Control systems

MultiPro 3G

Modern high-end control system for hand-held nutrunners and
built-in nutrunners of the DS series with direct torque measurement and for all press-in units of the QMP / SMP series.

DSM breaks new ground with the MultiPro 3G.
Because in addition to the hardware extensions, it is above all the scalable firmware that determines the scope of performance of the control system. For this purpose, a licence management system was embedded in the firmware architecture.

The active firmware (tighten or press-in) is already equipped with a large number of basic functions, but can be tailored to the customer’s needs or process requirements by means of the extension level, the tool licences and the function extensions.

Function extensions

Flexible in price and performance with the DSM licence model
… only as much as you actually need.

  • Result selection – With the result selection you specify the result values for the evaluation of the process. This will evaluate the result relevant to your process.
  • Unit adjustable – The unit of torque / force can be set.
  • Filter – DSM filter functions for blending out high-frequency (unwanted) interferences of the measuring signal.
  • Gradient detection – Function for detection of a defined gradient, detects positive as well as negative peaks and their quantity.
  • Direct control via fieldbus – Controls the DSM tool by the specifications in the dynamic fieldbus protocol via fieldbus with the PLC.
  • Cyclic values via fieldbus – The measured values selected in the dynamic fieldbus are transmitted cyclically to the fieldbus in real time.
  • Parameter via fieldbus (dynamic) – Defined parameters of a stage can be temporarily modified at runtime via the fieldbus.
  • Parameter via fieldbus (static) – Defined parameters of a stage can be permanently modified via the field bus.
  • Correction factor MD / F – The correction factor serves to matching the torque / force.
  • Envelope – Additional evaluation element for control of the process. The measuring curve may not break the upper and/or lower envelope.
  • Linearisation MD – Linearisation / multi-range calibration Torque with higher accuracy requirements for specific torque points.
  • Linearisation WI – Linearisation / multi-range calibration Rotation angle to compensate for occurring torsional losses.
  • Yield strength procedure – Tighten until the defined switch-off gradient is reached.
  • Head contact – Tighten to head contact with the specially developed DSM algorithm for head contact detection for self-forming / self-tapping tightening processes.
  • Thread entry detection – Rotation against the screw-in direction – detection of the jump of thread entry into the first thread by using a length measuring sensor.
  • Turn in to external sensor – Tightening until a defined external target value is reached with monitoring of torque and angle of rotation.
  • Turn and hold – After switch-off, the torque or the position (angle of rotation) measured at this time is held for a defined period of time.
  • Linearisation F – Linearisation / multi-range calibration Force with higher accuracy requirements for specific force points.
  • Linearisation L – Linearisation / multi-range calibration Length (stroke) for compensation of load-dependent deflection.
  • Press and hold – After switch-off, the force or the position (length) measured at this time is held for a defined period of time.
  • External length – Direct and high-precision measurement on the component with an external length sensor; measures the actual stroke (relative height), regardless of influences such as bending, different heights or tolerances on the tool carrier.
  • Move to gradient – Move until the defined switch-off gradient [kN/ms] is reached – display of the gradient curve with the second Y axis. Control of force and length.
  • Review window – The function can be used to generate a window within a procedure, which is defined by means of a start and end value and evaluated retrospectively.

Basic modules

MultiPro 3G

The basic module supplies the MultiPro 3G control module and the connected DSM tool (nutrunner / press-in unit). In addition the basic module regulates and monitors the drive and controls the voltage and status of the hall sensor as well as the temperature, current and voltage of the servomotor.

The basic module is divided into different types due to the different performance requirements and is assigned to the DSM tools in a fixed manner. The unit with the safety function STO (Safe Torque Off) is ready for integration into a customer‘s protection concept.

Always switch off safely – we equipp our press-in systems with basic modules in STO design as standard in accordance with the norm DIN EN ISO 13849.

Flexible in application – the modular system concept not only allows to change the control module (e.g. upgrade to MultiPro 3G), but also allows the basic module to be replaced when process conditions change.
