Techniks will showcase a variety of workholding products, including magnetic chucks designed to reduce mold setup and change-over time, and allow machining on five sides. Suitable for a variety of milling, drilling, through-hole drilling and boring operations on a range of mold and other workpiece sizes, the chucks are available in a variety of shapes and sizes that can easily integrate with pallet-changing systems.

The company’s SFS12 modular shrink-fit adapters feature an internal drawbar design for improved holding power and faster tool changes. Well-suited for mold and die applications, the adapters are available for tool shanks ranging from 1/8" to ½" and fit CAT 40/50, BT 30/40 and HSK 40E holders. They also can be used with other types of modular shrink-fit systems.

Techniks also offers mold clamping magnets for virtually all sizes of injection molding machines. According to the company, magnets take up less space than traditional clamping methods, leaving room for larger molds. Uniform clamping power helps eliminate mold deformation, and powerful rare-earth magnets ensure that molds stay firmly clamped even in the event of a power outage.
