Gerhard Lechler founded the company
PROMESS in 1977 as an engineering of-
ce in the eld of technical measurement
in Berlin. Initially, the company distributed
handmade patented measuring bearings
for tool condition monitoring before the
electro-mechanical assembly press (UFM)
with integrated NC control was born at the
end of the 1980s. Right from the begin-
ning it was the strength and the passion
From process development to pre-
liminary testing, from initial installation

Overview of
Press Types
The units of the series UFM Precision5
can be congured differently: with or
without holding brake and with piezo or
strain gauge force transducer, except
the 200 N unit which is equipped with
a piezo force transducer by default.
Additionally the following types are
PROMESS UMF Precision5 5
4 PROMESS UMF Precision5
The UFM Precision5 series features a
high precision design. The non-rotating
press ram runs in a precision guidance
without any rotation backlash.
The radial offset of the press ram is
extremely small over the full stroke.
Also the force transducer is mounted
non-rotating at the press ram.
The linear design of the press allows
for high speeds due to the spindle, that
is directly driven by the aligned servo-
motor. The integrated absolute encoder
(except 200 N unit) ensures precise
positioning and eliminates the need for
referencing at the start of a cycle. The
robust design makes it well suited for
long periods of use.
System Design
The mechanical system is controlled by
a power amplier with an integrated NC
module. The internal RISC processor
coordinates the assembly press and can
be easily programmed and operated
using a conventional PC/display.
The controller coordinates the me-
chanical motion of the press as well as
monitoring the force and distance. The
force-distance characteristic can be
monitored using envelopes and/or win-
dow methods. The data can be edited
numerically and graphically so that each
individual process can be easily moni-
tored. The automatic learning function
allows customers to eliminate the need
for custom programming and simply
learn the processing limits using a good
part. Quality assurance data is stored
using the database plugin and can be
re-used at any time.
Design basis for all
mechanical parts:
FNominal = 2.5 x CDyn
This guarantees an
extremely long life cycle
(min. 12 million strokes on
average for standard
assembly processes)

The system utilizes a digital preampli-
er. This transfers the force signal at a
resolution of 24-bit. When the character-
istics are calibrated, the assembly press
achieves a system accuracy of 0.3 %
from the nal value.
The characteristic calibration process
is comparable to a multispan calibration
for 10 spans. The characteristic map is
created automatically using the UFMR
Calibrate plugin. The results are stored
in a calibration report and can be print-
ed out.

As standard, the UFM Precision5 range
of presses comes with the UFM V5.xx
programming software. This software
is intuitive to operate and does not
require any PLC expertise. It can be
used to create simple or advanced
joining processes.
The integrated User Administration
feature offers multiple permission levels
and logging for process safety. The
log documents who makes which
changes to the program. Each user
prole can be exported and then
imported to another station. Thus it is
possible to integrate a user administ-
ration system and also to connect the
system to a higher-level permission
system using the .Net interface or eld
bus (e.g., Euchner EKS system).
Highlights for
n Positioning on force slope:
Joining components until a
denite slope (increasing
force) or relatively once a
click point has been detected.
n Controller module:
This module allows you to
easily solve processes by
controlling the process
variables and maintaining
constant signals, e.g., spin-
ning operations with constant
force controlling.
n Measurement data system:
Measurement data can be
captured relative to positions
and force, but also relative
to freely denable reference
points (e.g., relative to achie-
ving a specic threshold).
n Bending compensation:
Not only customizable for
separate systems, also for
specic processes and
Main window

Entry screen Tare
The transparent and concise program
surface allows users to quickly create
programs. The main window lists all
programming steps together with their
functions. The function screens can
be opened successively to enter the
process values. Thus the force, displa-
cement, time, speed, acceleration and
braking rate can be easily programmed
for each step. Once the required input
screens have been dened, the joining
program is completed and the steps
are processed automatically.

Modern Database Structure
All process data including the curves
can be stored in a database.
All common database formats such as
Oracle, MS SQL and Access are sup-
ported. A separate database is created
for each station. Programs can be
stored and re-used at any time.
Since the program changes can be
traced, this provides 100 % traceability
throughout the entire production.
The database can be analyzed using
the DB Viewer with its extensive
querying and ltering options. Graphs
can be superimposed on each other
for comparisons and analyses.

PROMESS offers a range of custom
plugins for its powerful UFM V5.xx
programming software. These can be
connected to the software through the
.net interface. This allows the software
to be modied on a case-by-case basis
and optimized for specic applications
without having to update or change the
rmware. The expanded database is
also linked to the plugin.
Excerpt from the plugin library:
n UFMR Calibrate
The UFMR Calibrate plugin was de-
veloped for calibrating force
transducers in the joining modules.
The integrated range calibration of the
digital PROMESS preamplier PDM
supports 2-point calibration as well as
characteristic diagram calibration.
Calibration can be performed most
simply using the PROMESS calibra-
tion set that contains a reference force
transducer and the KT-V5 evaluation
unit with display.
The KT-V5 is connected to the USB
port of the computer and operated
using the UFM in order to read in the
values of the reference force. The
characteristics of the reference force
transducer are automatically detected
by the integrated TED5 and written to a
calibration log that can be exported in
Excel format.
However, the calibration can also be
performed using external calibration
equipment. In this case, the base point
values of the reference transducer are
entered manually.
n UFMR Barcode
The UFMR Barcode plugin can be used
to change the program within the UFM
software using a barcode scanner. While
the program runs, the barcode scanner
can be used, for instance, to transfer a
Part ID using the UFM dialog function.
The UFMR QDE plugin
allows quality assurance
data to be exported to the QS-STAT
statistics software from Q-DAS
and supports process monitoring
and optimization. Measurement,
auxiliary and description data can
be exported from each joining
program as characteristic data.
The UFMR IPM plugin
makes it possible to
export process and measurement data
to the IPM process data management
from CSP and thus supports process
monitoring and optimization.
Calibration plugin
n URMR XML-Writer
PROMESS developed the XML
Writer plugin for exporting process,
measurement and graph data as well
as other variables. The XML les can
be subjected to further processing and
