Making something good, even better – that is the maxim of Röhm engineers and technicians. So it is no wonder that the clamping technology specialists have set about combining the best properties of 3 and 2 jaw chucks thereby providing even more flexibility in machining.
Hence, the so-called 3/2 jaw chuck covers the greatest variety of customer requirements. Through the 3/2 principle, both round as well as square or rectangular workpieces can be clamped securely and machined.
Stephan Linder, Head of Design at the Dillingen location: “We have made two chucks into one, in a manner of speaking. And thanks to the key bar system that has proven itself over decades, high clamping forces and concentricity as well as reliable, permanent repeatability are now easily a given.”
In just a few seconds, the jaws can be turned quickly and easily, replaced or moved over the entire clamping range, thanks to the Röhm jaws quick change system.
The key bar system is convincing with its very high clamping forces and accuracy. This is possible thanks to large and straight surfaces transmitting the force from the key bar to the jaw teeth. The components are hardened, which ensures the highest accuracy even under extreme loads.
The 3/2 jaw chuck is being used successfully by leading medical systems companies, among others. Specifically, components for knee or hip joint implants are being machined, for example.
