Our Mission

To provide several presses to stake studs into automotive brake drums. The application was complicated because of different diameter rotors with varying numbers of studs. A single press will be tasked to stake studs into two different diameter drums, each requiring a different number of studs.
 

Our Solution

Neff designed a press that integrates a special, servo-driven indexing unit capable of stopping at up to 360 stations. This is ideal for our customer’s application as we programmed the appropriate number of stops to fit each different brake drum. Our customer simply chooses the appropriate program with a thumbwheel input and the press is pre-programmed for the number of studs to be staked into the particular brake drum.
 
In order to handle the different diameters of brake drums, the indexing unit is adjusted in or out with a crank handle (this manual process can be automated). Our customer cranks the unit in or out to match the particular drum diameter with a scale present to assist in positioning the index unit based upon the part diameter.
