Mechanical zero point clamping system GRESSEL gredoc

13 / 12 / 2021

If the clamping vice is changed on a milling machine, the new clamping vice must be positioned (aligned). This requires experience and time. With zero point clamping systems, this process is simplified and a lot of time can be saved. Errors are avoided and the spindle running time is increased.

For automation, e.g. for pallet change, pneumatically, hydraulically or electrically operated zero point clamping systems are required.

For the set-up process, mechanical zero point clamping systems such as gredoc are increasingly used. These are operated with hand tools and torque spanners and have many advantages:

  • Secure fastening of the clamping vice due to self-locking (similar to screw connection).
  • No media supply necessary (no rotary union or hose connection)
  • Low overall height of 30 mm for the gredoc, thus the travel of the machine remains large
  • Low platens with zero point clamping systems are lighter, leaving more "payload" for clamping equipment and workpieces on the machine
