The article reports on the alliance between Promess Inc. and AKH FAS-NER Systems to supply advanced metal-joining presses based on the former's Electro-Mechanical Assembly Press (EMAP) technology. EMAP is equipped with motion controllers and sensors that monitor force and position. AKH manufactures flush-mounted fasteners that can be used in spot welding and conventional riveting. AKH sales manager Dave Caulk says that EMAP integrates assembly, quality assurance, process monitoring and control.
