STANLEY Engineered Fastening High Speed SPR Spindle
This new high speed spindle for our Self-Piercing Rivet (SPR) system was first deployed at a significant luxury vehicle manufacturer in Europe, resulting in a cycle time reduction of 700 milliseconds/cycle which equates to 100 more cars a day, 650 a week and 28,000 a year. We are now deploying this innovation to our customer base around the world. We became #1 in new SPR systems sales globally in 2017, supported by this core innovation and the Giessen operations teams’ seamless execution and on time delivery.
The video below demonstrates the improvement in cycle time by showing the new high speed spindle on the left and the old spindle on the right.
