K 2019 / Roemheld Rivi Precise clamping without deformation
At the K 2019 trade fair, Roemheld Rivi will not only stress its prominence in the plastics sector but also in the rubber industry with magnetic clamping devices.
The company is the only magnetic die clamping company to have the technology to operate in the latter sector due to the ability of its M-TECS series plates to withstand temperatures up to 240°C.
Dies and moulds made from ferromagnetic materials can be clamped and subsequently released over their full surface area and high plate stiffness resists bending. The systems work without electrical power and require only a short current pulse lasting a few seconds to activate and deactivate the magnets.
Permanent magnets generate a field that penetrates a few millimetres into the tool and hold even heavy mould halves weighing several tons in the correct position, bringing them together with absolute parallelity. Even moulds with complex geometries can be precisely clamped without deformation. Uniform distribution of the clamping force ensures low die wear, according to the company.
To be announced also at K 2019 is the formation of a new network comprising 15 service locations throughout Europe and one each in the USA, China and Japan. Trained Roemheld Rivi engineers will provide enhanced support for customers in their native languages and each centre will have access to replacement parts to speed service and support.
Roemheld Rivi can be found in Hall 11, Booth C68 at K 2019.
