Our basic auto loading system mounted on a Hoffman HA 15 (Shown right)
This machine is set up to shave the heads of small rivets. The 1.500” long rivet has a head to be shaved that is about 0.100” in diameter and 0.200" long. The complete cycle time for load, shaving the head, and ejecting is under 5 seconds.

Notice the part reversing block in mid travel. By removing one screw from this block and inserting it into a second hole, this block can orient the head of the part towards the spindle or with the head away from the spindle so the shank is gripped

This system mounts to existing Traub mounting surfaces so it can be customer mounted in the field.
Traub loading system with second bowl and track to assemble a rivet (Right)
This machine is set up to feed the sleeve of a rivet from the right hand side and present the sleeve in front of the spindle. Our basic Traub loader orients and feeds the stem of the rivet through the waiting sleeve and into the open spindle. The stem is gripped by the collet, the loaders get out of the way and a roller rolls the sleeve onto the stem. The finished assembly is then traditionally ejected.

Note that all necessary adjustments on this system use standard Traub square head bolts so all machine set up can be accomplished with one wrench
