jaws, and onto the part being assembled or installed. The O-Ring gripper (AGP-8-OR) can be tooled to accommodate all types of rings, the smallest would be the smallest you can make your tooling jaws to fit the inside diameter and the largest is approximately twelve inch diameter depending on the cross section. End of stroke sensing is available for both the spreading and ejecting jaws. The size of the units is 5 inches diameter by 5 inches tall. Spreading jaws have 200 lbs. force per jaw @80 psi and ejector jaws have 320 lbs. @ 80 psi. A smaller unit AGP-6-OR is also available in stock.

Two and 3D cad available on our web site. www.agi-automation.com

Some of the most important features of the AGP-8-OR:

  • This unit has a through hole design, so a product can be past through the gripper and the o-ring can be placed anywhere on a long part.
  • The expander jaws travel in the t - slot bearing guides to provide exceptional resistance to all moment loads.
  • A large piston provides strong expansion force to expand large cross section O-ring and hard durometer materials.
  • Rapid cycle times. Semi & fully automatic seal placement.
  • Incorporate in full assembly systems or stand alone work- stations.
  • Capable of inserting from .5" – 12" I.D. Size O-rings.

Pneumatic Parallel Gripper

AGI a leader in motion control technology, introduces the latest technological advancement in pneumatic parallel grippers.

AGW parallel pneumatic grippers provide secure gripping of large and wide parts. Now available from three quarter inch, one, two, four and six-inch stokes. This Versatile wide body gripper has a wide range sizes and gripping forces for most any industrial application. Grippers range from 50 lbs. to units that have 150lbs. of gripping force. This unit is ideal for machining or dirty environments because of its sealed design that repels chips and contaminates from its internal mechanism. Each jaw is supported by two full shafts through the length of the body allowing for heavy loads, long tooling jaws and have large tool surfaces for ease of tooling attachment. This unit is available in synchronous or non-synchronous for independent jaw motion for non-centering applications. The grippers are rack and pinion design to synchronize each jaw. The long stroke capability of this gripper combined with its heavy duty jaw guides provide a very robust gripping package.

The Gripper is available in four bore sizes and six strokes 0.75", 1.00", 2.00",2.50" 4.00"and 6.00" jaw travels available, which provide superb adaptability to meet a variety of applications. All bodies feature dowel pin holes for accurate gripper mounting alignment. Optional inductive proximity switches are available for indication of jaw position and simple interfacing with electronic system controls. A choice of metric or imperial mounting holes, dowel pin holes, and air-ports are provided.

AGI supplies a complete range of sophisticated automation products that include, Pneumatic parallel and angular grippers, rotary actuators, thrusters, linear actuator slides, mini slides, tool changers, overload devices. Available in imperial and metric versions for flexibility of design for a world market. These products are used in various industries such as, Aerospace, Automotive, Appliance, Electronic, Medical, and Packaging. These units are also offer MRO drop-in replacement opportunity.

Pneumatic Rotary Actuator

AGR Pneumatic Rotary Actuators features are zero backlash rack and pinion design include high torque from a compact configuration due to the cross-porting of the drive pistons. The ultra-thin pneumatic rotary actuators have a dowel pin embedded in the body and two internal hard stops in the output flange that eliminate pinion breakage. This allows for higher cycle speeds and heavier payloads than comparable units on the market. Because of their constant torque output and resistance to drift, they are often used for precision part placement. Options include: Two and four port rotary manifolds and mid position stops. Available in five sizes with torque outputs of 5, 17, 50, 100 and 250 in-lbs @ 80 psi. Standard units have a pivot arc of 90 or 180 degree with adjustable hard stops.

Pneumatic Linear Actuator

Pneumatic Linear actuator slides provide smooth and accurate positioning.

.

AGI a leader in motion control technology, introduces the latest technological advancement in pneumatic linear actuators.

AGI released two additional sizes for the AGS Series Slide. Originally offered a .750 inch bore size, the AGS Series Slide is now also available in bore sizes of .750, 1.00 and 1.250 inches. All three sizes offer a choice of 1-inch increments to 6-inch maximum travel lengths to fit a wide range of applications.

AGI pneumatic linear base slides have an integral pneumatic cylinder and high-precision recirculating closed ball bearings. The end stops are hardened, adjustable, and hydraulic dampers are used at the end of travel to decelerate the carriage. The aluminum body and end blocks feature threaded mounting holes and precision holes for accepting locating dowels. The end blocks are bolted onto the shafts to keep them from moving making this makes a ridged precision slide and repeatability is an impressive 0.01-inch. The AGS slides can be ordered with linear ball bearings or Polycarbonate composite bearings that are also available; end positions are adjustable and may be sensed using Proximity sensors to signal the end positions. The AGS Series Slide is available in imperial and metric versions and offer standard 2-day delivery.
