A hydraulically-actuated, double-acting clamp with a long-travel, ideal for workholding in production systems having robotic or otherwise automated component load / unload, has been introduced by Roemheld. It will be shown for the first time on the German manufacturer's stand at AMB 2022
The new long-travel clamp Hilma.Ash from Roemheld has 80 mm of travel, so a single workholding arrangement can accommodate component families that would otherwise require investment in several different standard vices of more restricted travel. Therefore fewer conventional, workpiece-specific clamping devices are needed, saving expense. Set-up times are reduced and a further advantage is that spindle uptime is maximised on the machine tool.
The long travel offers sufficient flexibility for automated production of workpieces requiring more than one operation, while automated jaw change is possible using the same robot that loads and unloads the parts. It means that, without manual intervention, raw billets and semi-finished components can be held and machined alternately with different clamping forces.
