It's a simple equation: power costs money. And when presses in electronics and small parts manufacturing are oversized, it can often cost too much. This is precisely where the servo press kit YJKP from Festo comes in: it allows electric press-fitting applications with up to 17 kN to be implemented simply and cost-effectively.
Whether the application is to press-fit printed circuit boards into housings, insert precision parts in clock mechanisms, seal module housings or press-fit and test seals, the servo press kit from Festo provides a simple and pre-assembled system solution. It comprises modular operating software and matching standard Festo components – the electric spindle drive ESBF, the motor EMMS-AS, the motor controller CMMP-AS, the controller CECC-X and a force sensor. It is a system solution that machine and plant builders in electronics and small parts manufacturing can quickly and easily integrate into their press applications.
Individualised for increased benefit
The configurable servo press kits can be tailored to the needs of the user, guaranteeing a flexible design and reducing investment costs. This is advantageous for users as they acknowledge that in 90% of all cases they use just 10% of the power of a pre-assembled press from an established manufacturer.
The modular system allows users to choose between a force range of 0.8 to 17 kN, a stroke length of 100 to 400 mm, axial or parallel attachment of the motor, and between a single-turn or multi-turn encoder. In a word, they only choose the functions they need, thus avoiding expensive oversizing.
Easy to use
The operating software GSAY also makes life easy for users. It is pre-installed in the controller and is thus ready for use as soon as system integration is complete. No programming skills are needed and parameterising the press unit is simple and intuitive. The modular software offers a range of application-specific functions and can be displayed on any platform, on a PC, tablet or any other type of human-machine interface.
Software increases process reliability
Thanks to the function elements in the software’s integrated library, joining processes are quick to configure and easy to implement. Monitoring the process is simple, as all the steps can be fully checked and tracked for quality assurance using the software, and users can reload the results of each individual stage if needed. The three current evaluation and control procedures for the envelope curve, threshold value and windowing are already integrated in the software. What's more, the innovative servo press kit has a number of smart pre-configured functions and an OPC-UA interface that is compatible with Industry 4.0.
