The new Kistler NCFE servopress solution is specifically designed for simple joining processes to deliver a cost-effective alternative to conventional pneumatic or hydraulic systems.
Compared to hydraulic or pneumatic units, the NCFE module offers impressively low energy consumption, simple handling and fast commissioning for applications in the measuring range from 10 to 80 kN.
A new era dawns for machine builders
The NCFE module is a cost-effective, off the shelf joining system using integrated sensor technology that gives users the benefit of complete end-to-end monitoring and control of the entire joining process. Installation and handling are made much simpler, so machine builders can design custom systems which deliver low energy consumption and flexibility.
Comprehensive control guaranteed by the maXYmos NC system
The joining process is controlled by Kistler's maXYmos NC system, which evaluates and documents the force/displacement curves for joining and press-fit processes in conjunction with the joining modules and the matching IndraDrive servo amplifier. The patterns of measurement curves can be used to monitor the quality of a single production step, a sub-assembly or an entire product, with control in real time via SERCOS III. The benefits of optimal cycle times can be achieved with maximum repeat precision. Downtime is minimized and machine availability is increased boosting productivity for the entire manufacturing process.
The right joining system for every application
The Kistler NCFE module offers significantly greater efficiency than hydraulic and pneumatic joining processes. Savings potential with the electrical process is about 77% as compared to hydraulic and about 90% to pneumatic processes. Further cost savings accrue from the minimal maintenance needs of the NCFE system and 100% quality control in real time virtually eliminating rejects during production.
