Minimizing the number of operations and part set-ups is well recognized as a key component for accuracy and productivity. Palletized systems allow parts to be run over multiple machines fully automated – finished piece in one set-up. Keys to these systems are pallets that automatically lock in-place with extreme precision and workholding that can present 5-sides of a part clear for machining.
Zero-Point systems solve pallet changing – magnetic chucking solves workholding.
The new NG-ZP chucks combine these technologies into a single integrated unit. A part loaded on a magnetic ZP pallet can be stored, handled robotically and processed through multiple operations without ever breaking the original set-up. Single set-up, ultimate accuracy, maximum productivity!
