Chucking System Simplifies Workholding Changes
The Duro-NCSE Flex power chuck from Röhm Products of America provides a quick, simple way to change out jaws and clamping tools.
Electrical Clamping System Reduces Energy Usage
The EVS 50 electrical clamping system, part of Röhm’s e-Quipment line of clamping and gripping systems, activates power chucks on turning and grinding machines without hydraulics or pneumatics.
Hybrid Chucks Reduce Downtime
Rohm’s MZMF hybrid chuck is a combination of a three-jaw manual chuck and a round, magnetic support plate. By combining the two technologies, workpieces of various sizes can be evenly and securely clamped and machined from three sides, the company says. Clamping, before turning or grinding operations, is carried out in seconds, minimizing machine downtime.
Quick-Change Workholding System
The company offers the RMS workholding quick-change system for manual- and power-operated clamping devices. According to the company, the system is designed to allow the fast and accurate change from, for example, power chuck to power operated (via drawbar) mandrels to manual chucks or face drivers. The company supplies a short taper mount receiver, which is permanently installed to the machine spindle.
Quick Change Workholding For Hard-To-Hold Parts
This pwer chuck features direct transmission of the piston force to the jaws in the area of the jaw guides. The axial actuating force is transmitted to the jaws without major friction loss.
KZF-S Collet Chuck
RÖHM Power-Operated Chucks Deliver Secure Holding for Gear Grinding
RÖHM Products of America now offers a powered external clamping chuck for gear surface face grinding. The KZF-S collet chuck is especially well suited for clamping gears/workpieces that have an external plane or gear teeth geometries accessible from the outside. Additionally, the chuck allows face and ID diameters to be turned or ground concentric to outer gear pitch diameters.
The compact KZF-S chuck provides high clamping forces, optimal workpiece stability and maximum axial accuracy achieved via axial draw-in of the workpiece against a rigid work stop. The chuck maintains its centrifugal force for extremely smooth rotation of less than 0.01 mm.
KZF-S chucks have modular designs that feature case-hardened components for maximum versatility and low maintenance. The workholding system features a grommet for the integration of air or coolant and a sealed lubrication channel to eliminate chip penetration.
Available in three sizes, the KZF-S chucks accommodate diameters ranging from 30 mm to 180 mm. A simple bayonet connector enables users to quickly retrofit clamping sleeves to different diameters, and an intermediate adaptor with adjustment screws enables DIN55026 or optional A5-A8 mounting.
Power-Grip Zero Point Clamping System
New Power-Grip Zero Point Clamping System from RÖHM Clamps and Palletizes
The Power-Grip Zero Point Clamping System from RÖHM Products of America delivers both palletizing and clamping capabilities – all with one device and in single setups for part processing. The new modular palletizing system can significantly increase productivity, process reliability and precision, as well as cut set-up times by up to 90 percent. It is especially well-suited for individual part and small series production environments where workpiece clamping is typically time consuming and costly.
The Power-Grip Zero Point Clamping System is customizable to make the best use of a machine tool’s entire work-envelope space. Machine tool output also increases because the system allows workpieces to be positioned and clamped on the pallet outside the machine tool while it continues to work. This makes for significant reductions in time spent for set up and pallet changes.
For workpieces requiring several machining operations, the new system’s pallets maintain the zero point as parts move from one operation to the next. In everyday use, the system holds accuracy to +/- 0.002 mm thanks to a cushioned, conical centering and levelling system.
The Power-Grip Zero Point Clamping System retains its holding strength and zero-point clamping accuracy even in thermal changes and through various different part processes. And with corrosion-resistant surfaces, the pallets can go from conventional machining coolants to electrical discharge machining (EDM) deionized water to a measuring machine and be rust free.
Manufacturers gain substantial benefits when they obtain pallet and clamping systems from single-source suppliers such as RÖHM. With the company’s standard clamping devices, users can combine prefabricated pallets into modular systems. RÖHM standard pallets for vices and chucks also eliminate having to use complex clamping devices or pallets.
RÖHM Products of America has been a leading provider of high-quality clamping and gripping technologies to the North American metalworking industry since 1978.
A division of the Germany-based RÖHM Group, which was founded in 1909, RÖHM Products of America has more than 10,000 products to choose from, including drill chucks, live centers, lathe chucks, vises, automation technology, power chuck technology, mandrels, tool clamping systems and customized solutions for turning, milling, drilling and grinding applications.
The company also provides unmatched service and support that ensures maximum productivity for its manufacturing customers across a range of market segments, including aerospace, automotive, energy, engineering, micro technology and rail vehicle.
AGILIS Clamping System
RÖHM’s Precision Cartridge Mandrel Offers High Accuracy for Internal Clamping
RÖHM Products of America recently introduced the lightweight, compact AGILIS power-operated cartridge mandrel clamping system. This new mandrel provides consistent, rigid workpiece ID clamping of very small diameters for grinding, turning, milling, drilling and measuring applications.
The AGILIS’s mandrels axially draw in workpieces against a rigid workstop and hold workpieces with diameters as small as 10 mm with concentricity tolerances well within 0.01 mm. The clamping system’s sturdy design includes hardened clamping segments and guides that deliver uniform performance throughout long production runs. For flexibility, AGILIS is compatible with both 269-90 and 267-20 types of intermediate flanges.
An available manual quick-change system cuts the time needed to switch out clamping devices on the AGILIS. The quick-change system employs adapter plates to accommodate RMS quick-clamping screws. With quick-clamping screws, operators can complete manual clamping changes in approximately 30 seconds, all while maintaining positioning accuracy within 0.005 mm. The manual quick-change technology enables the use of central lubrication and airflow measurement devices.
RZM Centric Vice
Robust RZM Centric Vice from RÖHM Improves 5-axis Machining Accuracy
The compact RZM Centric Vice from RÖHM Products of America provides exceptional workholding rigidity and contributes significantly to higher accuracy 5-axis machining.
The vise features clamping jaws positioned relatively high and a horizontal spindle situated at the top of the vise and closer to the jaws for unmatched stability. The jaws are shorter and complement the vise’s overall compact height of only 7.7” to keep interference to a minimum, while RÖHM’s special double jaw-guidance system ensures precision positioning.
The double jaw-guidance system moves jaws smoothly along their axes to accommodate a wide range of part sizes without having to remount the jaws. In operation, the first jaw moves along an outside guideway as the second jaw travels on an inside one. This quasi-telescopic arrangement allows for a greater guidance length without placing any significant limits on machining operations. When fully opened, the RZM presents little, if any, interference, and its telescoping design allows the jaws to close to the zero point.
For small or fragile parts, RÖHM’s SKB claw jaws are an idea attachment for the RZM. These jaws securely clamp unfinished parts at depths as shallow as 0.078". Hardened claws on the jaws create an interlocking hold for extremely strong clamping, but with minimal required force and only a slight loss of material.
