The Insert Clip Machine (ICM), with its improved system for inserting blind attachments, is designed to insert clips and cut weather-strip lengths with an unprecedented precision. Moved by a pair of servo-pullers, the seal is fed into the entrance system and follows a guided course. A linear servo-drive drill makes the hole in the seal, and as the seal is moved by the servo-pullers, the first hole lines up in position to have a blind attachment inserted by an improved insertion tool. At the same time that the blind attachment is inserted, a second hole is made in the seal by the servo-drill, which has moved to the appropriate location.
We are the first company worldwide to have decreased clip insertion time to below 0.5 seconds, and we have reached a new level of flexibility, even with an extruded profile that goes from one extreme tolerance to the other within a few meters, with or without coating. The Insert Clip Machine has no more secrets for our team.
Milan Conception designed in 2008 the High Speed Insert Clip Machine with the goal of improving production performances. Fast, tough, and reliable, this machine has the proven elements for success. The machine can achieve a rate of 0.3 seconds/clip.
Our technology allows our customers more latitude when it comes to extrusion variation. Our machine accepts variation in the geometry of the extrusion, even with a profile that goes from one extreme tolerance to the other within a few meters.
Milan Conception has had no service-related issues on any of its products. We are easy to work with, and Milan Conception always finds a solution to your needs.
You want to run another program with the same clips? By changing or adding a couple of guides, the profile-specific puller, and the recipes, our machine concept allows you to run an almost infinite number of cross sections in a matter of minutes.
Milan Conception gives you very tight tolerances on clip-to-clip and clip-to-end, thanks to a unique algorithm designed via a high precision camera that automatically corrects the total length of the part and therefore the scale factor of each clip pitch. This system works like the cruise control on a car.
Many options are at your disposal to upgrade the Insert Clip Machine:
- Optional universal turntable to avoid twisting of coiled profile;
- Optional automated loading system for precut material;
- High speed output vibrating bowl for our high speed machine;
- Second bowl available for a different clip colour or a different clip geometry;
- Dual ejection conveyor with high resolution end sensing via camera;
- Interchangeable, profile-specific puller for various shapes;
- Improper insertion of clips ½ and ¾, as well as colour, detected via camera;
- Automatic scaling of profile variation;
