5 Ways Smart Press Kit Improves Assembly, Joining and Testing

Maximize transparency, reduce downtime and boost productivity with the new Smart Press Kit from Rexroth. The modular Smart Press Kit includes electromechanical, electrical and software components. This plug-and-produce, no-coding-required solution makes assembly, joining and testing applications smarter, faster and more productive in five simple ways.

Easy Product Selection and Configuration
Quickly size and select products with the LinSelect tool from Rexroth. You can configure a complete product within five clicks. The preselected Smart Press Kit components meet the requirements for forces from 450 to 6,745 lbs.

Fast Ordering and Delivery
The Smart Press Kit is sourced from a single supplier – simplifying delivery with one package from one source.

Intuitive Commissioning and Process Configuration
With the Smart Press Kit, no programming knowledge is required thanks to guided commissioning with a set-up wizard. There is a minimal number of interfaces due to integrated motion control and preinstalled operating software allows for automatic parameterization of the servo drive.

Streamlined Operations and Diagnosis
The Smart Press Kit includes a live display of force-displacement curves with subsequent analysis. The display offers a visualization of process and status information and all process data is stored on an internal database. Data can be exported via web HMI and IoT connection is available via OPC-UA.

Improved Service and Maintenance
Status reports and quality statistics are available through the display and error messages are displayed as plain text in the software. Additional predictive maintenance functions and support will be available in the future.

American Welding Society, Arnold Fastening, and Morrell Group Showcase Resistance Element Welding

Auburn Hills, Michigan, October 10, 2019 – The Morrell Group hosted American Welding Society, Detroit and Arnold Fastening for a technical meeting highlighting a resistance element welding process called Flexweld®. This technology, presented and demonstrated by Edward Kortes, M.S. from Arnold Fastening, joins aluminum to various conventional and high-strength-steel alloys in a single process. This process allows manufacturers a reliable way of reducing cost, mass, and energy consumption. Flexweld®, represents a solution that utilizes the previously existing availability of resistance welders in body shops. Given the fact that resistance spot welding is well-established, well-studied, and commonplace in the industry, resistance element welding stands to be more easily integrated into contemporary manufacturing relative to other mixed material joining technologies.

After the presentation, guests enjoyed food and drinks awhile observing demonstrations of other Morrell Group solutions including Bosch Rexroth Tightening Technologies, Dopag dispensing systems, SICK Sensor Intelligence, Bosch Rexroth Linear, Emerson Aventics Pneumatic systems, and more.

Thank you to the American Welding Society and Arnold Fastening for helping to create a memorable evening.
