M-TECHS SP50 and SP70

January 01,2011

Carr Lane Roemheld's M-TECHS SP50 and SP70 is a versatile clamping system for machining centers that offers clamping in just 1 to 2 seconds, and 5-Axis workpiece machining in a single clamping operation. Suitable for rapid positioning and securing of workpieces of varying sizes, the system offers long service life at a low investment cost. Electrically energized only during the magnetizing and demagnetizing phases, the electro-permanent magnetic clamping plates with square pole technology are designed for maximum retaining force and the highest flexibility. Multiple platens can be controlled with a single control unit, independent of the power supply.
