PFAS (Parts Forming Assist System)
When the transfer has a blank that is an abnormal shape, the PFAS assists by ensuring that the blank is transported to the next station. This can even be done during high speed operation. It is especially useful when handling parts in which the chucking is unstable (short parts, large headed parts).
The oscillating movement of the slide shaft is carried through the KO lever before it is changed to the back and forth movement of the PFAS.
The guide pin becomes the X-axis parallel transfer guide.
