Servo Motors Replace Hydraulics for Cleaner, Simpler Production
B A Die Mold's PERC System uses a servo motor to rotate the core, which streamlines the processes of creating parts.
B A Die Mold Inc. (B A) offers its patented Programmable Electric Rotating Core (PERC) system. It is a compact, high-speed, high-torque and high-precision system using programmable servo motors in place of hydraulics for unscrewing applications. B A’s PERC system is fully programmable and highly accurate. Users can program an unlimited number of profiles and repeatability is absolute. B A says it’s perfect for electric molding machines and clean rooms. B A builds and programs the control cabinet so it’s ready to run at the user’s facility. And, if desired, one cabinet can be used with multiple molds. B A says that the system itself requires little to no maintenance.
PERC eliminates the need for a rack and cylinder. Instead, it uses a servo motor to rotate the core, which streamlines the processes of creating parts with an unlimited number of threads, intricate geometry or special requirements. Eliminating the hydraulic cylinder also eliminates the hydraulic cylinder maintenance and makes PERC sanitary for use in cleanroom and FDA situations. In fact, PERC servo motors can be purchased sealed specifically for cleanroom manufacturing environments.
