    The F-Tool ZPS Duo-Compact with Power Flex centering is a precise and economical zero-point clamping system for manual or automatic use.

    Two Power Flex centering rings in the ZPS basic unit enable the centering. As the company explains the process, while clamping the pallets, the rings are compressed by the cone-ground clamping bolts and then form a force-locked connection. The established, high-precision spring steel centering is therefore used in a new form, according to the exhibitors. The independent clamping mechanism, in this case a centric installed MTS chuck, pulls the pallet onto the Z-support of the base unit with a remarkable 12,000 N of clamping power. As a world first, the ZPS tooling system is reportedly also available in combination with a magnet plate as clamping mechanism. Therefore, the magnet systems can also be loaded automatically in future.
