Hainbuch Expanded range speed up clamping changeovers
Germany – Hainbuch says that recent additions to its Centrotex clamping system enable even faster changeovers.
The extensions mean that users of Centrotex, which is designed for clamping components of up to 300 mm, can choose and change over to the correct work-holding module within five minutes with an accuracy of below 0.008 mm. The system can be used on turning, measuring and grinding machines as well as on dividing heads. It also accepts collect chucks, mandrels, three-jaw chucks and fixtures. The clamping system is said to be rigid and robust and delivers shorter cycle set-up times, and improved repeat accuracy.
