Schunk Intec Something old and something new to debut at the show
UK – Schunk’s stand at Mach will exhibit new products alongside established lines.
According to the company, its Tribos system, developed to improve surface finishes and tool service lives, has been designed to deliver a higher level of standardisation for precision tool holding. Some of the new micro-machining interfaces that will be on display are now available with the Tribos RM and Tribos Mini ranges. The Mini for high-speed micro applications can now be integrated with a high-speed HSK-E 20 spindle interface. The RM features an extended L1 dimension of 78 mm, for high-efficiency 5-axis machining. The mount can be combined with the standardised Tribos-SVL tool extension with adaptations for HSK-A 32, A 40, E 32 and E 40 interfaces. Many of the previous special solutions will now be included in the standard catalogue.
Schunk’s Tendo E Compact hydraulic expansion toolholder generates 2000 Nm of torque and is claimed to enable set-up times to be reduced by up to 60%. Also on show will be the SPM Plus 138 fixture membrane that is manufactured from aluminum. It provides the clamping of a multitude of geometries from all sides with a newly-developed pull-down effect that allows workpieces to be inserted within seconds and the complete circumference be clamped by locking the Vero-S module. The whole process is carried out within the elastic range of aluminum and thus allows thousand of times of repeated clamping.
