IMTS PAVILION: TOOLING AND WORKHOLDING


are available in four basic models that can be assembled into as many as 240 different configurations. More than 20 different available clamping methods and behind-the-spindle accesso- ries further extend the system’s adaptability. All pL Lehmann tables consume a minimum of space in the machine work envelope, facilitating optimal tool access to the workpiece. Despite their space-saving dimensions, the tables and spindles offer strong resistance to pull-out torque and axial force while providing high levels of clamping torque. Both single-spindle and multispindle pL Lehmann tables are available in 4th

ates in simultaneous machining or 3+2 positioning modes. Working in tandem with pL Lehmann rotary tables, the new swissClamp system allows operators to mount mul- tiple workpieces on machine tool tables for uninterrupted production and untended operations. For use with rotary and standard tables on vertical or horizontal milling machines, the Swiss-manufactured swissClamp modules mount on faceplates or directly on worktables and extend a shop’s potential part-clamping range from 90 to 200 mm—a 40% increase in workpiece capacity within the same clamping length. swissClamp enables both mono clamping, requiring only one basic body, and duo clamping, where two mono clamps are mounted opposite one another. Configuration options include creating a clamping tower/tombstone on a fourth axis, a horizontal clamping cone that is overhung or with counter bearing, or a clamping bridge on a trunnion table setup where both sides require a different design with mono and duo systems. Operators can also create clamping modules on the fourth or fifth axis.

Hainbuch Demonstrates Workholding Smarter Theme Hainbuch America Corp. (Germantown, WI) will empha-


size Workholding Smarter solutions for new and existing ma- chines under its TTTP—today, tonight, tomorrow—philoso- phy of helping its customers conserve capital. “In our booth, we’ll have Interactive carts that demonstrate our modular quick-change chucks,” said Michael Larson, marketing direc- tor. “The mobile interactive carts have become very popular with our dealers and distributors and their customers around the country. The carts show just how quickly you can switch from one modular adaptation to another, and our customers will be able to have hands-on experience with our Workhold- ing Smarter techniques,” said Larson. Hainbuch will exhibit its Spanntop high-precision work- holding system and its centroteX quick-change chuck system. “The Hainbuch Spanntop high-precision workhold- ing system offers users the option of converting the basic chuck for OD, ID, and three-jaw clamping operations with a changeover time of two minutes or less. In each mode, the chuck delivers proven performance and high repeatability,” said Larson. “The jaw module can be used for both conven- tional and larger size parts, and accuracy is ensured through engagement of 80% of the part diameter.” “Hainbuch’s reputation for precision workholding is built


around versatile high-precision chucks designed for the fast change of collets, bushings, jaws, and other clamping devices,” said Larson. “The centroteX System takes this even further by facilitating the fast and easy changeover of the entire chuck. This not only increases the range of part diam- eters that can be machined, but extends the capability of the machine tool in terms of process variability. Further, it allows for workholding devices to be quickly and accurately mounted on multiple milling and turning machines within a manufactur- ing plant. Changeover time of the centroteX system is typically
