  • Finishing tools

    Our range of robotic finishing tools consists of 30 different models. Each tool is designed to address a specific task. From robotic deburring, milling, and finishing to applications such as brushing, chamfering, cutting/sawing, filling, grinding, milling, polishing and tapping. For each application, there is a unique tool – drill, mill, brush, saw, grinding wheel designed to meet that specific need.

    Most tools include axial compliance which allows for better force control to be applied to the surface to be processed. A pressure regulator is used to adjust – regulate the force needed throughout the process.

    By utilizing the compliance detection feature, tool wear can be monitored thereby guaranteeing that the job needed to be performed is always done within the performance limit of the tool.

    For 30+ years, these unique features have provided numerous advantages and benefits to a host of satisfied users in key industries such as foundry, plastics, automotive, cutlery…

  • Grippers

    The movements of production equipment are not as complicated as they may seem, they consist of a combination of simple movements such as chucking, linear transferring, rotating, sealing, and welding. In order to address these conditions, NKE has created the unique concept of FAS (Flexible Assembly Systems) by means of BBS (Building Block System). For this reason, we have focused not only on developing standardized components, but have been developing new solutions to address the individual needs of our customers. NKE stands ready to support your organization in the planning, installing, and supporting of its automated manufacturing needs.

    And now, you can automate your own production process economically and in a short lead time by utilizing NKE’s building block component system.

  • Magnetic tools

    Magnetic tools bring the power and versatility to the automation world, offering significant new capabilities and tremendous improvements to end of arm tooling, pick-and-place, handling and many other applications.

    The powerful and lightweight tools make it possible to implement magnets where they weren’t previously applied. One application greatly benefitting from the use of magnetic technology is end of arm gripping and handling. Costly vacuum cups and traditional pin clamps are now replaced. Expensive energy use and breakage problems are also far away.

    Worldwide famous brands from automotive and construction industries are now using magnetic tools in their plants. Would you handle or fabricate steel using automation ? You will find solutions and savings with magnetic tools that you never knew were possible.

    Thanks to our extensive range of magnets units and the corresponding accessories offer, you will always find a solution that suits your magnetic gripping application.

  • FORJ - Fiber Optic Rotary Joints

    FORJ or Fiber Optic Rotary Joints aims at transferring optical signal from a fixed structure to a rtotating one without twisting the fiber and while ensuring optimal performance. There are as much FORJ types as there are different types of optical fiber, several parameters may change as fiber material, fiber type (singlemode or multimode), wavelength or jacket and connectors. Each FORJ can be tailored to the corresponding application needs.

    Fiber optics based solution are more and more common in the general industry for many reasons. Fiber optic based transmission offers higher data rates that copper ones while being immune to electromagnetic interference. Optical Rotary Joints release the optical link from its mechanical constraints while maintaining the above-mentionned benefits. FORJ can reach rotating speeds up to 2000rpm for single-channel models (1 fiber) or 400 rpm for multi-channel ones (up to 50 fibers in a single rotary joint).

    FORJ can be used for video signal transmission through brushless motors in camera turrets, but also for sensors signal tranmission exposed to electrmagnetic fields such as generators (wind turbine) or electrical motors environment (mobile structures). They can be combined with electrical slip rings and/or rotary unions in order to transmit the necessary electrical power for motors or simply the corresponding optical transmission  peripherals or even air and other fluids.

    The Fiber Optic Rotary Joints offered by PES S.A. are completely designed, manufactured and tested by Princetel, Inc.
