The company Heinrich Kipp Werk will be showcasing the Uni-Lock zero-point clamping and five-axis module systems. With highly efficient machine utilization and maximum precision, the flexible clamping systems are claimed to set new benchmarks in workpiece machining. The five-axis module system is ideally suited for the five-side machining of small- and medium-sized complex workpieces. The operator can use the two system sizes 80 and 50 mm on the zero-point clamping system or for the direct clamping of workpieces. Auxiliary processing times such as further set-ups or workpiece re-clamping are no longer necessary. As the exhibitors explain, the workpiece can be directly clamped using the five-axis module system or directly machined using the zero-point clamping system. The advantages of this compatibility lie in the fact that both systems can be combined as required. Also singled out are the set-up time optimization and the interlocking connections of the clamping pins in both systems.
Zero point to module system compatibility
With the flexible clamping systems from Kipp, the workpiece can be either directly clamped using the five-axis module system or directly machined using the zero-point clamping system.
