5-Axis Magnetic Chuck

SMW Autoblok Group offers the MillTec circular magnetic chuck for precision 5-axis machining.

Working on 5 axes allows the use of shorter tools to increase the feeds and the cutting speed. With a machine equipped with this technology, it is easier to carry out complex operations with 5-side access to the part, including complete profiling, the undercut working, the through holes and the creation of pockets.

"Best machine performance is achieved when all five faces of the workpiece are accessible, however, with traditional locking systems, the processing area is limited by the presence of the brackets, which often require multiple set-ups," said a company spokesperson. "With MillTec, the workpiece is clamped from the base, without any obstacle to the tool."

Additional features of the MillTec round include:

  • Increased productivity-Complete machining on five sides in one set-up without the limitation of brackets
  • Reduction of time and costs
  • Cost efficiency-Screws, brackets, consumables are not required
  • Clamp workpiece in seconds
  • High accuracy-The clamping is uniform on the entire contact surface resulting in the absence of distortions and deformations
  • No pre-machining of the workpiece.

The reduced thickness (MTG: 42 mm - MTB: 51 mm) and light weight facilitate the machine's performance, improving the useful range. MillTec presents a steel frame that can be machined to create references, holes or alignment keys.

SMW Autoblok's Mag Autoblok division includes a full line of permanent electromagnetic chucking systems for quick and flexible workholding on horizontal and vertical milling machines, vertical turning centers, FMS systems, grinding machines, EDMs, etc. A full line of magnetic lifters for loading and unloading workpieces is also offered.
