VERO-S NSL Clamping System

June 01,2015

According to Schunk, set up changes are reduced by 90 percent with this fast, accurate quick-change, workholding and positioning system. Infinite combinations are possible as any workholding can be mounted on top, from a standard vise to a custom fixture, for a reliable and consistent changeover.

For aµm-precise connection between machine table and workpiece, the VERO-S clamping system makes optimal use of even the smallest machine table. Combine with the comprehensive Schunk stationary workholding range or an existing workholding to find the solution to your clamping needs. VERO-S quick-change pallet system delivers fast and precise resetting of workpieces, clamping devices and other equipment on 3-, 4- or 5-axis machining centers.

Workpieces can be directly clamped, and machined from five sides without restricting accessibility. This is done by screwing the clamping pins of the quick-change pallet system directly into the workpiece. The components are then quickly exchanged in the machine, positioned, fixed, and clamped all in one step with a repeat accuracy of less than 0.005mm. The clamping height of the workpieces can be adjusted with module height extensions, so the machine spindle can reach all five sides of the workpiece without any special tools.
