ITC N-Series Nutplate Installation Machine

ITC N-Series Nutplate Instillation Machine

Model ITC-N-12-36-C-Series Dril and Rivet Machine

This automatic machine was designed and built by Townend Aerospace Tool Company Division to automatically install nut plates or dome nuts. The machine will drill and countersink the two nut plate mounting holes, install the nut plate and upset the fasteners. The machine can also be supplied with a second drill spindle for drilling the nut plate center hole.

A simple change of tooling will permit the machine to operate as a standard drill and rivet machine.

The machine can be ordered in a two-position head or a three-position head if sealant dispensing is needed. Throat depths from 36 inches up to 120 inches are available and upset forces from 12,000 to 20,000 pounds can be provided.
