New Pemserter(R) Die-Feeding System Installs Fasteners During The Stamping Process
DANBORO, PA, March 1, 2002 -- The PEMSERTER® Die-Feeding System has been introduced by the PEMSERTER Products Division of PEM® Fastening Systems to install self-clinching nuts, studs, and standoffs in workpieces during the stamping process. Working in tandem with a stamping press (and properly tooled die) to feed and install fasteners, this portable system eliminates secondary operations typically required for fastener insertions. Users can realize increased productivity, quality, and savings and gain a competitive edge as the system provides a capability to perform two operations (stamping and fastener-installation) simultaneously in the die.
The PEMSERTER Die-Feeding System is virtually "plug and play" by utilizing multi-pin twist lock connectors to interface with the die and stamping press. (Only a standard 110V receptacle and shop air are required for operation.) Recognizing an industry need for flexibility, the system can be configured for multiple or single insertions, generally matching the rate of the stamping press.
Operators are guided by a touch-screen (for set-up and operation) and an online library of fault/help screens. Standard, removable tooling can handle complex workpieces and offers considerable adaptability capable of reaching into areas generally considered inaccessible. Customized tooling can be engineered to meet particular application needs.
The Die-Feeding System consists of die tooling, fastener-feeding system, and die-sensing system. Customers are fully supported from die design through installation and in-house training.
