SMW Autoblok Introduces Electronic Part Positioning System

SMW Autoblok, a leader in the design and manufacture of rotational chucks, stationary workholding, tooling and engineered solutions for the machine tool industry, introduces the electronic ZeroAct E-motion automatic positioning system. The new system features Zero Point clamping used in a variety of machining applications, including milling, inspection, finishing, clean room operations and 3D printing.

ZeroAct E-motion features wireless connectivity and data transfer; it fully automates manufacturing processes using a 24 V power supply that operates with a built-in electro-motor. In addition, integrated electronic sensor technology provides contact-free part detection and safety for missing or misaligned parts.

With a low profile of 48 mm and extremely flat design, ZeroAct E-motion is said to be ideal for any Zero Point application, especially those where a large Z-axis travel of the spindle is critical for application success.

The modular ZeroAct E-motion system, with a compact size of 150 × 150 mm, reportedly provides a repeat accuracy of < 5 µm and holding force of 35, 50 or 75 kN depending on the thread of the clamping pin.

According to SMWQ Autoblok, the ZeroAct E-motion is part of a comprehensive lineup of plug-and-play, mechatronic workholding products, including chucks and stationary workholding for intelligent part holding.
