The new innovative electro-permanent magnetic chuck from Braillon Magnetic is claimed to solve milling work-holding needs on a lasting basis. According to the company, the new systems are manufactured with stainless-steel air gaps that protect the magnet against the most severe workloads. The high-quality manufacturing of the magnetic chuck ensures that the magnetic coils are protected and waterproof. As is explained, other magnets using resin have a limited lifetime because of the chipping and wear of the resin. The magnetic chucks on exhibition reportedly use the square pole system to generate maximum pull and are only 43 mm thick. However, the thin profile and low weight is said not be a limiting factor in the milling machine processes. A quick-change pallet option is offered for zero-point systems such as Erowa, 3R, Hirschmann, or Vischer & Boli.
