Low-cost alternative to traditional press control systems
05 September 2016
Festo is now able to offer an easy-to-use and low-cost alternative to traditional press control systems for manufacturers of electronics or other small parts with its modular servo press kit.
The servo press kit YJKP combines software and hardware components from Festo into a complete mechatronic solution.
Whether the application is press-fitting printed circuit boards into housings, inserting and verifying pins in a plug or bending and forming components, the kit is said to be able to deliver a simple system solution. It comprises modular operating software and standard Festo hardware components – the electric spindle drive ESBF, the motor EMMS-AS, the motor controller CMMP-AS, the controller CECC-X and a closed loop feedback force sensor.
The configurable servo press kit can be tailored to the needs of each user or application to ensure the that they have only the capabilities that are needed. Festo’s modular system allows users to select a force range of 0.8 to 17 kN, stroke lengths of 100 to 400 mm, axial or parallel attachment of the motor, and a single-turn or multi-turn encoder.
Operating software is pre-installed in the controller. No programming skills are needed and parameterising the press unit is simple and intuitive. Modular software offers a range of application-specific functions that can be displayed on any platform. Monitoring is also simple, as all steps can be fully checked and tracked using the software, and users can reload the results of each individual stage if needed. Evaluation and control procedures for the envelope curve, threshold value and windowing are already integrated into the software.
