Gripping systems and clamping technology company Schunk Intec Ltd (www.gb.schunk.com
) will be demonstrating the capabilities of its Rota-S Plus chuck on stand S110
With an optimised wedge-bar drive system, a jaw-change time of less than 60sec and an improved lubricating system, this chuck ensures a consistently high clamping force that exceeds the performance of standard lathe chucks, allowing higher rotational speeds and cutting speeds to be used.
It is available in diameters of 165, 200, 250 and 315mm. On the tool-holding side, Schunk will be highlighting the benefits of its Tendo E compact hydraulic-expansion tool-holder.
Capable of reducing set-up times by up to 80% while accommodating 2,000Nm of torque, this delivers micron levels of precision and can improve tool life by as much as 300% while allowing change-overs to be made in seconds.
Meanwhile, Schunk’s new BSWS-MPG-plus standardised finger blanks feature an integrated quick-change jaw system that shortens the time for a jaw change in small-parts grippers, allowing jaw changes to be made in just 30sec.
The finger blanks with the integrated quick-change system are available in aluminium or steel.
