SAV North America introduced a line of magnetic chucks that deliver heavy duty holding for accurately cutting parts. The Radial Pole High Power Electro-Permanent Chucks hold parts while allowing full access in a single set-up, to reduce labor costs and increase throughput of finished work.
The chucks are engineered with heavy-duty holding force of 245 pounds per square inch. The surface area of the chucks allows for hard turning without sacrificing speed and feed capabilities of machine tools. Part size is unrestricted, and those with limited surface areas can be held securely, reducing the chance of slippage, inferior cuts and wasted materials.
The Radial Pole High Power Electro-Magnetic Chucks are built in standard designs, and each is built to a user's specific turning application and machine model regardless of size. The solid body construction allows for high balance and stability of a workpiece, which provides flexible mounting options. Top tooling raises workpieces to be turned or cut, so they are more accessible with quick changeovers. A separate top plate is fully sealed for preventing short-circuiting that could occur with coolant leaks. Custom mechatronic part centering is an option for error-free workpiece placing.
These chucks have a greater clamping force than other magnets due to electro-permanent magnet technology. A programmable release cycle is activated to fully demagnetize the chuck and release workpieces. The chucks operate on standard North American voltages.
