SCHMIDT® TorquePress

Compact, with high efficiency and hollow shaft motor

In addition to the ServoPress series, the SCHMIDT® TorquePress has a number of special features. Among other things, a hollow-shaft torque motor is used, which enables very high press forces with a very high motor torque without additional mechanical transmissions.

Compared to other electric presses, the noise level remains remarkably low under all load conditions. The spindle nut, which is driven directly without the use of additional gears, enables very high levels of efficiency. Thanks to the hollow shaft motor, the TorquePress is particularly compact and enables short overall lengths.

SCHMIDT ® TorquePress are EC type-tested in connection with the safety technology options SmartGate , SmartGuard and light curtain and optionally with the particularly economical one 2-hand operation .

Process control behavior

  • Distance measurement takes place directly on the ram, which results in extremely high positioning and repeat accuracy.
  • Absolute position measuring system, so no reference travel is necessary.
  • Highly precise pressing force detection through direct force introduction into the sensors

Intelligent compensation

  • by offsetting individual tolerances of the parts
  • of system elasticities (deflection compensation)

Precise and robust mechanical structure

  • directly driven spindle nut, no additional gear
  • integrated automatic spindle lubrication system,
  • Capable of full load over the complete ram stroke

Real-time evaluation

  • immediate reaction to process and quality data
  • no delay due to slow process data transfer
  • immediate availability of SPC data

System immediately operational

  • Standard travel profiles only require the entry of position and speed
  • The system parameterizes itself automatically.
