The Quadrok plus clamping system from Hainbuch is designed for five-sided machining in one setup and is capable of clamping parts for operations ranging from simple saw cuts to complex cast housings. The system features a high-precision carriage guide, combination clamping insert with serrated and smooth clamping surfaces, fixed master jaws, and a chip-safe drive mechanism. Workpieces ranging to 250 mm can be securely accommodated with the two clamping units, the company says. Various chucking and adjustment options are available.

The system is said to offer highly rigid workpiece clamping through active pull-back with the jaws reliably pulling the blank in the middle, repeatability of less than 0.01 mm in all axes, and compensating large material tolerances ranging to ±1.0 mm. According to the company, setup can be completed within 2 min. with the use of the optional fast jaw change.
