Roemheld set to launch workholding and assembly products at Mach 2012
Workholding and assembly products, E-Tec products
Roemheld is set to launch two new ranges of products at Mach 2012: a series of workholding and assembly products — such as clamps, vices and jaws — and its ’E-Tec’ range of devices, which includes electric wedge clamps, swing clamps, zero point mounting systems, machine vices, block cylinders and work supports.
The latest workholding and assembly products will include core workholding clamps and vices, as well as a range of Hilma five-axis vices and jaws.
These include the KC100 five-axis vice, which allows concentric components to be gripped in the same vice, enabling the machining of machined and un-machined parts.
Both this range and the E-Tec series will be launched at Mach 2012, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham on 16–20 April 2012.
Roemheld will be located on Stand 5240 in Hall 5.
- Roemheld will also be displaying developments in its flexible fixturing system (Pogo stick), Bock vice range and Modulog assembly and mounting products.
- Additionally, it will be showing zero-point mounting systems such as the Stark Easy Click — a fast-closing system that clicks into place and holds immediately.
At Mach 2014, Roemheld will launch its Speedy Etec range of all-electric zero point mounting systems for machines and machining centres without hydraulics and other applications.
M-Tecs magnetic clamping plates from Roemheld are suitable for applications where frequent die changes are required, downtimes need to be reduced or where it would be impossible or too expensive to standardise clamping edge heights and die sizes. The technology is also suitable for large die sizes and heavy weights, which require significant levels of power and time to be clamped; for example, on large presses and punches in sheet metal forming.
Roemheld will be showcasing its new products, applications and workholding systems — many of which will be seen in the UK for the first time — at stand 5250 at the Mach exhibition, held at the NEC in Birmingham on 7–11 April 2014.
Roemheld has introduced the hydro-mechanical clamping nut to its quick die range. Designed for clamping and locking dies on press beds and rams, the tool clamping element delivers a high clamping force in a limited space and is suitable for use whenever clamping up to 150kN is required without the use of hydraulics.
Roemheld launched a new generation of magnetic rapid clamping systems at K2013. The new systems are designed to maximise productivity levels and increase throughput in plastics and rubber processing operations.
