Riveting Machine CAP 166
The CAP 166 is an hydraulic riveting and punching machine with fixed geometry. Powerful, strong and reliable, it has been designed to reduce scraps during production to the minimum.

Riveting and punching are made using “PZ” and “BF” technology. The process is as follows: pre-piercing of the pot body with the multi-hole punching machine and then, handles are riveted with a multi-rivet riveting machine. The riveting machine feeds rivets right from the beginning of the cycle, in that way the operator can position easily and intutively pot and handle with rivets being already in the holes. The CAP 166 is ideal for all products in alluminium, steel and multi-layer, especially the ones having / needing 3 rivets, of medium and high quality. Work cycle is managed by a PLC that is capable of controlling all machine functions and synchronisms.

Many optionals are available for the CAP 166, including: bi-manual push-buttons to start the working cycle, optical barriers and support for pots and handles in order to allow riveting even without an operator.

CAP 12 is supplied with “CE” mark (European Machinery Regulation 2006/46/CE and subsequent modifications).
