The new carbon-fiber clamping devices for machining­ centers are as much as two-thirds lighter than the standard versions, but provide greater strength and rigidity with identical clamping force values, the company says. The force-actuated TOPlus and the manually actuated Torok clamp versions enable faster spindle acceleration for faster machine cycle times. In addition, their low-weight reduces machine energy consumption. The lightweight version of the manual-actuation Manok plus stationary chuck is designed for implementation on milling machines and machining centers with low load weight. Its aluminum flange and carbon-fiber base structure offer a weight reduction of approximately two-thirds relative to the standard chuck version. Plus, the carbon-fiber model facilitates dynamic machining on five-axis machines in addition to offering lower energy consumption and smaller centrifugal forces.
