SCHUNK particularly developed the VERO-S NSE-A3 138 automation component for automated machine tool loading as well as for applications in handling, assembly, and automation technology. The clamping module is part of the extensive SCHUNK VERO-S modular system, which allows for more than 1,000 possible combinations for efficient workpiece clamping. For process-reliable workpiece and clamping device exchanges, the automation component is equipped with a powerful blow-off function, which carefully cleans the bearing surface during the exchange process. In addition, a spring-actuated cone seal prevents chips or dirt from entering into the change interface.
An enormous pull-down force of 8,000 N or 28,000 N with actuates the turbo function and a high dimensional stability of the module body benefit the rigidity of automated quick-change solutions. Thus, even high tilting moments and shear forces can be reliably absorbed. Depending on the application, the modules are combinable in any desired number. Centering inserts with flexible elements ensure positional orientation with high repeat accuracy and maximum process reliability in automated operation. The repeat accuracy amounts to < 0.005 mm. Due to the conical fitting, the clamping pins can also be joint into the modules eccentrically, making this process incredibly easy. The actual clamping procedure is done via spring force without any external energy supply; it is form-fit and self-locking. This means the workpieces remain safely clamped in the case of a sudden drop in pneumatic pressure. A pneumatic system pressure of six bar is enough to open the module.
Integrated anti-twist protection and media transfer
If the modules are individually used, a standard integrated anti-twist protection ensures a stable position. By means of the integrated media transfer, fluids with permissible system pressures of up to 300 bar can be transferred, for example, to control clamping devices using Plug & Work or to supply components for automated monitoring. As part of the VERO-S modular system, the automation component benefits from a variety of combination options - from standard plates to SCHUNK TANDEM clamping force blocks to mechanical vises from the SCHUNK KONTEC series.
