The upgraded PEMSERTER® Series 2000® automatic fastener-installation press system from PennEngineering® installs all types of self-clinching fasteners permanently in thin-metal sheets.
New features include job search and recall mode that allows operators to reference 300 stored jobs and return to previous jobs. The upgraded programmable logic control with more memory accommodates custom programs, and a redesigned cast aluminum bowl with epoxy coating handles larger parts. A wide feeder track increases fastener-feeding rates, and the shuttle support design helps to improve small-fastener feeding.
The system features a 24- in. throat depth and performs at cycles rates up to 2,750 strokes per hour while delivering a ram force of 400 to 16,000 lbs.
