Festo YJKP Modular Servo Press Kit
July 19, 2019 | By MRO Magazine
Festo’s YJKP modular servo press kit comes pre-assembled and pre-tested. Components – electric spindle drive, motor, motor controller, force sensor and control system – are deliver press forces up to 17 kN. The spindle axis, mounting kit and servo are combined as a single application-specific module.
YJKP modular software features application-specific functions for up to 15 common tasks, including press-fitting connectors on PCBs, bending, stamping, crimping, securing, riveting, punching and straightening. It can be used with a web visualization tool, laptop, tablet and is compatible with all major platforms.
Configuration options for the YJKP include a range of stroke lengths from 100-400 mm, axial or parallel motor attachment, motor with or without a holding brake, single turn or multi-turn encoders, and the appropriate cable lengths. The press controller’s CPC–UA interface makes it adaptable to Industry 4.0 systems.
Users can exchange control and process data with higher order controllers over an Ethernet interface as soon as the press controller is integrated into a local network.
