As our torque tools have become more sophisticated, so has our ability to error-proof an assembly process. We’ve moved from torque control to angle monitoring to error-proofing strategies like post view torque, snug gradient, and seating control.
Atlas Copco is now introducing an exciting new product to our assembly portfolio that applies all the error-proofing capability we have in our torque tools to our pressing applications. Our PST line of servo-driven presses can accurately control the speed and force that they use in a press application with extreme precision.
The tool controller for the PST range also provides advanced error-proofing, with the ability to monitor the progress of a press to make sure it follows a “roadmap”. Using this feature, we can ensure that a product was pressed to the correct force and that it arrived at that force the right way.
Finally, we can bring our top flight application knowledge and service to bear on pressing applications. We are available to be on site for a demonstration, a pressing seminar, or a line walk to determine potential applications for our pressing tools.
If you have a need for improved error-proofing, ergonomics, or productivity in a press application, contact us today for more information.
