Our All-rounder

The UFM Line5 range includes standard presses designs with an optimum price/performance ratio. They are well suited for assembly and joining applications with force-distance monitoring and can be integrated in automated assembly lines, test stations or manual work stations. The units cover a force range from 10 to 200 kN.


  • Standard model includes absolute encoders that eliminate the need for referencing
  • Only a power amp is required, no need for an additional external monitoring system
  • Digital force measurements with 24-bit resolution
  • Calibration of characteristic for force input
  • Sensor system can be easily extended usingn versatile PROMESS-BUS
  • Field busses can be optionally expanded using plug-in modules
  • Utilization of window and envelope technologies
  • No PLC knowledge required
  • Movement and monitoring as an integrated solution
  • Slim internal micrometer
  • Automatic grease unit optionally available
  • Integrated program memory
  • PLe for STO by default

Mechanical design

The Line5 universal joining module is robustly designed thus making it well suited for heavy duty cycles. The units use an inline design, i.e., the shaft is driven by a motor spindle in line with the shaft. The excellent rotational characteristics of this system provide excellent dynamic response. The mechanical system consists of the following components:

  • Servo Motor with absolute encoder
  • Precision gearbox (except type 1)
  • Integrated force transducer
  • Steel housing
  • Non-rotating press ram


  • Absolute encoder eliminates the need for reference run
  • Standardised dimensioning, one design for all types
  • Compact design, with angled motor optional
  • New concept for greasing and lubrication of the presses
  • Robust mechanics for Long periods of use
  • Tried-and-tested servo drive Technology, no proprietary hollow shaft motor solution

Modular and networkabel

The mechanics are triggered via a power amplifier with integrated NC-module. The risk processor fitted in the NC-module takes over the control and monitoring of the assembly unit. It can be programmed comfortably and easily with PROMESS software using a commercially available PC and thus guarantees the user the highest operating comfort as well as maximum reliability.

The force-distance course can be monitored by envelope or windows functions. Quality control data and press programs can be stored via the data base plug-in and can be used again at any time. The system features a digital pre amplifier that transmits the force signal trouble-free with a resolution of 24 Bit. The calibration by measuring map allows for a very high accuracy of the force measuring and replaces the switchover of measuring ranges.


  • Compact control inside the power amplifier
  • Fieldbuses can optionally be upgraded as plug-in module
  • PLe for STO integrated by default
  • No external analysis system required
  • Real-time force distance analysis directly in the servo amplifier




Intuitive and flexible

The UFM Software V5.XX features a transparent interface which provides simple operation. An integrated user administration with password input and rights management provides for quality assurance and traceability of the production process. The extended data base supports the server based systems SQL Server and Oracle.

New query and filter possibilities of the DB-Viewer display the requested records. Programs and editing can be stored and ever used again so that changes in the program can be retraced at any time. The real time envelope test allows for an immediate stop of the press in case of the limits being broken. The monitoring of the limit curves and the setting of the status are carried out in real time. The force-distance course can be monitored by envelope or windows functions.

Software Highlights

  • Press to signal, press to force, press to an external signal (e.g., analog or TTL signals)
  • Force and speed can be programmed indivially during the joining process
  • Variables can be used to transmit setpoints, perform calculations using PLC and generate counters
  • 100% quality control using window and/or envelope methods
  • 100% process documentation using modern database structure
  • 100% process anaylsis using standardized interface to QS-STAT (optional), alternative to process management software IPM (optional) - can be expanded using .net interface
  • Trigger function for demanding applications
  • High controller accuracy (minimization of overshoot in control processes)
  • Display of two graphs in one diagramm
  • Quick printout of a graph report (screenshot)
