Hydraulic Clamping Module Ideal for Demanding Maching Operations
Schunk launches a hydraulic clamping module for machines with pallet changer that combines compact dimensions, high pull-down forces, an integrated lifting function and a complete monitoring function.
Schunk launches a hydraulic clamping module for machines with pallet changer that combines compact dimensions, high pull-down forces, an integrated lifting function and a complete monitoring function. The fully sealed Vero-S NSP 140 is compact so that it can be also used for thin change pallets. With an immense pull-down force and solid screw connections, it offers ample potential for demanding machining operations.
In order to ensure maximum process reliability during the automated pallet change, the module comes standard equipped with a pallet system control, clamping slide monitoring for querying the clamping state, as well as a cleaning function for the contact surfaces.
The piston stroke is additionally monitored via sensors. High lifting of the pallet and optional precentering also ensure process-reliable pallet changes in combination with media transfers. Clamping rings in flange design shorten the alignment process for the pallets, and reduce pallets costs.
The module also includes features such as stepped contact surfaces, integrated blow off cleaning function, integrated lifting function, integrated pre-centering, pallet presence monitoring, monitoring of clamping slide positions via dynamic pressure and sensory monitoring of piston position.
With moldmaking the focus is on injection molding or other mold types that use wire EDM or CNC machining centers to create the mold components. Your typical machining center weighs several tons and has a relatively small working envelope compared to a CNC router. The mill’s massive construction lends itself to machining rigid materials with very tight tolerances. While this type of CNC is suited for injection molding components, it isn’t always the ideal tool for the job when we broaden our scope of moldmaking and the current opportunities in the marketplace
Here are techniques commonly used to combat chatter and guidelines to establish a foundation for optimizing the moldmaking process.
Mold performance and durability depends on mold base quality, and hole making is a crucial step in the process.
