Feed Module (DFM)

DEPRAG Feed Module (DFM) – for special assembly tasks!

Intended for use with an appropriate choice of feeding technology, the DEPRAG Feed Module (DFM) employs vacuum assistance to enable fasteners to be driven at hard-to-reach screw joints (e.g., round housing forms).

Screws or nuts can be positioned mechanically and are secured via vacuum suction. The operator can therefore access even hard-to-reach screw positions with little difficulty. Independent of the operator, the integrated stroke-mechanics uses cylinders to control the precise application pressure required for the fastener.

DEPRAG's DFM represents an ideal solution for the following:

  • recessed screw positions
  • nut assemblies
  • when pressure control is required (to prevent damage to parts)

As an option, a rotating hand grip is available for components which require differing jaw-openings at the nosepiece.

An LED status display (red/green) on the hand grip provides direct status feedback in the operator's line-of-sight.

A clamping cartridge for all DEPRAG stands and gantries ensures ease of operation without annoying pressure reaction force.

Programmable pressure control is available for screwdriving tasks with differing pressure requirements during a single assembly task.

The DEPRAG Feed Module can be combined with an EC-Servo, MINIMAT-EC, or pneumatic screwdriver with mechanical shut-off clutch, a DEPRAG feeding system, linear stand, position control stand, linear gantry, and position control gantry.
