Penn Engineering & Manufacturing Corp. has re-engineered its PEMSERTER(reg) Series 4 press system to run 35% faster than the previous model. Longer-life components have been added as well, along with user-friendly controls. The 6-ton manual press system has an 18-inch (45.7 cm) throat depth for a generous work area. It can install self-clinching fasteners in sizes #0 through 3/8-inch, and M2 through M10 in steel; and sizes up to 1/2 inch and M12 in aluminum or circuit boards. Penn says the system's pneumatic power delivers speed, consistency, and simple operation. The press also features a "point-of-operation" safety, and adjustable insertion forces from 500 lbs to 6 tons (2.2 to 53.3 kN). PEMSERTER Systems Div., Penn Engineering & Manufacturing Corp.
