Machine table load and the associated mass moment of inertia can become a critical factor, particularly with high-speed processing and machining centres.
By using high-strength aluminium alloys, a reduction of more than 50% in weight can now be achieved, compared with basic elements in cast iron alloys or steel.
The high-strength aluminium alloy (AlCu4TiAg) used for our basic clamping elements (clamp-on pallets, brackets and cubes) is comparable with steel for yield strength (460 N/mm²) and tensile resistance (510 N/mm²), as well as giving outstanding protection against corrosion. In addition, our basic elements are hard anodized coated, achieving a surface hardness of 550HV.
All basic clamping elements in high-strength aluminium are available in practically all shapes and dimensions, as well as in our standard sizes.
Our clamping elements are available with all standard perforation patterns and may be customized to the client’s requirements.
