The Centrotex quick change-over interface from Hainbuch
has set new standards since its introduction and now, the system is available in a new version for smaller machine spindles with its diameter of just 224mm.
The new Centrotex S is an ideal solution for eliminating non-productive downtime, set-up time and job changeover times that are often increased when access to a compact work envelope is restricted. With repeatability better than ≤0.002mm on the interface without having to re-align, the latest addition to the Centrotex family of ‘quick change’ systems can meet the most rigorous of industry requirements.
The machine adaptor is mounted on the spindle and the clamping device is equipped with a counterpart adaptor that can be exchanged for another clamping device in less than 1min making long set-up times a thing of the past.
The smallest Centrotex S incorporates the proven technology of the established Centrotex platform while demonstrating superior levels of convenience. The Centrotex S is actuated via just one radial locking screw and ergonomic operation has been significantly improved, thanks to the fewer rotations required to tighten and clamp the system.
In addition, the Monteq changing fixture contributes to a faster clamping device set-up. The new Centrotex S is perfect for clamping parts typically up to 52mm diameter and is suitable for A2-5, A2-6, AP140 and AP170 spindle nose systems.
The compact design makes the new Centrotex S the ideal solution for small turning centres and machining centres where operator access can be a considerable challenge in a compact work area as well as for fixed position clamping set ups on the bed of machine tools that are machining small parts up to 52mm diameter.
The precision, rigidity and clamping forces can significantly improve machining performance, surface finishes and tool life while the ‘quick-change’ capabilities lead the industry. This combination guarantees an extremely short return on investment by providing much higher machine availability and production throughput.
