Arc chute staking

Staking of an entire arc chute for commercial and residental circuit breakers can be accomplished with appropriate tooling.

Crimp small solenoid assembly, both ends

The housing of a solenoid assembly is crimped simultaneously on both ends. The crimping tool on one side needs to clear a flange that has a larger OD than the body diameter of the housing.

Door lock latch assembly

The plastic insert is secured inside a metal stamping, a component of a door lock slide. All tabs were formed simultaneously.

Crimp terminal to battery cable

Crimping of small and large terminals onto wire. A variety of tooling can be used for this application, depending on the terminal configuration.

Crimp fittings to automotive hose

For assembly of automotive coolant / heating hoses, the fitting needs to be crimped to the hose end. Depending on fitting design, a variety of split die tooling can be offered.

 

Stake or rivet sprinkler head

Depending on the sprinkler head design, riveting or crimping is applied in the assembly process.

Crimp connector on coax cable

Coax cables need to be crimped inside the connector. Round, square or hexagon crimps typically are possible.

Tank fuel level float

Squeezing the end of a wire can be a simple way to retain a component. In this case, the float of a fuel level sensor is secured to a wire.

Stake wire to tank level float

Squeezing the end of a wire can be a simple way to retain a component. In this case, the float of a fuel level sensor is secured to a wire.

Staking window lifter motor assembly

Window lifter assemblies require a variety of press operations. Typically a cover is staked to the main body of the window lifter motor.

 

Stake belt guide to timing pulley

Both belt guide rings of a timing pulley can be staked simultaneously. Force typically is monitored to ensure proper staking. Additionally, Poka Yoke is applied to prevent staking incomplete assemblies.

Crimp small motor housing

End shield / motor end caps are staked to the motor housing. This operation can take place in the same cycle, following pressing of bearings.

Stake alternator housing to retain bearing

Pressing a bearing, seal or other components may be followed by a staking operation in order to secure the pressed component in place. With the appropriate tooling design, the press and staking operation can be completed in the same cycle.

Coax cable connector crimping

Coax cables need to be crimped inside the connector. Round, square or hexagon crimps typically are possible.

Seat belt retractions cage

Two cross bars are staked to the seat belt retraction stamping. A total of eight tabs are formed in one operation.

 

Bearing cage and retainer

The cage or retainer typically needs to be formed or staked as part of the bearing assembly process. This critical and precise operation is ideal for the Schmidt Technology Toggle Press.

Crimping fitting on cable loops

Wires and cables need to be crimped inside a sleeve or retainer. Round, square or hexagon crimps typically are possible.

Partial shaft stake

Staking of a shaft or pin can be done in a variety of configurations in order to control the deformation and achieve the required retention at the same time.

Door lock assembly

A residential door lock assembly is staked to secure all internal workings. Multiple stakes take place in one operation. Typically ring or cross stakes are applied to minimize the required force.
