The CentroteX System from Hainbuch America is designed to process multiple parts of varying sizes that require various clamping methods.

A precision-machined adaptor/flange plate is aligned with centrex interface, and comes equipped with a bayonet mount and a drawtube adapter. This in turn accommodates a variety of chucks and holding devices that can be connected and locked by six fasteners. According to the company, change-over time of the system is less than six minutes. The system is designed to maintain repeatability and has a change-over accuracy of 0.002 mm.

The system features a Monteq mounting aid for large and heavy clamping devices. The mounting aid is designed to offer improved balance and ease of component handling during change-over through the use of a suspension bar on a lathe or an overhead crane. Gradations on the device assist in the alignment of the horizontal axis, and non-threaded quick-action bolts secure the workholding device for loading or removal.

The system is equipped with a clamping device container that is customized to hold chucks or other equipment when not in use. The unit moves on heavy-duty casters, and features a retractable hood to shut out contaminants and maintain the integrity of the stored components.
