Gesipa launches setting pistol variants for blind riveting systems

25 April 2012

For more than 40 years Gesipa has provided reliable automatic feed, blind riveting systems. Now, the GAV 8000 'eco' and 'electronic' add advanced process control capabilities to the company's proven GAV system. Features include: intuitive menu guidance via navigation and function keys; screen operated setting of all operating parameters, a separate maintenance screen and easy troubleshooting.

The GAV 8000

GAV 8000 is easily integrated into fully automated production lines, providing as much as 50 percent time and cost savings compared with conventional blind riveting tools, thanks to a setting speed of up to 40 blind rivets per minute.

The latest accessories for GAV 8000 eco and GAV 8000 electronic are the three Setting pistol variants, to be used in different setting operations. All GAV versions can be equipped with three different versions of setting pistols to suit the workstation requirements and for best access to the rivet locations.

A standard pistol is predominantly used for manual operations and can be used likewise for both vertical and horizontal blind rivet setting. The available overhead pistol is used when the contact between the hose assembly and sensitive surfaces should be avoided. For manually operated workstations, either overhead pistols with overhead hose assembly or standard pistol with floor-mounted hose assembly can be used. Both versions can be hung on a balancer, thus providing fatigue free working.

The GAV is usable as part of a complete production system or in a stand-alone configuration. The system can be quickly and easily adapted as manufacturing operations change.

Gesipa’s fully automatic blind riveting units can be tailored to specific production requirements. All factors, including workstation layout, production type, application, securing of reproducible and safe working processes, adaptation to the industrial environment as well as process documentation can be realised using combinations of different pistol versions, lengths of tubing, special accessories for different rivet dimensions and production requirements.
