As the exhibitors from Röhm explain, segmented collet chucks from the HSK (hollow taper shank) clamping sets used to be mounted in the spindle by hand. This was difficult to handle and time-consuming, above all for spindles that were difficult to access. For that reason, the company has designed and developed a simple but clever assembly tool for mounting such clamping sets. As a result, segmented collet chucks can reportedly be installed in the spindle with very little effort and very quickly. An additional benefit provided by the assembly tool is seen in the prevention of damage during mounting. Scratches on the clamping set and spindle are ruled out, the German manufacturers point out. Moreover, the mounting tool is said to pay for itself quickly as a result of the time saved during mounting and the low purchase price.
HSK clamping sets quickly changed
The clamping and gripping technology specialist Röhm has developed a tool for the assembly of HSK clamping sets that enables segment clamping collets to be mounted in seconds with just a few hand movements.
