PennEngineering enhances safety of its PEMSERTER Series 4 machine

22 June 2014

The PEMSERTER Series 4 fastener installation press from PennEngineering is upgraded with a new optical sensor feature for enhanced operational safety.

The PEMSERTER Series 4 press for installing self-clinching fasteners has been newly upgraded with an optical sensor feature designed to promote faster work set-up. The Optical Sensor Indicator (OSI) has been integrated as standard into the built-in point-of-operation safety of the press to signal when the safety level is properly set for each job.

The OSI activates during set-up mode when the press ram/punch is being adjusted onto the work-piece prior to fastener installation. The process is set in motion when the operator unlocks the ram-jam nut and then begins to adjust the ram clockwise.  The OSI then changes color (from black to orange) at the exact point when the safety is successfully engaged, eliminating the potential for operator error.

The PEMSERTER Series 4 press achieves adjustable insertion force from 1.8kN to 53.4kN and features 45.7cm throat depth, providing clearance for a wide variety of chassis configurations.
