The Leader MultiChuck MMY concentric clamping system from Romheld Automation brings a host of advantages to the self-centring of components on vertical
and horizontal machining centres, milling machines and grinders – not least rapid clamping and short set-up times.
A simple top face operation enables more chucks – and therefore work pieces – to be ‘banked’ closely together. This is not the case with the traditional side face lock/unlock strategy.
These concentric clamping systems are available with two or three jaws and they combine fast initial jaw travel with controlled second-stage clamping. They feature a large jaw opening and high gripping force.
The chucks are suitable for external and internal clamping and they will satisfy both first and second operations in the same machining cycle. As such, they provide a continuous output of finished components for JIT supply.
