Panel Builder System Integrator

February 23, 2021

If you think that the innovation potential of stationary clamping system is already ex-hausted, you should have a look at SCHUNK: The specialist for gripping systems and clamping technology continues its success story with the 5-axis vise KONTEC KSX-C2 and provides new impulses for high-precision 6-sided machining. At first glance the upwardly tapered outside contour is striking. It improves accessibility with standard tools.

Moreover, the new generation scores on a closer inspection with numerous benefits: with its active jaw pull-down the KONTEC KSX-C2 achieves excellent results in terms of plane-parallelism and perpendicularity, and therefore creates ideal preconditions for challenging 6-sided machining. The vise is also setting benchmarks with its adjustable center, even when it comes to set-up times: due to a tool-free jaw quick-change system, reversible jaws for enlarging the clamping area as well as a unique basic jaw stroke of 130 mm which is second to none on the market, the vise can be quickly and precisely converted for a new range of parts. A broad range of quick-change jaws is available for this purpose. Moreover, the clamping range can be enlarged with a standardized piston rod extension.

Integrated elastomer damping

A torque wrench is used for continuously adjusting the clamping forces of the KONTEC KSX-C2, and a maximum of 40 kN at a torque of 120 Nm can be achieved. Therefore, this expert vise in 6-sided machining has a lot of power for safe holding – even in the case of minimum clamping surfaces. The forces for clamping sensitive parts can be finely adjust-ed. The long guiding system and the arrangement of the clamping mechanism ensure in each case a rigid, dimensionally stable set-up. The integrated elastomer damping ab-sorbs occurring oscillations during machining, resulting in excellent workpiece surface quality and tool service life. As both, drive and adjustment mechanism of the 5-axis vise are fully encapsulated, the vise is perfectly equipped against chips, dirt and coolant.

Comprehensive standard program

The SCHUNK KONTEC KSX-C2 is maintenance-free and is offered right from the beginning in four base body lengths (330 mm, 430 mm, 500 mm, 630 mm, 800 mm) and in two different heights (175 mm, 214 mm). It seamlessly fits into the modular system for high-efficient workpiece clamping from SCHUNK and can be quickly combined with the quick-change pallet system SCHUNK VERO-S or exchanged at a maximum repeat accuracy on the machine table. The necessary clamping pins can be directly integrated in the base body of the 5-axis vise without requiring adapter plates. As clamping is done by tension, no bending load occurs on the base body if a quick-change pallet system is used.
