Hainbuch Expands the Modular System

Hainbuch Expands the Modular System

Added to MTDCNC by HAINBUCH UK Ltd on 12 June 2016

To increase productivity, Hainbuch has recognised and conceptually moved its strategy away from 'individual' clamping devices. This philosophy has enabled the clamping device manufacturer to opt for a user-friendly modular set-up system that enables fast and accurate change-overs in minimal time and at minimal expense.

With the modular system, the basic clamping device remains mounted on the machine and simultaneously serves as an interface for other clamping devices. Whether for I.D. or O.D. clamping, saw cuts or bar work, the pull-back effect of the mounted add-on clamping elements enables solid clamping with optimum characteristics, such as high rigidity, vibration reduction, and maximum metal removal rates.

Clamping in all variants - when turning and milling

The innovation is not just the individual clamping devices, but rather the modular principle. This delivers application diversity that drastically minimises set-up times and decreases production downtimes. The jaw module came to reality to make this modular system usable for smaller quantities and material dimensions up to a diameter of 200mm. Together with the Toplus or a Spanntop chuck, the modular system become a clamping solution for all situations. 

Mandrels and clamping heads can also be used in the basic unit. The new jaw module completes the circle and leads in a new clamping dimension that opens up even more possibilities for users. With less weight and a smaller interference contour, Hainbuch is offering the perfect 3 in 1 combination of I.D. clamping, O.D. clamping and jaw clamping.

With the new member of the family, the face driver adaption this is no longer a problem. This clever innovation can machine a workpiece over its entire length and re-clamping is no longer necessary. Firstly, this increases concentric precision, secondly, the formal and position tolerances 'stabilise', and thirdly, the face driver adaption is also assembled in no time at all. The carbide pins dig into the end face of the shaft and transmit the torque. The advantages are very clear, high accuracy due to machining in one clamping set-up. Simply insert it in the clamping device and tighten the three screws. The Centrex interface ensures the perfect concentricity. The second practical clamping innovation that Hainbuch has recently added to the product range is the Morse taper adaption [MK4]. 

It fortunately accommodates tools, centers and face drivers perfectly together with the Hainbuch clamping devices. Just three screws separate this inner connection. As soon as these three screws are tightened, customers have optimal concentricity qualities thanks to the Centrex interface
