Economical Self Centering Vise for 5 Axis Machining
We are proud of the new addition to the FTool product line: CentroClamp. This economical 5 axis clamping unit can be used as is or palletized to prepare for your future in automation. The CentroClamp is sold with standard jaws, which can be moved in 12mm increments.Your local EROWA/FTool representative can provide all of the details.
The EROWA Robot Dynamic was designed to be expandable to suit your needs. The transfer unit can stand on the floor next to one machine or several machines or placed on a rail to serve up to 8 machines. In addition, the Robot Dynamic has overcome the issue of automating machines that can only be loaded from the front with our unique D axis. Ideal for small and large workpieces, with a lifting capacity of up to 550lbs.Click on the link below the picture for more details or call your local EROWA representative.
FTool - Precision Tooling on a Budget
We proudly respresent the Swiss made FTool product line for the North American continent. The product line consists of WEDM, EDM and machining precision work holding. Budgets are tight these days and FTool can be an economical solution for your work holding needs. Click on the link below the picture for more details on the WEDM kit and other FTool products.
|EROWA Technology, Inc.|
Erowa Technology, Inc. is a full service supplier of palletization and automation systems for the North American manufacturing market. Our goal is to provide complete turnkey solutions for precision parts handling through most any group of manufacturing processes (from one type of machine to the next). We are capable of providing a simple manual palletization system or a fully integrated, custom designed workholding and automation system to meet the current needs and expectations of our customers.
Wherever metal is cut in production, there are chips. They are trapped in all the grooves and corners and impair the working order of the chucks. In addition, this contamination also has an adverse influence on the precision of automatic and unsupervised workpiece holder changes. EROWA 72 holders offer the optimal solution for autonomous production. The use of EROWA 72 holders and chuck covers provides maximum protection against the penetration of dirt and chips into the EROWA ITS table chucks. They offer security and precision in daily use. EROWA 72 holders are compatible with all EROWA ITS chucks, are easily automated and are prepared for the EROWA EWIS identification chip. The chuck covers will provide optimal protection against contamination even in extreme conditions.
EROWA Technology introduces the versatile ITS Chuck 100P. Erowa’s proven 0.002mm repeatability and 4 x 90 degree indexable design makes this a great addition to the Integrated Tooling System family. There are a variety of seals available to allow this chuck to be submerged in a WEDM, subjected to dielectric fluids or in the harsh environment of the powdered metal industry. This chuck allows the palletization of up to a 170 x 170 x 170mm workpieces to move through the different manufacturing processes of your shop. Some of the key features of the ITS Chuck 100P are its low profile design, ease of use in an automation set up and that it can be operated manually or automatically.
Automation for EDM
The Erowa Robot Dynamic (ERD) for automated EDM is designed can be adapted and extended time and again.

Two Erowa workholding devices can help mold shops save time and work more efficiently.
A Big-Picture View of Micromachining
Matrix Tooling makes injection molds for components that have features you cannot see.
Cell Controller Boosts Production Flexibility
By serving as the “brains” of a cell consisting of two machining centers and a work delivery system, cell control software from Erowa helps this manufacturer run lights-out 24/7 and achieve 90-percent spindle utilization.
Beyond Milling or Grinding
Ultrasonic machining opens new possibilities for NASA engineers using previously unmachinable materials.
How Do You Equip a Startup Micromachining Shop?
A response to a reader’s question includes a checklist for launching a small shop focused on micromachining.
Fully Automatic Manufacturing Cell
Erowa Technology offers its Robot Dynamic modular system, which can be extended in all directions at any time.
Find Your Speed Outside of Machining
This short-lead-time mold shop achieves its most significant time savings by looking outside the machining cycle. However, one of those elements outside the cycle—palletized setup—ultimately led to cycle time savings via five-axis machining.
The 148 P/i Self-Centering Vise offers precise part clamping with a flexible clamping range.
A Micro Machine Design
This machine has no toolholders and no tombstone—but there is a camera. Here are details of a machining center designed for micromachining.
Too Small To Touch
Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.
HSM Technology Enables Mold Maker To Boost Productivity
Founded in 1959, Advance Mold and Manufacturing, Inc. (AM&M) is located in a temperature-controlled production facility in Manchester, Connecticut. The 30,000-square-foot building also houses Vision Technical Molding (VTM), a custom molding operation specializing in complex, tight-tolerance medical products. VTM also QC-samples AM&M's molds. Although the two sides are separate businesses, they are also partners, connected within the same building. AM&M occupies 18,000 square feet of the building and employs 65 people working two shifts, 6 days per week.
On The Path To Automation
Implementing an integrated tooling system proved to be this mold shop's first step toward automated operation of its electrical discharge machines and graphite mills. Today, the shop's robotic cells can run around the clock in an unattended mode.
Electrode Machining Set Free
These two shops used to mill EDM electrodes on their metal cutting machines, but they have now shifted the work to graphite machining centers. Both shops say the advantage isn’t just in the cycle time savings, it’s in the inefficiencies they can now overcome.
Can Palletizing Reduce Your Setup?
Locating and securing blanks and then unloading finished workpieces can take a significant amount of setup time. For some applications, palletizing workpieces off-line and then clamping them in common receivers can achieve dramatic setup reductions.
