Stationary Workpiece Clamping

The SCHUNK TANDEM PGS3-LH 100 vise is available as a starter kit, which includes console plate for direct mounting onto machine tables, dividing heads or SCHUNK VERO-S NSL3 150 clamping stations.

"Whether you are new to automation or a seasoned pro, there are many factors that you are likely to consider when choosing a new product for automating your processes," said a SCHUNK spokesperson.

The spokesperson continued, "With its lean automation program and the plug & work portfolio for cobots, SCHUNK already offers cost effective solutions for component handling. Now the provider of gripping systems and clamping technology expands its offering for stationary workpiece clamping by launching a low maintenance vise that makes it easy to transition into the world of automation."

The pneumatically actuated clamping force block SCHUNK TANDEM PGS3-LH 100 can be directly mounted via the integrated flange on the machine tables, dividing heads or SCHUNK VERO-S NSL3 150 clamping stations of machining centers. Its compact and square design offers optimum accessibility and enables a considerable stroke of 6 mm per jaw.

With a clamping force of 4,500 N and a repeat accuracy of 0.02 mm, the low-maintenance SCHUNK TANDEM PGS3 is suitable for basic applications in aluminum and plastics machining. Special features include a chip-repelling design, surface-treated components in the power flux and long base jaw guidance to avoid lifting up of the chuck jaws.

The vise can be equipped with all standard top jaws with tongue and groove (KTR, KTR-H) from SCHUNK's extensive chuck jaw program. The vise has lateral air connections and built-in keyways and can be immediately incorporated into any machine tool.
