maXYmos BL, maXYmos TL and maXYmos NC brochure - .PDF file.

At the Assembly Show 2014 in Rosemont, Illinois, from 28–30 October 2014, Kistler will showcase a joining system comprising maXYmos NC, the IndraDrive servo amplifier and NC joining modules. The maXYmos NC monitors and controls the joining process.

The XY monitors from Kistler’s maXYmos series enable customers to visualise and evaluate production process, allowing them to operate in a consistent, process-integrated manner while maximising quality assurance. To achieve this, they monitor XY curves where two measured variables must be in a certain relation to each other. Force displacement curves are a good example of this, which arise from bearings being press-fitted into a pocket.

A further development to the maXYmos product range, the maXYmos NC (numeric control) enables NC joining systems to also be monitored and controlled. Such NC joining systems are predominantly used in the automotive and supply industry in manufacturing processes such as gearbox, motor, chassis or pump installation.

The maXYmos NC evaluates and documents the XY curves of joining and press-fitting operations in combination with NC joining modules and the associated IndraDrive servo amplifier. Due to the shape of measurement curves, each stage of the production and assembly line — and even the entire product — can be monitored and operated via SERCOS III in real time. As a result, optimum cycle times can be achieved with a high degree of repeat accuracy, thereby reducing downtimes and allowing for increased machine availability in order to optimise the overall production process and throughput.

The integrated sequence control (Sequencer Mode) enables processes to be illustrated without the need for expensive external PLC programming. The programs are set up in a clear, straightforward manner using the intuitive user interface of the touchscreen. Up to 128 programs can be stored with the option of defining each one with an independent sequence of up to 255 elements. As a result, even complex processes can be illustrated simply and effectively.

Kistler will be found on stand 1013 at the Assembly Show.
