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.
