Schunk’s Magnos magnetic clamping technology is composed of parallel pole, square pole, and radial pole plates that ensure workpiece clamping, workpiece changes, and processes in grinding applications. Among other things, the square pole grinding plates are said to boost productivity by up to 200 percent, compared to conventional solutions using parallel pole technology.

Movable pole extensions ensure uniform, deformation-free clamping by allowing flat workpieces to be ground micron-precise with regard to flatness and parallelism. Multiple grinding operations, repeated changes to the clamping configuration, and time-consuming mounting are no longer necessary with this square pole technology.

The compensating magnetic chucks are equipped with adhesive force regulation as standard to enable individual adjustment of their adhesive force to the workpiece in question. The magnetic chuck design makes it possible to machine even extra-hardened workpieces, and then remove them from the magnetic chuck.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.

  • Holding Small Parts for Effective Machining on a CNC Router

    A non-woven porous material with a special coating enables vacuum chucks and tables to hold sheets of metal and other materials more effectively on CNC routing machines. The material, called Vilmill, is used as a substrate between the sheet or plate material to be machined and a suitable vacuum table or vacuum chuck where it is held securely in place by the vacuum.
