The E7000 riveting machine is Electroimpact’s solution for fastening of pre-tacked aircraft panels. The E7000 was designed from the beginning
with the goals of achieving industry-leading speed and reliability. A highly rigid machine structure enables operation at high feed rates. Systems
are customizable, and are presently in production manufacturing a wide variety of parts, including both commercial and military fuselage panels
(metallic and composite), wing structure, and cargo doors. Both Fanuc and Siemens controllers are available.
Additional options include lockbolt collar swaging, nut running, high-curvature panel fastening capability.

Wing panel fastening machine designed with a focus on speed and reduced weight. The E6000 is a Low-Voltage Electromagnetic Riveting (LVER) machine. The machine installs slug rivets at a rate of 16 per minute in a drill-upset-shave cycle. It is being built for a customer in Xi’an, China where it will fasten wing panels for the ARJ21 regional jet. The machine is built to accommodate slightly larger wing panels, in the size range of A320 and 737. Its configuration can be scaled to other panel sizes.
An automated machine has been designed with true offset fastening to join shear-tie/frame assemblies to the fuselage of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The machine can access fasteners located close to structural components that are very deep. This is accomplished by offsetting the fastening axis from the axis of the head for true offset fastening. The head can be positioned next to the structural component and the offset fastening tooling 'reaches' out to the fastener location.
The patented E4000 is a vertical yoke rivet/bolt machine for wing panel assembly. In the E4000 the yoke moves in five axes. Due to the use of electromagnetic riveting (EMR) the yoke can install rivets into rigid fixture assemblies. This allows the yoke to run over the panel build and install all of the rivets and lock bolts. Splice fasteners are also installed. Hence all tack fasteners are eliminated.
The E3000 was developed for Boeing and Electroimpact's line of Automatic Spar Assembly Tools.
