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.
