The company SWG Metallverarbeitung und Montagetechnik GmbH manufactures workpieces in different sizes on a horizontal machining center type SW-BA 322 Twin Spindle. The requirement for the clamping device was to be able to set the desired clamping range as quickly and easily as possible and without major conversion.
This tensioner is characterized by the large clamping range, which can be additionally preset mechanically, and is very insensitive to dirt due to the encapsulated spindle. Further, the single clamp has a compact design and high accuracy.
Based on the advice of Marco Sauer, SCHUNK GmbH & Co. KG and Klaus Thut, GRESSEL AG, the company decided on the solinos 100 hydraulic single clamp when selecting the clamping device. The clamping force of the solinos single clamping vise is 0-40 kN and the maximum clamping range is 243 mm.
