Smaller does not always equal better, but here it just might. Hainbuch has introduced one of the smallest systems for change-over currently on the market.

Hainbuch has introduced the Centrotex quick change-over interface. The system is now also available in a version for smaller spindles. Centrotex S is one of the smallest systems available on the market for setting up clamping devices. With its diameter of just 224 mm, it is well-suited as a quick change-over system for machines with a small work space.

With repeatability to ≤ 0.002 mm on the interface – without having to align – the latest version of the Centrotex quick change-over system can also meet rigorous requirements, according to the company. The machine adapter is mounted on the spindle, and the clamping device equipped with the adapter counterpart can be exchanged for another clamping device in less than a minute.

The smallest Centrotex version incorporates the technology of its big brother, however it is geared towards convenience. The Centrotex S is actuated via one radial locking screw and ergonomic operation has been improved, thanks to the fewer tightening turns required. In addition, the Monteq changing fixture offloads the machine operator and contributes to a fast clamping device set-up.

Key advantages:

  • Interface between machine and clamping device
  • Suitable for spindle nose KK5, KK6, AP140, and AP170
  • Repeatability to ≤ 0.002 mm on the interface – without having to align
  • Ergonomic handling
  • Resistant to contamination

Off to new horizons: Clamping devices reduce set-up times

14/09/2016 - Germany – When Germany-based KTR Group was looking to reduce set-up times in the manufacturing process, as well as improvements in handling chips and contamination, they talked to Hainbuch at the EMO exhibition in 2013. The result is a good partnership and optimised processes. read...
