Magnetic Chucks accelerate your projects during machining ferromagnetic materials. Magnetic chucks are modern devices used to replace vises, mechanical clamps and fixtures.
Through electromagnetic, electro-permanent and permanent magnetic chucks for clamping and unclamping of the machined components improve efficiency, allows the workpiece to be accessible from 5 sides, and the chucks never damage the products.
Utilizing magnetic chucks for workholding has long become a popular option in manufacturing facilities. The goal is simply holding the blank, casting, or forging to be machined with enough grip power to allow milling, turning, drilling, or grinding. Traditionally, workpieces for machining were held in place using vises or fixtures. Today, magnetic chucks have been accepted as a workholding solution in surface grinding applications, they are now finding acceptance in general machine shops. Magnetic chucks help to reduce setup, increase access to the many sides of a workpiece, and simplify the workholding process.
An essential advantage of magnetic chucks for workholding is continuous clamping. Not similar to mechanical clamps and vises, it has no variations on how tightly the workpiece is held. Full support of the workpiece is another essential advantage. For example, if toe clamps are utilized on the outer surfaces of a workpiece, its center is a challenge. These unsupported areas can chatter resulting in increased cycle time.
Workholding chucks hold the whole workpiece. This complete support reduces chatter and accelerates the process. The clampless feature allows your equipments to cut without interference.
Setup and tear down are very important to a machine shop’s bottom line. Magnetic chucks installed on machine tables enable workpieces to be attached to the machine without bolts. This leads to increased throughput, and reduced costs.
