A zero-point clamping system can complement a Hedelius machining centre. Numerous practical examples attest to its efficacy. Reducing non-productive time, setting up outside the machine, quickly pushing through an urgent order: these are challenges that arise in day-to-day production. This is where the zero-point clamping system comes into play: it provides the machine operator with a means to simplify the time-consuming processes of cleaning, measuring, aligning and clamping. The machine table is equipped with a standardised interface that pares the process of centring and aligning the apparatus back to a few seconds. This eliminates a significant source of errors.
All HEDELIUS machining centres can be equipped with GARANT ZeroClamp or SCHUNK zero-point clamping system in the factory. The clamping cylinders are fitted evenly into the fixed machine table, the integrated rotary table or the rotary/tilt table, so that travel is not restricted. The zero-point clamping system is impressive for its large holding load and repeat accuracy. Additional T-slots are also available for the use of conventional clamping devices.
