The Pemserter's Series 3000 automatic fastener-installation press system
introduces "green" technology by performing without hydraulics to install all
types of self-clinching fasteners in thin-metal sheets. The custom-built, full
servo controlled, electro-mechanical actuator delivers measurable efficiencies
and economies compared with conventional technologies. The Series 3000 press
system is sealed and lubricated for life to eliminate environmental issues and
minimize maintenance and associated costs. After initial PC setup, all run
logic is maintained in solid-state 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 dual axis actuator allows for ram speed
optimization, high pressing forces and reduced energy usage. A proprietary
clutch system provides energy-efficient transition between servo axes and
roller screw technology enables the press to carry larger loads at higher
speeds. Regenerative/dynamic braking captures inertial energy and applies it to
deceleration for a reduction in external energy requirements.
The Series 3000 press is designed
with a 24 inch/61 cm throat depth, can realize a ram force up to 16,000 lbs/71.2
kN and can be operated remotely through networking. The press is CE certified
to comply with applicable European standards.
Californiaís plan to mandate an electric vehicle market isnít the first such undertaking and certainly wonít be the last. But as the Golden State ratchets up for its next big step toward zero-emission vehicle status in 2018, it might be wise to consider a bit of history.
A customer who was thermal printing strip steel had a problem: When the strip's speed increased, the thermo printer would catch fire. When he set a flame to a piece of the strip, he couldn't get it to burn. What was the problem?
