3 step fastener verification:

Superior Fastener Feeding Capabilities

We have engineered our feeders and presenters to eliminate the industry’s most frustrating challenges – jams caused by misaligned / improperly oriented fasteners. As a precaution to ward this frustration away, we have engineered 3-step fastener verification into our machines.


First Step:

Non-Adjustable Sorting Air Jet

The first step in our 3-step fastener verification is our Non-Adjustable Sorting Air jet – a highly pressurized stream of air that ejects misaligned fasteners from the track. This is our first line of defense in the prevention of feeding misaligned fasteners into the blow-feed tube, or from reaching the presenter pickup area.


Second Step:

Non-Adjustable Qualifying Track Cover:​​

The second step is a Non-Adjustable Track Qualifying Cover – a ledge at the top of the entry to our escapement, which prevents misaligned fasteners from entering the escapement. The simple construction of this feature, coupled with there being no need for adjustment, makes it a powerful addition.


Third Step:

Escapement-Level U-Bracket Optic Sensor​

The third step is our U-Bracket Optic Sensor – a laser-accurate sensor which controls the escapement track level, effectively preventing fasteners from being vibrated towards an already-fully-loaded track. When the escapement is full, the bowl will cease vibrations, stopping the flow of fasteners to the escapement.

Making your job easier...

We keep your maintenance department in mind.

We make changing our automatic screwdriver machine bits or sockets easy and quick. In most cases, no tools are required to change an automatic screwdriver machine’s bit or socket. We try to make all the regular maintenance as easy to do as possible. Our goal is to provide the most reliable and serviceable auto feed screwdriver and screw feeder systems on the market today.

If you are looking for an automatic screwdriver and screw feeder system, give us a call. We do automatic screw feeding, and we do it well. Carlson specializes in automated robotic-mounted screw driving and we know what can be done, and more importantly, what should be done.

There is always a solution to every automated fastening challenge. We will offer our advice in hopes of winning your business and respect.
