Low-cost introduction into the square pole technology

Magnetic Clamping Technology

Lauffen/Neckar, (PresseBox) - By means of comprehensive standardization, SCHUNK, the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems succeeded in providing a very economic introduction of the square pole technology to the average consumer. The investment costs for square pole plates of the MAGNOS Performance Line are 40% lower than conventional, multi-purpose modifiable MAGNOS square pole plates. According to SCHUNK, this series will be of particular interest for all users, who will benefit from the advantages of magnetic clamping technology for the first time, or who will use the clamping chucks for their applications in a targeted manner. In comparison to regular square pole plates, the MAGNOS Performance Line from the innovative family-owned company is far superior. SCHUNK solely achieves the efficiency effect by reducing the diversity of variants. Therefore the Performance Line is limited to the requested pole size 50 MFR-A1, and the three sizes 400 x 400 mm, 400 x 600 mm, and 400 x 800. Individual modifications are not offered for this price/performance optimized version by the manufacturer.

5-sided machining with no interfering contours

The Performance Line offers a wide range of possibilities to the user. Worn out plates can be ground down by up to 3 mm. Moreover, the square pole plates of the Performance Line can be combined with the VERO-S quick-change pallet system from SCHUNK, and can be quickly exchanged on machine tools. SCHUNK offers a price-optimized control unit type KSS-01 for this new series. Moreover, all the other types of MAGNOS control units and the complete MAGNOS accessory program is available. The clamping plates are suitable for milling, drilling, and for flat grinding. They also allow five-sided machining of a workpiece in one set-up so that pockets and through-holes can be milled or drilled without damaging the magnetic clamping plate. The mono block design of the MAGNOS square pole plates ensure high stability and rigidity, and thereby minimizes vibrations while improving the surface quality. Combined with moveable pole extensions, they allow for extremely smooth and deformation-free clamping cycles.
