Assembly Show 2018: BalTec presents their latest product ELECTRIC– the electromechanical module for riveting, joining and cold forming

BalTec presents its latest development ELECTRIC – the module for efficient and precise riveting and cold forming as well as for joining processes at the Assembly Show, Chicago from October 23 to 25. Booth 621.

BalTec ELECTRIC BalTec's core competence is to provide solutions for joining of components. While applying the radial forming method, in combination with linear motion to and from the work piece and integrated rotational drive, the radial & orbital riveting technique is revolutionized. The technology of electro-mechanical servo presses has been transferred to this particular joining and forming method. It allows producing permanent mechanical connections with the highest speed and precision. The electromechanical riveting and forming module offers users the following benefits: - Lower energy and maintenance costs due to the electromechanical drive. - Slim design provides for more compact systems being built and thus capital costs can be reduced. - The production output is significantly increased thanks to dynamic feed and rotation speed as well as flexible programming of the motion profile. - The process-integrated quality assurance allows for early detection of faults. - Process data can be stored in a customer-specific manner to ensure complete traceability. - The process head has been designed to be interchangeable so that different processes (radial riveting, orbital riveting, roller-forming and, joining) can be accommodated with the same basic unit. The ELECTRIC has a stroke of up to 100 mm and a maximum linear speed of up to 140 mm / sec. The drive for the rotary movement can be variably adjusted up to a speed of 3000 rpm and is designed for a forming force of 3 to 15 kN. The flexibility allows programming of individual forming profiles. Sensors for monitoring stroke, force and temperature are integrated in the unit. The logic and safety modules, the motor drives as well as the common interfaces Ethernet / IP- & USP are installed in the control package. This ensures today's industrial standard with remote maintenance and readiness for INDUSTRY 4.0. The basic package includes the electromechanical unit with control cabinet as well as the specially developed HPPi software. The software works on any Windows 10 PC. As an option, a 10.4 inch PC monitor with preinstalled software is also available. Different configurations - whether modular and compact as a unit, ideal for integration into automated lines, or as a stand-alone working cell (CE) - are available as standard configurations. CLASSIC HPP In addition to the new product ELECTRIC, the BalTec booth will also show the classic riveting machine products, proven technology for many years – some equipped with the innovative Process Control HPP-25.

BalTec Group The core competence of the BalTec Group, headquartered in Pfäffikon (Zurich), is the production of machines for joining technology - especially for radial riveting technology, but also for orbital riveting, roller forming and joining. In 1968, BalTec, then known as Bräcker, introduced the radial riveting technology in various industries. Today, the company is the world's leading company in joining technology and has its own locations in Switzerland, Germany, USA, UK, France, Brazil and China with over 40,000 BalTec riveting machines installed.
