SPIROL is pleased to announce the release of a new line of standard installation equipment specifically designed to post-mold install Compression Limiters into plastic assemblies. Available in two models, the CL1000 (1,000 lbs. maximum installation force) and the CL2000 (2.000 lbs. maximum installation force), the Model CL Compression Limiter Installation Machine can install a single Compression Limiter or multiple Compressions Limiters simultaneously into a variety of polymers, thermoplastics, and thermosets. The Compression Limiters may vary in size, configuration and installation elevations.

The Model CL Compression Limiter Installation Machine comes standard with full perimeter guarding, light curtain and hands clear activation to keep operators safe. The use of sensors to verify proper installation of the Compression Limiter(s) ensures a quality installation. The touchscreen operator interface makes the Model CL easy to customize and operate, and the conversion to other languages is easily executed to support international use.

The Model CL can be used as a stand-alone module, or can be integrated into a larger, fully automated cell. SPIROL’s Compression Limiter Installation Machines are versatile solutions that can be retooled to accommodate changing part configurations.

In sync with SPIROL’s standardization philosophy, the design incorporates standardized machine components to reduce lead time, improve reliability, and reduce costs.

In addition to installation equipment, SPIROL also manufactures a comprehensive line of standard post-mold Compression Limiters to accommodate a variety of compressive loads and positional tolerances:

  • Roll Formed – includes series CL200 and CL350 split seam and the CL400 oval press-in designs.
  • Machined – includes series CL6000 aluminum, CL6100 headed aluminum, CL8000 brass and CL8100 headed brass designs.
