    for threaded inserts


The Tappex FlexiArm installation machine consists of a pantograph arm with a Desoutter pneumatic screwdriver attached. The screwdriver can be specified with an automatic reverse torque-clutch control at either 510 rpm or 1,100rpm, or a manual reverse torque-clutch control at 510 rpm, depending upon the size of the insert and the material into which it is being installed.

The FlexiArm provides a low-cost assembly solution for many different post-mould applications and its size allows it to be installed alongside the respective moulding machine, so that inserts can be fitted during the waiting time of a typical mould cycle. It is available with one, two or three arms (which can be fitted at a later date) to suit most multi-task assembly requirements.
