New Electromechanical NC Joining Module NCFB - A Low Cost Solution

The latest addition to the Kistler NC Electromechanical Joining Module family is a low cost version specially designed for standard joining processes with a very attractive price structure achieved without compromising performance.

The 400 mm stroke allows deep end points can be easily reached whilst stroke speed of up to 150 mm/s offers a quick return stroke and hence a short machine cycle, even for a long idle stroke. The use of the absolute encoder, which is part of the standard equipment on all Kistler NC joining modules, eliminates the need for reference point determination even during operation. The piezoelectric force sensor integrated into the robust case offers a choice of two predefined measuring ranges, 50 kN and 25 kN, for precision force measurement.

The NC Compact Firmware, which is integrated into the servo controller, is ideal for simple force displacement evaluation and documentation of standard joining tasks. With only a 3-phase electrical supply needed, infrastructure costs are extremely low, making the NCFB joining module exceptionally easy to integrate into an existing production control environment.
