Automated workholding technology

Automation of zero-point workpiece clamping

vb DockLock SAFE 20 LA

Advantages:

  • Repeatability < 5 µm
  • Draw-in force: > 12,500 N
  • Holding power: > 40,000 N
  • Change cycles: > 2,000,000
  • Form fit clamping with collet for maximum draw-in forces
  • Low wear
  • Only 3 moving parts
  • With diagonal pull handling and push-up function

The LA and LAU series, with the advantages listed below, represent a breakthrough in the automation of zero-point workpiece clamping:

  • Blow-off of chips and coolant through the middle and via island nozzles
  • Total functional reliability due to pneumatic contact control and hydraulic piston position control
  • Hold-up effect of the collet, which is important in case of vertical configuration
  • Patented collet ensures a form fit and frictional connection and therefore maximum contact of the draw-in bolt
  • Pre-centering of clamping bolts facilitates automated loading
  • Maintenance friendly due to access from above

The AUTO SAFE series, with the advantages listed below, represent a breakthrough in the automation of zero-point workpiece clamping:

  • Automated closing of the clamping position ensures complete protection against contamination
  • Blow-off of chips and coolant through the middle and via island nozzles
  • Total functional reliability due to pneumatic contact control and hydraulic piston position control
  • Hold-up effect of the collet, which is important in case of vertical configuration
  • Patented collet ensures a form fit and frictional connection and therefore maximum contact of the draw-in bolt
  • Pre-centering of clamping bolts facilitates automated loading
  • Maintenance friendly due to access from above
  • Ventilation at top on cover
