Self-Centering Vises Clamp Parts for Five-Axis Machining
Hirschmann offers self-centering vises designed to quickly and accurately clamp different types of workpieces for five-sided machining.

High Speed Leads to Lights-Out
This mold maker has become more competitive by establishing a high speed machining process that is predictable enough to confidently run lights-out.

Hirschmann Acquires Manufacturer of EDM Tables, Spindles
The Hirschmann Group (Flourn-Winzeln, Germany) parent company of Hirschmann Engineering USA (Schaumburg, Illinois) has taken over the insolvent JuachSchmider (Villingendorf, Germany). A holding company, JS, has been established to continue the transactions of JauchSchmider.    The takeover combines both companies’ lines of submersible single- and multi-axis rotary tables and spindles for EDM, which will now be available from Hirschmann.

Tips for Controlling Oxidation and Pitting on a Wire EDM
Additives, machine settings, workpiece materials and current technology are factors in avoiding common problems with unwanted rust and surface defects.

Hirschmann Moves HQ
Hirschmann Engineering, a manufacturer of tooling, workholding, metalworking fluid and other products, has relocated its U. S.


Self-Centering Vise
Hirschmann Engineering’s self-centering vise is designed for use in the System 9000 zero point reference system. This precision, self-centering vise provides a universal method of quickly clamping different types of workpieces for five-sided machining, the company says.

Flexible Automation Solutions
Hirschmann Automation’s Erobot product line, which includes simple loaders and Fanuc six-axis robots, offers automation solutions with increased productivity for both EDM and CNC machining centers. Normally installed next to the machine, the automation equipment manages the loading and unloading of workpieces and/or tools usually by M code.

Flexible Automation Solutions For Machine Tools
Hirschmann offers automation solutions to produce parts in small and large quantities with shorter lead times. The Erobot series is an adaptable solution for EDM and CNC machine tools.

Rotary Indexing Spindle For EDM
Hirschmann Engineering has combined the H80R. MNCM high speed rotary indexing spindle with the H1625. AC3 fully programmable, variable speed AC control to produce miniature, round parts with small diameters and fine finishes.

Exploring Niches With New EDM Technologies
A shop specializing in wire EDM for large mold components now offers EDM “turning” of small, intricate parts. Despite the potential risks involved in early adoption of new technologies, the shop believes this practice gives it a leg-up on the competition and lets it gain experience with alternative machining techniques before offering them to customers.

High speed rotary spindle

Micro "Turning" Using Wire EDM
A high speed rotary spindle allows a wire EDM unit to turn round parts with diameters as small as 0.002 inches to a finish of 0.2 Ra while maintaining accurate concentricity.

Applying Creative Workholding Techniques
Not all parts can be fixtured by conventional workholding methods. Here are a few examples of ways that shops secure feisty workpieces for milling and turning operations.

Efficiency increased throught automation

Making Strides To Maximize Worker Efficiency
This 40-year-old shop combines original best practices with new technologies and manufacturing approaches to make the most of its home-grown skilled labor.

How To Handle Tall Wire EDM Work
Modular workpiece fixturing plays a vital role in this shop’s quest to win larger, more difficult wire EDM jobs.

Hirschmann Engineering USA

Hirschmann Engineering, USA, Inc. offers this precision self centering vise allowing a cost effective and universal method to quickly clamp different types of work pieces for five sided machining. The vise comes mounted on a pallet and is ready for use in our System 9000 Zero Point reference system for manual or automated loading. Depending on the Zero Point clamper used, it can be quickly and accurately clamped parallel to the machine table or at 45° and 90° indexes. The standard 80mm width reversible jaws allow a wide range of clamping possibilities for part sizes 0 to 190mm in length our width. Optional available jaws include Prism Jaw replacements for holding rounds, Raw Jaws that can be milled to match part geometry and Universal Jaws with additional features. Optional jaws of 125mm width are also available for support of wider work pieces. The vise can easily adapted to hold multiple parts simultaneously by using the optional Twin-load Jaws which come in three different heights. . For automation up to sixteen of the H9.1613ZSK.GP vise can be used in the HIRSCHMANN EROBOT series machine loaders as well as Fanuc 6 axes robots.
