Designed specifically for precision turning and grinding operations, SAV North America has introduced a line of magnetic chucks that improve holding ability for highly accurate cutting. SAV explains that its radial pole high power electro-permanent magnetic chucks hold parts securely while allowing full access in a single set-up, so labor costs decline and finished-product throughput increases.
SAV designs and manufactures workholding solutions that incorporate mechanical, magnetic and hydraulic components. The new Radial Pole chucks are built from standard designs to users’ specific turning applications and machine model, regardless of size.
Radial Pole high power electro-permanent magnetic chucks are engineered with a heavy-duty holding force of 245 pounds per square inch. Unlike competitive models, the high strength and surface area of SAV’s magnetic chucks allow for hard turning without sacrificing speed and feed capabilities of machine tools. Part size is not restricted, and those with limited surface areas that can be held securely to reduce the possibility of work slippage, inferior cuts and wasted materials.
The solid body construction of these magnetic chucks allows for superior balance and stability of the work piece allowing for flexible mounting options. Top tooling elevates the work piece to be turned or cut making access easy and changeovers quick and efficient. Its separate top plate is fully sealed to prevent any short circuiting due to coolant leakage from machines during the cutting process ensuring a consistent and strong magnetic hold. Custom Mechatronic part centering options for operator error-free placement of work pieces are available.
Using advanced electro-permanent magnet technology, SAV’s Radial Pole high power magnetic chucks have greater clamping force than other magnets. Special design features allow for secure holding of parts until a programmable release cycle is activated fully demagnetizing the chuck and releasing work pieces quickly and cleanly. These new chucks operate on standard North American voltages.
