Partners complete a comprehensive presence from Gewefa at MACH 2020
Toolholding specialist Gewefa UK has revealed details of many of the products being featured by its UK partners at the forthcoming MACH 2020 exhibition.
In the UK Gewefa represents EWS, OTT-Jakob, Pibomulti, Nann, Rineck and Fahrion, all of whom will be featured on the stand alongside its own extensive toolholding capability.
Driven tool specialist EWS will be majoring on the Varia quick change toolholding system. With Varia, spindle tooling can be achieved in as little as 20 seconds and the ability to pre-set sister tooling off the machine further enhances productivity. With the single clamping point the securing of tools is achieved without any radial force.
German spindle specialist OTT-Jakob will be featuring its highly acclaimed PowerCheck spindle monitoring system alongside a range of its recently introduced rotary unions.
PowerCheck is a highly adaptable component that can be used as a portable service tool or, in larger machine shops, can be permanently located (exactly as a toolholder) in the carousel to supply on-going data on spindle condition.
The connection to the hand held data collector is wireless so an operator can monitor information collected at the machine from up to eight different machine locations. Over 8,000 readings can be stored on the handset with these easily downloaded to a USB for transfer to a lap top or network computer system.
Swiss speeder and angle head specialist Pibomulti has a further addition to its Rainbow range of angle heads. The latest head is able to clamp up to a Ø12mm tool shank via a Gewefa hydraulic clamping system which also eliminates the use of reduction sockets.
Also featured is a fully mechanical 360° orientation head which is particularly suited for use in a Makino Mag1 tool changer due to its compact size. Able to index at any orientation, the air input is through the centre of the input shaft (to actuate the 360° pneumatic system).
The newest addition to Gewefa’s partner portfolio is Fahrion with Gewefa exclusively representing products from the Fahrion Precision Centro P Premium range of collet chucks.
Gewefa is supporting three products from Premium programme – Ultra Power Chucks, Dynamic Performance Chucks and Mini Precision Chucks.
The Ultra Power Chucks (UPC) are designed to optimise material removal rates on high-performance machines with high rigidity and drive power.
The Dynamic Performance Chucks (DPC) are designed for machines with less stability and drive power, but usually with higher spindle and axis speed. DPC is ideal for trimming, finishing and roughing with all processing tasks able to be performed using the same chuck.
Finally, the Mini Precision Chucks (MPC) are designed for use with high speed spindles or for operating in tight spaces.
There will also be two new developments from collet specialist Nann.
Its new MSK manually operated collet chucks are universal and can be used for both external and internal clamping while the latest spindle unit range are for use with draw-back collets, dead length collets and expanding collets.
Completing the picture from Gewefa, specialist toolholding and heat shrink clamping expert Rineck will be featuring a range of its Capto toolholders and threaded adaptors.
Experts will be on hand to discuss all of these products and more, ensuring a visit gives a most comprehensive overview of toolholding in all its forms and variations.
