SEV-E with electric stroke – automated screwdriving where it really matters

WEBER launches new fixtured screwdriving spindle with an electric stroke for hard-to-reach screwdriving locations | Vacuum technology ensures maximum process reliability
Wolfratshausen – The new fixtured screwdriving spindle SEV-E with electric stroke is one of the highlights at this year’s “automatica” international trade fair in Munich and is making its world début there. The new screwdriving spindle expands WEBER’s successful SEV series and was specifically designed for screwdriving locations that are extremely recessed and difficult to access.
WEBER has designed the screwdriving spindle with vacuum technology and an electric stroke to offer its customers a screwdriving spindle with maximum flexibility. Users can order the spindle with electronically controlled drives, with EC motor and current control. In addition, WEBER also supplies a version with electronically controlled drives and dynamic transducers for torque and angle control on request. Drives provided by the customer can also be accommodated and integrated.
Nóra Erdei, Product Manager at WEBER: “The spindle is a genuinely versatile tool, and is also extremely durable. We have equipped the SEV-E with wear-resistant surfaces, which enable transitional operation even when running dry due to a lack of oil lubrication. Moreover, we opted for a modular design for the screwdriving spindle, which significantly reduces changeover times to other modules or spare parts.”
Compact, robust, flexible – the WEBER trio
The new fixtured screwdriving spindle for the automatic feeding of fasteners features compact dimensions and is available in a left and right version, each with a short spindle length.
Erdei: “The SEV-E was specifically designed for linking to the C5V electric stroke controller – with up to 15 programs for different screwdriving heights. This allows integrated, position-dependent force compensation and monitoring of the pressing force during fastener insertion, for example. Feed rate and placement speed can be set individually to guarantee a smooth and controlled placement of the screw. The bit used also picks up the fastener gently and tolerance-free.”
The new SEV-E with electric stroke is being launched in three versions and will provide between 0.3 and 30 Nm of torque. The maximum possible rotation speeds range from 1,500 to 2,500 revolutions per minute. The weight of the spindle varies between 14 and 29 kg. With this new screwdriving spindle, WEBER has further expanded its product range and now offers integrated solutions for all screwdriving applications and screwdriving locations, which can be adapted to customer requirements.
