PennEngineering®'s PEMSERTER® in-die fastener-feeding system is engineered to install self-clinching nuts, studs, and standoffs in assemblies during the stamping process. Working in tandem with a stamping press and properly tooled die to feed and install fasteners, this portable system eliminates secondary operations typically required for fastener insertions.
The system uses multipin twist-lock connectors to interface with the die and stamping press. It can be configured for multiple or single insertions, generally matching the rate of the stamping press.
Operators are guided by a touchscreen for setup and operation and an online library of fault/help screens. Removable tooling can handle complex workpieces and offers adaptability for reaching into areas generally considered inaccessible. Customized tooling can be engineered to meet particular application needs.
The system consists of die tooling, fastener-feeding system, and die-sensing system.
