Specifications and Options

HYDRAULIC SPEED CONTROL precision hydraulic control of the melt velocity. Critical to achieve maximum weld strength in staking, inserting and shear joint applications.

LINEAR OPTICAL ENCODER Ability to weld by collapse and absolute distance through out 7 inches of stroke with .0005 of an inch resolution. (requires DPC III or IV Plus w/ distance module)

PRE-TRIGGER and END-of-WELD LIMIT SWITCHES Pre-trigger provides ability to initiate weld (sonics on) phase of the cycle prior to contacting part. Great for staking applications. End of weld provides ability to weld to predetermined position in the stroke, simple absolute distance.

4′ (1219mm) chrome column increases part load area height by 12 inches

1.50 ” (38mm), or 2.00 ” (51mm) and 3.00″ (76mm) air cylinder

PROGRAMMABLE pressure profiling and force by interface with electronic pressure regulator, pressure transducer, and load cell press options offer increased control, repeatability, and consistency

OPTICAL cycle activation switches

Pneumatic requirements: 80-110 psi max. clean, dry air

Maximum available clamp pressure: 540 lbs at 110 psi with standard 2.50″ (63.5mm) air cylinder

Allow 5.00″ (130mm) behind the press/ thruster for air line and cable connections
