Festo YJKP servo press kits sized for low-pressure applications
August 26, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Aug. 26, 2017 – The Festo YJKP servo press kit promises to address a fundamental cost issue in electronics and small parts manufacturing.
According to Festo, YJKP kits are optimized for press-fitting jobs up to 17 kN, and larger press kits use as little as 10 per cent of their power to apply little pressure. Ideal applications for the kits include: press-fitting printed circuit boards into housings, inserting precision parts in clock mechanisms, sealing module housings or press-fitting and testing seals. Each YJKP comes pre-assembled and is comprised of modular operating software and matched Festo components – an electric spindle drive, motor, motor controller, process controller and force sensor. The configurable YJKP is adaptable to the requirements of the application. Users can choose between a force range of 0.8 to 17 kN, a stroke length of 100 to 400 mm, axial or parallel attachment of the motor, and a single-turn or multi-turn encoder. All steps can be checked and tracked for quality assurance using the YJKP’s software. The three current evaluation and control procedures for the envelope curve, threshold value and windowing are already integrated in the software.
