A lot has happened since the development of the first gripper for a steep taper tool in 1980: Thousands of clamping systems delivered around the globe have made us a respected partner in the machine tool industry. Market and customer demands are constantly changing and our enthusiasm for thinking outside of the box and developing new ideas has been the engine of the steady re-development and further development of our products for tool clamping from the very start.
Therefore, we can offer a wide range of products, which continue to set standards for user friendliness, productivity and size and provide the best prerequisites for customised adaptation.
High component availability
Flexible product architecture
Short development times
Our range of grippers includes a wide range of adaptable clamping equipment for all commercially available interfaces. In addition, we have specialised in compact modular clamping systems for use in machining spindles. Testing and measuring units complete our range. Get to know our three product groups for tool clamping in more detail:
Creating optimum machining results with the right connection between
tool and machine
Clamping systems with a modular design principle: Modern manufacturing technology demands flexible clamping technology
Leave nothing to chance: Our tools
for ensuring consistent workpiece quality
Our gripper range convinces by its unique spectrum of available products. We design and produce grippers for all commercially available interfaces from steep taper and hollow taper shank to polygonal taper shank. All clamping equipment is designed to endure, completely maintenance-free and offers the greatest possible clamping force consistency.
In addition to the basic versions, a variety of options is also available, e. g.:
Various pull studs for our steep taper grippers complete the range.
Our tool clamping systems represent reliable performance, compact dimensions and a long service life. Using our tried-and-tested individual components guarantees the functionality and performance of the entire system.
Our scope of supply includes grippers, force-amplifying gear units, spring stacks and release cylinders as well as systems for medium transfer and position measurement. The result: (hydro)mechanical, hydraulic and electrical complete clamping units suitable for nearly every type of machining spindle.
The individual components are modified as required and adapted, for example, with regard to clamping force, installation space or speed range. This ensures that our customers get complete solutions tailor-made for their application.
As a clamping system manufacturer, we consider precise measurement of clamping forces essential. In accordance with our quality philosophy, all clamps are tested 100 %. For this purpose, we developed our own range of measuring systems, which permit quick and uncomplicated measurement of the clamping force and clamping shoulder incline (for our force-amplifying SK and PSC grippers).
Our clamping shoulder and clamping force measuring equipment is practice-approved, highly precise equipment for testing and ensuring the clamping forces in machining spindles.
A special advantage of our clamping force measuring devices is the universal use for different interfaces by simply exchanging the measuring adapter.
