MP85A FASTpress reduces cylinder head assembly times.

HBM's latest MP85A FASTpress controller removes problems associated with the press-fitting of valve rods in cylinder head assemblies by monitoring the complete process with its PME Assistant.

The PME Assistant assigns tolerance windows with individual evaluation criteria to each valve rod on the cylinder head. This enables potential problem spots on the cylinder head to be identified immediately using its force-displacement characteristics. Date, component, and serial number through to the desired spot for press-fitting on the cylinder head can be selectively searched for.

The PME Assistant also carries out data acquisition and conditioning while NIO curves are quickly found using the protocol browser. The MP85A FASTpress connects to machine controllers using an industrial Profibus fieldbus and TCP/IP protocols.
The "intelligent" measurement technology markedly increases efficiency. The MP85A FASTpress features an Ethernet interface that enables measurement curves and results to be directly transferred and saved to a PC.

Using existing networks substantially facilitates centralized quality data management in large-scale, complex manufacturing systems. Remote maintenance and diagnosis in the case of problems also provide fast and cost-efficient support.
