SAFE CLAMPING OF HEAVY DIES 4631

Roemheld will introduce at MACH 2018 a new range of wedge clamping elements with patented safety bolts designed to attach a die set to the table and ram of a power press securely, regardless of whether the tool edges are straight or angled. A positive locking action allows even a heavy upper die to remain in place during maintenance or if the clamping pressure drops.

The clamps move automatically, making them easy to operate. A position control feature verifies closure and release and reports if no die has been placed or if the edge is incorrectly set

ROEMHELD TO LAUNCH NEW WORKPIECE CLAMPING AND MANIPULATION EQUIPMENT

The Roemheld stand (H6-175) at MACH 2018 will be split into sectors to show market-driven examples of how workholding can increase competitiveness and maximise investment in machine tools. There will be areas focusing on automotive, aerospace, medical and general manufacturing plus a dedicated material handling section.

The emphasis will be on increasing production efficiency through proven technology and innovation, ensuring that any investment is spent wisely. Roemheld will also be offering to supply demonstration products so the user can benefit from the established ‘Try before you Buy’ offer, which guarantees that any investment in workholding will meet a manufacturer's needs, both now and in the future.

VICE HOLDS CYLINDRICAL OR PRISMATIC PARTS FOR 5-AXIS MACHINING

The PC80Z self-centring vice from Roemheld is available in a new, two-in-one version that accepts the manufacturer's optional round inserts, enabling cylindrical components or billets from 44 to 95 mm in diameter to be clamped securely. There is now no need for a machinist to buy a bespoke workholding solution or machine sets of soft jaws to hold parts of different diameters.

The vice can be converted back within a couple of minutes to its conventional role of holding prismatic components. It simply requires the Allen bolts holding four round inserts to be unscrewed and the pair of straight, 80 mm wide jaws to be reinstated. Parts from 17 to 139 mm long can then be secured for metalcutting using the 62 mm clamping stroke.
