Schunk’s Vero-S NSL quick-change workholding and positioning system is designed to speed setups with the ability to mount any workholding on top, from a standard vise to a custom fixture, for reliable and consistent change-over. For a micron-precise connection between machine table and workpiece, the clamping system makes optimal use of even smaller machine tables, the company says. The Vero-S quick-change pallet system delivers fast and precise resetting of workpieces, clamping devices and other equipment on three-, four- or five-axis machining centers.

Workpieces can be directly clamped and machined from five sides without restricting accessibility. This is done by screwing the clamping pins of the quick-change pallet system directly into the workpiece. The components are then quickly exchanged in the machine, positioned, fixed and clamped all in one step with a repeat accuracy of less than 0.005 mm. The clamping height of the workpieces can be adjusted with module height extensions, so the machine spindle can reach all five sides of the workpiece without any special tools.
