New Automatic Fastener Press from Penn Eng.
Automatic fastener press.
Danboro, PA — The new Pemserter® Series 3000 automatic fastener-installation press can install self-clinching fasteners up to 30 percent faster than traditional systems to deliver comparable productivity gains. Full servo electromechanical actuation technology provides significant improvement in operating consistency, improved reliability, increased efficiencies, and minimized maintenance. Total elimination of hydraulic fluids makes for an environmentally friendly system.

The new press introduces "clean" technology without hydraulics to install all types of self-clinching fasteners rapidly, accurately, and permanently in thin-metal sheets. The electromechanical servo drive optimizes ram function to achieve repeatable speed and force for proper fastener installation.

The system's PC-based programming interfaces with Windows operating platforms for job versatility and customization; menu-driven touch-screen controls, descriptive screen alerts, and an on-screen multi-media instructional video contribute to user-friendly operation and quick learning; data logging capabilities allow for performance monitoring; and a patented Lightstream® Operator Safety System provides a continuous safeguard by ensuring ram force is applied only to fasteners.

The press is designed with a 24-in. (61cm) throat depth; runs at unprecedented cycle rates; can realize a ram force up to 16,000 lbs. (71.2kN); and can be operated remotely through networking. The press is CE certified to comply with applicable European standards.
