The german company DESAGA GmbH is located in Wiesloch. As part of the SARSTEDT Group, DESAGA GmbH is active in the medical industry, more specifically in laboratory automation.
In 2020, the customer purchased a new 5-axis machine, type Spinner U630, in order to be able to process the components and workpieces more efficiently and economically. Mainly workpieces made of aluminium and plastic are machined with a batch size of 1 to 200 pieces. The customer uses the pneumatic zero-point clamping system VERO-S from Schunk on the machine table.
Mr Kirchner, who is responsible for production, was looking for a mechanical clamping vice with very good accessibility so that the company could carry out complete 5-axis machining with the shortest possible tools.
Our sales representative, Mr. Klaus Thut and Mr. Joachim Schönenberger (SCHUNK GmbH & Co. KG), visited the company DESAGA GmbH. Due to the many years of sales experience and the large clamping assortment, a clamping solution could be presented which can be optimally used for the customer's tasks.
The choice was made in favour of our power-strong 5-axis clamping vice, the grepos-5X-C 330, because of its simple and proven handling (clamping force continuously adjustable 5-40kN / 160° quick clamping) as well as the mobile fixed jaw, which can also be moved to the centre.
Grepos-5X-C in use due to its symmetrical accessibility and high clamping force an optimal and safe 5-sided machining is possible.
Feedback DESAGA GmbH, Mr Kirchner:
"The clamping vice from GRESSEL has a very good accessibility and is very easy to operate due to its 160° quick clamping. Another plus point is that the mobile fixed jaw can be moved and thus machining in the centre is possible."
