            • MAGNET Clamping technique

            • For the milling of medium and large work pieces, the square pole-magnet technology has proven worldwide as one of the best clamping techniques. Extremely short set-up times as well as a vibration- and interference-free clamping are only some reasons for its use in the fine mechanics area to the ship building industry.

              System-Features

              • Vibration-free working and clamping of work pieces
              • Fast and secure clamping of uneven parts
              • Equal clamping force over the entire surface, without warping the work piece
              • Five-side machining without crash risk
              • Full use of the machine travel ways
              • Minimal set-up times
              • Fast and accurate plane-parallel milling 
              • Clamping of uneven welding constructions in no time
              • Fast assembly of individual, magnetic clamping chucks
              • Equal retention force in all directions due to square pole technique
                • MAGNET Clamping technique function

                • The advanced QX technology comes up with many intelligent improvements, both mechanically and magnetically. Due to the use of connected block-pole-fields in the monolithic frame construction of the magnet clamping plate, the stiffness has been significantly increased compared to the old single-pole-technology - even with its small construction height. Also the epoxy-resin-interfaces have been reduced and the magnetic retention forces as well as the air gap behavior have been improved with the revolutionary block-field-technology. The threads in the soft magnet poles are provided with wear-resistant tool steel inserts.

                  The QX magnet clamping technology is available for plates in different heights and for clamping blocks. Two different pole sizes can be selected. Depending on the expected work piece geometry two pole sizes, 50 x 50mm or 70 x 70mm, can be chosen.

                  Poles with the size of 50 x 50mm generate a magnetic field which enters 12mm into the work piece. That makes them a perfect choice for thinner and smaller work pieces. Another advantage is that especially smaller work pieces occupy more pole transitions which ensures a more evenly clamping process. Compared to the 70 x 70mm pole, a poorer air gap behavior and a higher set-up effort (more pole extensions) must be mentioned as a disadvantage. The nominal retention force is super strong with 160N/cm2 = 4 kN per pole.

                  Pole with the size of 70 x 70mm generate a magnetic field which enters 18mm into the work piece. That makes them a perfect choice for larger work pieces. The excellent air gap behavior allows to clamp also uneven work pieces safely. On the 70 poles, pole extensions with a higher hub (height adjustment) can be used. The nominal retention force is super strong with 160N/cm2 = 7.8 kN per pole.
                • MAGNET Clamping plates

                • Structure

                • MAGNET Clamping plates ST control units

                • ST Control units are produced at latest state-of-the-art. They are all short-circuit-proofed and equipped with a power management to control the complete magnetization. Optionally single plates or whole tables can be switched. The integration into the machine control center is easily possible. The item ST 211 Grind is equipped with an 8-stage-retention force regulation as well as with a special demagnetize cycle for the operation of grinding plates.

                  The mentioned shortcuts for the control units in the tables below help to find the right control unit for each magnet clamping plate. These shortcuts are also listed at the magnet clamping plate sites.

                  All magnet clamping plate control units have the following technical data:
                  • Output voltage Impulse
                  • Housing IP 44 / protection class 1
                  • 100% ED, 0-40°C
                  • Release contact for machine security
                • MAGNET Pole extensions

                • Structure

                  Magnet pole extensions are generally divided into fixed and mobile pole extensions. Fixed and mobile pole extensions on square-pole clamping systems allow the clamping of wavy and warped metal parts. They adapt to the workpiece and keep it safe. The individual points of contact between magnetic chuck and workpiece can be defined individually. Single points of contact between the magnet clamping plate and the work piece can be defined individually. As a result the drilling and machining of inner edges is possible on magnetically clamped work pieces. Additional pole extensions can be mounted quickly or interfering ones removed. Like that each work piece has its individual fixture in no time.

                  For fa 5-side machining the work piece can be set free with the help of pole extensions. Complex structures for hard to clamp work pieces can be added into the magnetic active surface with pole plates. They protect the magnet clamping plate from wear and damage.

                  Pole extensions are made out of high-quality steel and have best magnet fluency characteristics. They are technically perfect and long-lasting.

                      • UNILOCK Automation clamping chucks

                      • Structure

                        Our UNILOCK Automation clamping chuck range is decided into Clamping chucks using UNILOCK Clamping knobs (UNILOCK Standard principle) and Clamping chucks using UNILOCK Clamping rings (UNILOCK Automation principle). Chucks after the UNILOCK standard principle have been developed as Automation beginner solutions because the costs are lower by using UNILOCK Clamping knobs then by using UNILOCK Clamping rings. Every Automation clamping chuck has been developed for a specific application area, depending on transport pallet sizes and pallet weights.
                        UNILOCK Automation chuck according to the UNILOCK Standard principle

                        This UNILOCK Automation clamping chuck has been developed for automatization with robots or pallet-change-systems. It has an integrated emulsion drain as well as a smaller ring support with sealed air. Open-control is navigated over a micro valve. For a low-wear job, the combination with UNILOCK Clamping knob (Centering collar length 10mm) and UNILOCK Support ring 70*5mm (hardened) is recommended.

                        UNILOCK Automation chuck according to the UNILOCK Automation principle

                        UNILOCK Automation clamping chucks using UNILOCK Clamping rings were developed for automatic pallet change of pallets with various sizes. Depending on sizes and clamping force of the individual Automation chucks, pallets of 500*500mm to 2500*2500mm can be machined. The biggest and strongest UNILOCK Automation chuck can handle weights up to 5 tons.

                      • UNILOCK Automation clamping units are made out of steel and can be assembled on any autonomous clamping location. With a powerful clamping location, they are suitable for immediate use. These UNILOCK Automation clamping units have four clamping wedges as well as four hardened and grinded centering units included. The media performance for a clamping device operation is provided.

                        As a counterpart to UNILOCK Automation clamping units we also offer clamping pallets for every clamping unit. In most cases we are manufacturing clamping pallets after customers requirements.
                      • UNILOCK Automation clamping rings / centering devices

                      • These centering elements guarantee a high-precision pallet positioning for single and multiple chuck applications. Single UNILOCK Automation chucks are oriented and supported with external centering devices. The big advantage here is in the planar cone contact with integrated blow-off-functions at both, the chuck and the external orientation and support devices.

                        Every UNILOCK Automation clamping chuck has its own Clamping rings.
                        There use and handling is for all versions the same.
                      • UNILOCK robot- / pallet interfaces

                      • Two different Interface systems have been developed for pallet-changing with the help of robots. Robot interface 105-65-RK3 as sleeve adaptor and robot interface RK5 as Clamping knob adaptor. Both UNILOCK Robot interfaces can be adapted to the most common robot interfaces. RK3 is using a one-bolt system and can be used for pallets with a weight to mac. 500kg. RK5 is developed specially for heavy-lift components and is designed with a strong two-bolt system.

                        Every UNILOCK Robot interface has its own pallet interface. In most cases applications are very specific that we develop pallet interfaces after customers requirements.
                    • Mineralcast technique

                    • Since 2008 we have our own mineral casting factory which makes it possible to optimize our clamping and measuring products in-house. UNILOCK Clamping pallets and UNILOCK Clamping towers can be manufactured lighter with the use of ROC mineral cast to not affect modern machine centers in their operation speed. The excellent damping characteristics of the ROC mineral cast guarantee best production results.

                      For our TOOLSET Measuring system for example, we produce the specially designed base and measuring towers in a high-precision process. Our mold construction team also creates custom designs for ROC mineral cast products which we offer to produce on loan base.
                        • ROC technology

                        • The technology for mounting and clamping devices

                          Mineral cast is a two-part-system, consisting of mineral particles and an epoxy casting resin as binding material. The main materials in the finished mineral cast are minerals with about 90 weight-percent. The epoxy casting resin consists of liquid resin and curing agent.

                          Mineral cast will be molded, by using a cold-cast-procedure at room temperature, into precise negative forms. The minerals will be a combination of different mineral sizes and the liquids, which will be intensively mixed together under a special procedure. After that, the mixture will be cast into the forms under vibration and a homogeneous structure is created. The hardening afterwards is an exothermic process and takes about 12 hours. The cast can then be put out of the forms and the forms can be prepared for the next process. A relevant advantage of this procedure is that the results are accurate to shape and measure. That’s why machine elements like thread inserts, plates, guidances and tubes for example can be placed exactly into the cast and don’t have to be reworked or finished after the shaping. Another advantage especially for the application and clamping device production are the good vibration damping the low weight (Tightness 2.3 kg/dm3) of the material and the various design
                          possibilities.

                          Subsuming can be noted that the mineral cast is having lots of advantages for the end customer like efficient use on machine centers (speed, tool wear, finish quality), short procurement time and interesting procurement prices. The specific material properties require an adjusted engineering according to each application. They enable flexible solutions, however, particularly in the fixture construction and therefore contribute to the economical use of the procedure.

                        • ROC history

                        • Historical development of mineral casting in the machining industry

                          The search for alternatives to metallic raw materials - in machine tool building especially - started during the Second World War already. The main focus was on improved vibration dampening and good material availability. At that time, first tests on concrete beds for turning machines were made in Germany, which were not very successful in the beginning.

                          Only around 1960 were machine tool beds manufactured industrially from hydraulic concrete. However, this concrete had two crucial disadvantages: a very low tensile strength and its problematic performance towards liquids. Later on, mechanical parts were produced from polymer concrete, which was already well known in the building industry. After some years searching for an adequate binder, the epoxy-based mineral cast established itself. The deficiencies of the hydraulic concrete could be avoided, but the production was still challenging and expensive.

                          In the late 70ies, companies of the grinding machine sector started producing grinding machine beds from mineral cast. Also smaller companies of other fields started using mineral cast, so that the use of the material became popular in the 80ies in the machine tool building. In the 90ies, the material was so well-developed, that different manufactures in Switzerland, Germany and the United States used it to produce measuring systems, woodworking machines and devices.

                          Today, mineral cast technology is considered to be tried and tested as well as an economical alternative to metallic material for serial production of machines and tools. Design guidelines as well as material data are established.
