Clear Automation, PennEngineering to Launch New Installation System

Mar 16, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Clear Automation and PennEngineering announced they have joined forces to introduce robotic capabilities engineered for the Pemserter Series 3000 Press fastener installation press.

According to a release, the partnership between the two companies provides a marketplace opportunity for completely hands-off installation of self-clinching fasteners using the newly developed ROBOTIC Pemserter Installation System.

The robotic system developed by Clear Automation for the Pemserter Series 3000 press is equipped to pick up, move, and position a work piece for alignment with holes where fasteners will be installed automatically by the press. After fastener installation, the robot removes the finished work piece and advances to the next job.

The system is offered in two standard packages to accommodate various work piece sizes. The turnkey package integrates an input conveyor with locator, output conveyor, gripper, FANUC robot, and a basic sequence program to interface with the Pemserter Series 3000 press. Among available robot options, a robot slide can be supplied to expand work cells for multiple Pemserter presses.

The Pemserter Series 3000 automatic fastener installation press system performs without hydraulics to install all types of self-clinching fasteners rapidly, accurately, and permanently in thin metal sheets. The press is designed with a 24" / 61cm throat depth, can realize a ram force up to 16,000 lbs. / 71.2kN, can be operated remotely through networking, and is CE certified to comply with applicable European standards.
