Magnetic Clamping Technique plays an ever increasing role in shipbuilding, the manufacture of press and wood processing machines, the machining of enormous, high- precision bearing rings for wind power plants, and in robot-supported handling of ferromagnetic work pieces or in the lifting of steel plates, pipes, cable drums or roller bearing rings. The technology leads the way in meeting the constantly growing requirements for precision on the one hand and undiminished cost pressure on the others.
The clamping and gripper technology specialist from Lauffen, tackled the issue of permanent magnetic clamping technology, which it has consistently continued to develop recently took a holding in S.P.D., The complete range of quadric pole, radial pole, parallel pole and lifting technology allows the clamping and gripping technology to develop the optimum solution for the respective task regardless of the system.
The Permanent magnetic clamping technology is considered to be a highly effective set-up time killer. It also ensures optimum machining as a result of the flat, deformation and vibration-free clamping. Without having to clamp the work piece a second or, indeed, a third time, this technology allows machining on five sides when milling and on three sides when turning. The service life of the tools is also considerably extended due to the significantly reduced vibrations. The large and small work pieces can be securely clamped in seconds on one and the same magnetic clamping plate. Because of the permanent technology, the magnets ensure a secure grip during machining without the need for electrical power. This also guarantees absolutely secure clamping even if there is a power failure. It's no surprise therefore that the magnetic specialists to see the delighted faces of users again and again when they are presented with the exceptional capability and the multitude of the yet undiscovered wide range of applications of magnetic clamping technology.
The magnetic lifting technology ranges from simple lifting magnets to high-performance lifting devices or traverses for cable drums, bearing rings, coils, metal plates or pipes with a lifting load of up to 20 tons. It can be used independent of a particular machine, requires little advance planning and no system technology or system integration.
