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.
To date, Roemheld offers the only magnetic clamping plates with a control system that meets the new EN 289 press standard for plastic and rubber machines that came into force in January 2014.
Roemheld has extended its rotor lock range to offer modular components that can operate in extreme conditions across all industries. Originally designed for use during the maintenance of on- and offshore wind power plants, the hydraulic and electro-mechanical components have since been used successfully in the medical and sheet metal forming industries and in applications including freeze-drying plants in the food industry and as door locks in amphibian vehicles.
Roemheld has launched an electronic pressure sensor that offers stationary and mobile measurement of rotating or hard-to-reach sections of hydraulic clamping fixtures. Said to be ideal for applications where wired connections are impractical or too expensive, the sensor uses radio transmission with a free-field range of up to 300m.
Roemheld has introduced rotor locks that are designed to deliver increased availability and simplified maintenance to wind power plants. A special coating prevents the locking bolt from rusting when not in use for a long period and non-contact position monitoring avoids mechanical wear and extends the life of the component.
Carbide inserts have recently been introduced for the Hilma MC 100 series vices and jaws from Roemheld, which enable end users to hold concentric components on just 3mm in a vice.
