Automec, Inc. is the North American distributor of the PressOne Electric Insertion Machine. The PressOne is the first and only fully electric insertion machine in the industry, offering a range of benefits over conventional hydraulic machines. The PressOne can insert fasteners such as nuts, studs, rivets, or screws into various materials, creating strong and permanent joints. Therefore, the PressOne is ideal for applications that require high precision, speed, and efficiency, such as sheet metal fabrication, automotive, aerospace, and electronics.

The PressOne uses a servo motor-driven ball screw to generate force, instead of relying on hydraulics. This means that the PressOne only needs electricity to operate, reducing energy consumption and environmental impact. The average power consumption of the PressOne is less than 0.4 KW, which is significantly lower than hydraulic machines that can consume up to 10 KW. Additionally, the PressOne eliminates the need for hydraulic fluid changes, spare parts, valves, and maintenance expenses, saving time and money for the user.

The PressOne has a force range of 1 to 20 kN, which can be adjusted by 0.1 kN increments. It also has a stroke length of 100 mm, which can be adjusted by 0.01 mm increments. These features allow the user to control the insertion process with high accuracy and repeatability. The PressOne can also insert fasteners up to M8 size in steel and up to M10 size in aluminum.

A built-in touch screen control panel displays all the PressOne’s relevant parameters and settings, as well as a USB port for data transfer and backup. In addition, the PressOne can be equipped with an automatic tooling system that can hold up to 12 different tools and change them automatically according to the program. This feature increases productivity and reduces manual labor.

The PressOne can also be integrated with a robot arm or a conveyor belt for automated loading and unloading of workpieces.

The PressOne machines offer modern technology, allowing for even faster insertions and direct control of the entire stroke. PressOne machines use a ball screw and a servo motor to administer the pressing force. This allows for full control of the stroke, position, and tonnage of the machine. Since PressOne uses ball screw/servo technology the machines offer direct positioning without over/under-travel of the ram. This allows the operator to produce repeatable parts all day. There are no hydraulics whatsoever. No oil changes or fluid viscosity fluctuations. The machines come with a 12” user-friendly control.

Low Operating Costs: Thanks to the modern servo drive system, the average power consumption of the PressOne is less than 0.4kw.

Safety Sensors mounted on the ram head ensure fast and safe production cycle. The ram position is read from a rotary encoder on the servo motor. It is calculating the position it should achieve, along with the tonnage requirement. If the stroke is interrupted before the desired position is achieved, it will stop immediately.

The machines can be equipped with an “auto feeder” or used with a 4-station, color coded turret carousel.

PressOne Electric Insertion Machine Traditional Hydraulic Insertion Machine
Motor Servo motor-driven ball screw Hydraulic motor, pump, and fluids
Energy Usage Low. Average power consumption is less than 0.4 KW. It consumes less electricity, as it only uses energy when in motion. High. Average power consumption up to 10 KW. Hydraulic insertion machines consume more energy than electric ones because they need to keep the oil pump running even when they are not working. This makes them less efficient and expensive to run and maintain.
Accuracy High. Electric insertion machines can adjust the force and stroke of the ram with high precision and repeatability. The servo motor-driven ball screw can control the speed and position of the ram with minimal backlash or error. Electric machines allow you to control the ram by position or tonnage. There is no “overtravel” or “undertravel” due to hydraulic viscosity fluctuations. Low. Hydraulic insertion machines have difficulty adjusting the force and stroke of the ram with high precision and repeatability. The hydraulic pump can cause variations in pressure from heat build-up or oil viscosity changes. Many Hydraulic insertion machines are programmed by tonnage and not position. Hydraulic viscosity fluctuations occur allowing for the possibility of “overtravel” or “undertravel” of ram.
Speed Faster. Electric insertion machines can operate faster and more smoothly than hydraulic ones. Electric machines have “direct positioning” with immediate accelerations/decelerations, due to the ball screw/servo design. Electric insertion machines can also be integrated with a robot arm or a conveyor belt for automated loading and unloading of workpieces. Slower. Hydraulic insertion machines operate slower and less smoothly than electric ones. Hydraulic machines use fluids, valves, and the transfer of electrical signals, which create some lag in speed changes and accelerations.
Environmental Effects Positive. Electric insertion machines are more environmentally friendly because they consume less energy and do not use hydraulic oil, which can contaminate surrounding areas. Negative. Hydraulic oil can cause environmental problems if it leaks, spills, or contaminates the surroundings. Hydraulic oil also needs to be disposed of properly after it is used up, which adds to the cost and waste of the machine.
Maintenance Low. Electric insertion machines have fewer moving parts and do not require hydraulic fluid changes, spare parts, valves, or maintenance expenses. High. Hydraulic insertion machines have more moving parts and require hydraulic fluid changes, spare parts, valves, or maintenance expenses. Hydraulic insertion machines have more components that can wear out or break down over time and need constant servicing and repairs.
Cost Effectiveness High. Electric machines eliminate the need for hydraulic fluid changes, spare parts, valves, and maintenance expenses, saving time and money for the user. Low. The high maintenance cost and lower accuracy and productivity of hydraulic insertion machines make them less cost effective for the user.
