Rapid workpiece change on milling/turn centers

The VERO-S NSL turn clamping station from SCHUNK, the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems is a real productivity booster for milling/turning centers.

The VERO-S NSL turn clamping station from SCHUNK, the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems is a real productivity booster for milling/turning centers. It is based on the highly efficient VERO-S quick-change pallet system, and transfers the effect of the rapid workpiece change onto the lathe machining. By means of the patented double angled stroke, and the integrated turbo function, the NSL turn achieves pull-down forces of up to 125 kN, and holding forces of up to 375 kN. Therefore the clamping station from the innovative family-owned company ensures an extremely rigid and reliable clamping of devices and workpieces. A centering taper ensures a runout accuracy of less than 0.01 mm. Locking of the three or five integrated clamping modules is done via two clamping slides. It is self-locking and uses form-fit clamping. During machining the clamping station is unpressurized. Integrated springs provide for a permanent and secure clamping. For opening the locking, a pneumatic system pressure of 6 bar is sufficient.


Completely sealed

In order to increase the product life and process reliability, all functional parts such as base body, clamping pin, and clamping slide are made of hardened stainless steel. The maintenance-free modules are completely sealed and are reliably protected against chips, dust and coolant. A display shows the current clamping condition, and thus avoids errors before clamping. An intelligent plumbing of the module leaves enough space for bore holes on the base plate. Therefore the NSL clamping station can be used on all conventional machine types, and is suitable for speeds of up to 2.000 rpm. In size 450 three clamping modules are available for manual chucks of size 315. Size 570 offers more than five clamping modules for manual chucks up to size 630 mm.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
