At IMTS 2018, set for September 10-15, Röhm Products of America will present a wide range of workholding solutions that lead to higher levels of efficiency in turning, milling, grinding, and drilling applications as well as enable lights-out manufacturing. The workholding specialist will also demonstrate how the company is a single source supplier for chucks, centers, face drivers, rotating workholding, fixtures, palletizing, and robot gripping solutions.
A must-see for visitors to booth #432528 will be a powered external clamping chuck for gear surface face grinding. The KZF-S collet chuck is especially well suited for clamping gears/workpieces that have an external plane or gear teeth geometries accessible from the outside. Additionally, the chuck allows face and ID diameters to be turned or ground concentric to outer gear pitch diameters.
Röhm will also showcase its EASYLOCK clamping system, a zero-point palletization solution that reduces setup times by up to 90 percent. With a standardized interface and level of precision and repeat accuracy of less than 0.005 mm, EASYLOCK can be outfitted with a large range of Röhm’s collet chucks, lathe chucks, and vises for full flexibility via its modular design. The clamping system is equally well suited for vertical, horizontal, or multi-axis machining.
