Jergen’s zero-point clamping system is designed to reduce setup time while increasing accuracy and repeatability. Combining ease of alignment, high-accuracy positioning and high clamping forces with hydraulic or pneumatic actuation, the clamping system offers individual modules, complete systems and plates, design assistance and technical assistance.

According to the manufacturer, the system reduces complicated machine setup procedures into a single step. The action of unlocking and removing the clamping device has been simplified, and the system virtually eliminates the need to search for the bore, minimizing the risk of damage to high-precision, zero-point bores and nipples.

The compact clamping system is said to provide excellent holding and pull-in forces. The balls roll freely in the form-fitting ball channel, allowing them to reposition themselves so that heavy fixtures self-align. All components are made of stainless steel.
