Jan. 13, 2011
Electro-permanent magnetic clamping plates with square pole technology for maximum retaining force, flexibility
The M-TECHS SP50 and SP70 for rapid positioning and securing of workpieces of various sizes.

Carr Lane Roemheld's M-TECHS SP50 and SP70 is a new, versatile clamping system for machining centers that offers clamping as quickly as 1 to 2 seconds. It makes possible 5-axis workpiece machining in a single clamping operation.

The systems are electrically energized only during the magnetizing and demagnetizing phases. The electro-permanent magnetic clamping plates with square pole technology are designed for maximum retaining force and flexibility. Multiple platens can be controlled with a single control unit, independent of the power supply.

Carr Lane Roemheld Manufacturing Co. supplies machine tool accessories that speed production and increase productivity for manufacturers and machine shops, primarily those supplying automotive, aerospace and appliance markets. In addition to magnetic workholding systems, it supplies hydraulic and pneumatic clamping solutions for CNC machining and factory automation; quick tool-change products for stamping, injection molding, compression molding, and forging; and quick pallet-change system kits for CNC systems.

The M-TECHS SP50 and SP70 are suitable for rapid positioning and securing of workpieces of varying sizes. The developer assures the system will maintain performance over a long service life, with a low cost of investment.
