Installation press is hydraulics free

The Pemserter Series 3000 automatic fastener-installation press system available through Zygology uses green technology to operate without hydraulics to install all types of self-clinching fasteners in thin metal sheets.

The heart of the press is a custom- built, full servo controlled, electro-mechanical actuator delivering measurable efficiencies and economies compared with conventional technologies.The system is sealed and lubricated for life to eliminate environmental issues and minimise maintenance and associated costs.

Among key press features, the dual axis actuator allows for ram speed optimisation, high pressing forces, and dramatically reduced energy usage; a proprietary clutch system provides smooth, energy-efficient transition between servo axes; roller screw technology enables the press to carry larger loads at higher speeds; and regenerative/dynamic braking captures inertial energy and applies it to deceleration for a reduction in external energy requirements. The Series 3000 press is engineered for user-friendly operation. After initial PC setup, all
run logic is maintained in solidstate servo controller memory, which consumes less power than conventional systems. Multiple types of self-clinching fasteners can be installed automatically without any need for tooling changeovers. The press is designed with a 61cm throat depth, runs at unprecedented cycle rates, can realise a ram force up to 71.2kN, and can be operated remotely through networking. The press is CE certified to comply with applicable European standards.
