Festo offers a modular servo press kit YJKP that consists of modular operating software and harmonised standard Festo components. With electric spindle drive, motor, motor controller, force sensor and control system, one can have everything of need for electric press-fitting applications up to 17 kN. All what needs to be done is to integrate it into the press-fitting application. The pre-installed operating software is ready to use straight away and one does not need to be a programming expert to parameterise it, it’s that easy and intuitive. The modular software in CODESYS, featuring application-specific functions, can be used on a PC, iPad or other types of human-machine interface and is compatible with all kinds of platforms. The controller CECC-X with OPC-UA interface makes the system ready for Industry 4.0. Also, with YJKP, it is easy to monitor press-fitting applications and lots of other parameters in real time. For example, force, displacement, torque and angle can be monitored during joining, press-fitting, swivelling and rotation processes.
