EV Assembly: Promess Inc. Pressing Systems for Seamless Pin Pressing

In the world of modern manufacturing, precision and efficiency reign supreme. When it comes to intricate processes like pin pressing, especially in sectors such as Electric vehicle production, EV assembly, electronics and automotive, maintaining tight tolerances and ensuring flawless results is non-negotiable. This is where CPS’s Promess Inc. Pressing Systems step in, offering cutting-edge solutions that not only meet these demands but exceed them.

Compliant Pin Pressing: A Cornerstone of Modern Manufacturing

Compliant pin pressing is a critical process in various industries, particularly in electronics assembly and automotive manufacturing. The quality of pin connections directly affects the overall functionality and reliability of electronic devices and mechanical components. Traditional methods of pin pressing often involve the risk of misaligned pins, bent pins, or inconsistent connections, leading to faulty products and costly rework. CPS’s Promess Inc. Pressing Systems address these challenges head-on, providing a comprehensive solution that ensures precision, reliability, and efficiency.

Pressing Printed Circuit Boards to Inverter Power Modules

In the realm of electronics manufacturing, one prime application of CPS’s Promess Inc. Pressing Systems is the pressing of printed circuit boards (PCBs) to inverter power modules. Inverters play a crucial role in converting direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) in devices such as solar inverters, motor drives, and uninterruptible power supplies. The connection between the PCB and the power module must be flawless to ensure optimal performance.

Promess Inc. Pressing Systems offer a level of control and accuracy that traditional methods can’t match. These systems ensure that the pins on the PCB align perfectly with the corresponding points on the power module, guaranteeing a secure and reliable connection. The integrated monitoring and feedback mechanisms enable real-time adjustments, eliminating the risk of misalignment or improper connection.

Ensuring Pin Fit and Detecting Bent Pins in Real Time

One of the standout features of CPS’s Promess Inc. Pressing Systems is their ability to press pins with precision while continuously monitoring the forces involved. This feature is invaluable in industries where pin connections are crucial, as it guarantees that the pins are not just properly aligned but also securely seated within their designated slots.

Additionally, the system’s advanced sensors and detectors are designed to identify bent pins and low pressing forces during the press fit operation. This real-time detection ensures that defective pins are identified early in the process, minimizing the chances of faulty connections going unnoticed. The system’s ability to stop the pressing motion upon detecting bent pins is a game-changer, preventing any further damage and allowing for immediate corrective action.

The Integration of Cutting-Edge Technology

CPS’s Promess Inc. Pressing Systems owe their exceptional capabilities to the integration of cutting-edge technology. Advanced sensors, precision servo motors, and real-time data analysis work in tandem to achieve unmatched levels of accuracy. The system’s adaptability allows it to accommodate various pin types, materials, and sizes, making it a versatile solution for a wide range of industries.


In the realm of modern manufacturing, where precision and reliability are paramount, CPS’s Promess Inc. Pressing Systems shine as a beacon of innovation. Their ability to ensure compliant pin pressing, press PCBs to power modules flawlessly, monitor pin fit in real time, and detect issues like bent pins sets them apart as an indispensable tool for various industries.

By investing in these pressing systems, manufacturers can elevate their production processes to new heights, significantly reducing defects, enhancing product quality, and ultimately improving customer satisfaction. As technology continues to advance, CPS’s Promess Inc. Pressing Systems stand as a testament to the power of innovation in shaping the future of manufacturing.

PF 6000+ Battery Tools

Choosing the right battery tools to meet your industrial tooling needs is a really important decision for any business. With years of research and real hands on experience, we’ve found Atlas Copco Low Reaction (LRT) handheld tools to be the very best battery tools available on today’s market.

Atlas Copco Low Reaction Battery Tools

The Atlas Copco Group is a world leader in innovative tooling and assembly solutions. Atlas Copco’s battery tools are ergonomically designed to promote comfort, efficiency and workplace safety.

What is a Low Reaction Tool?

A Low Reaction Tool (LRT) is a tool that eliminates reaction force, while maximizing user comfort and improving efficiency. As a result of inhibiting reaction force, LRTs are capable of delivering reliable and accurate high-speed tightening.

LRT Tool Benefits

Modular Design – all tools are modular, making battery swapping easy. Tensor tools are equipped with a universal multi-charger for all batteries, available in 18V and 36V. You can choose either voltage without compromising speed or quality of torque.

Less Service Time – new technology and design has increased overall performance and uptime, reducing oil leakage and minimizing separation of air and oil

Efficient ventilation – gives better heat dissipation that prevents tool from getting warm and overheating. The new Tensor motor not only keeps the tool cooler, but also boosts productivity by enabling it to achieve higher speeds.

Operator Feedback – battery status and alerts are quickly and easily communicated via LED alerts

Atlas Copco Tensor TBP

Atlas Copco TBP is an excellent solution if you’re looking to achieve maximum flexibility and high torque, with free speeds up to 6000 rpm. With TorqueBoost*, this tool benefits from active cooling and advanced motor steering, to allow torque to build quickly, thereby reducing build time.

Due to its low vibration, this tool is operator-friendly, saving workers from user fatigue and conditions like white fingers. By minimizing fatigue-related injuries, this tool contributes to  a safer work environment.

Atlas Copco Tensor SRB

Atlas Copco Tensor SRB is best suited for low reaction tightening with lower torque. A well-designed tool, the SRB is a low weight, well-balanced tool that sits comfortably in your hands. The ergonomic design helps considerably with preventing user fatigue, and the new motor boosts productivity by allowing you to reach speeds up to 1500 rpm.

Atlas Copco Tensor STR

Atlas Copco Tensor STR enhances efficiency with its dual accessory capability, where it can connect and power two accessories on the same tool. The modular components of the STR significantly reduces the need for back up and spare tools, as the STR tool base is interchangeable between models and sizes.

Atlas Copco Tensor STR Two Trigger Tool

With the Tensor STR Two Trigger Tool, tightenings can be completed with one tool instead of two, shortening cycle times and eliminating unnecessary steps. With this tool the user can pre-tighten with the upper trigger, and then tighten to target torque with the low trigger. Accurate and reliable, this tool has a market leading accuracy, increasing process reliability and minimizing risk of assembly problems.
