Electro-Mechanical Assembly Presses provide up to 225 lbf.
June 22, 2006 -
Available in two models with max force capacities of 44.5 and 225 lbf, presses are designed for precision assembly operations in medical, electronics, automotive, and general manufacturing industries. Servomotor drives ball screw in press body to produce linear pressing force. Able to be fitted with additional sensors such as load cells or position probes, this arrangement can be monitored and controlled using encoder and CNC technology.

Promess Introduces Two New Electro-Mechanical Assembly Presses
For Precision Assembly Operations Requiring Up To 1 kN Of Force
Brighton, Mich., June 05, 2006 - Promess, Inc. has introduced two new models to its line of Electro-Mechanical Assembly Presses (EMAP) designed for precision assembly operations. One unit provides 200 Newtons (44.5 pounds-force), and the other 1,000 Newtons (1 kN; 225 pounds-force).
The new EMAPs are the smallest presses offered by Promess.
They are intended for applications in the medical, electronics, automotive, and general manufacturing industries for which previous, larger EMAP units deliver more capability than the process requires.
"This new compact assembly press gives customers an economical choice for smaller assembly operations where its combination of compact size and precise control previously have not been available," said Promess president Larry Stockline. "There are many assembly operations that require force in the 200 Newton to1 kN range, and these new EMAPs are an ideal solution for them."
The Promess EMAP uses a servomotor to drive a ball screw in the press body to produce the linear pressing force. This arrangement is very easy to monitor and control using standard encoder and CNC technology, and can be fitted easily with additional sensors like load cells or position probes to create sophisticated system capabilities. These units are widely used as the basis of intelligent assembly systems in the medical, electronics, automotive, appliance, and other high-volume manufacturing industries.
In their field work, Promess engineers have found increasing numbers of opportunities for EMAP applications on both ends of the size spectrum. The new 200 Newton and 1 kN models are a response to low force assembly requirements as part of a comprehensive product offering that includes units with outputs up to 340,000 pounds-force (1,512,395 Newtons).
Promess is a 23-year-old American firm that develops, manufactures, and markets its family of sensing devices and electronics on a world-wide basis.
