Several features of the new Tandem KSP plus clamping force blocks from Schunk Inc. (www.schunk.com) are engineered to provide repeat accuracy of 0.01 mm.
The design features include multi-tooth guidance for the base jaws, long jaw guidance, and exact centering via the clamping sleeves to help reduce jaw lifting.
The compact clamping force block with its rigid one-piece base body achieves gripping forces of up to 60 kN (13,489 lbf).
The units, with an integrated piston lubrication system, have a compact chip-deflecting shape and wear-resistant parts making them almost maintenance free. The clamping force blocks are available in sizes 100 mm, 160 mm and 250 mm.
