Enemac Power clamping screws for easy handling of tools and workpieces
Enemac's power clamping screw, type ESS, with its innovative force-intensified system enables manual and easy handling of low-tightening torques with resulting high-clamping forces, the company says. Subject to the tightening torques, changing clamping forces can be achieved and the sturdy design allows for high reliability.
Looking like an over-dimensional set screw, the screw has a technical interior with a patented wedge mechanism. Its integrated force-intensified system provides relatively low torque that is induced by turning a hexagonal pin on the outside, which turns into an axial pass (up to max. 2,5 mm) with high-axial force.
The screws are operated with conventional spanner wrenches, which are adequate for high torques. For repeatable forces, torque wrenches are recommended. The external thread serves as a rough setting for the mating thread and it comes with a hexagonal bolt for easy handling.
High-clamping forces are necessary for tool clamping in presses and punches, clamping on machine tool tables, machinery manufacture and jig manufacturing.
Five sizes with clamping forces between 40 and 250 kN and male screws between M36 and TR100 by default are available.
