Lang Technik UK ‘Holding’ your attention at MACH

Following decades of providing market leading Lang 5-axis workholding and Automation systems through a UK agent, Lang Technik UK was established to provide existing Lang users and new customers with first-class levels of sales and application support.

The staff of Lang Technik UK invite MACH 2022 visitors to stand number 6-172, to witness demonstrations of the company’s renowned products.

Lang Technik UK will be exhibiting Makro•Grip the original and still the leading form-closure technology that provides the highest holding power for 5-face machining. Makro•Grip uses innovative pre-stamping, a technology specifically developed by Lang, where workpieces are stamped outside of the machine tool with up to 20 tons of pressure before being clamped in Makro-Grip 5-Axis Vices. Components requiring high holding power, but are also prone to deformation, can be securely clamped by the use of this highly secure stamping process.

Also being demonstrated will be Lang Technik’s famous Quick-Point system. Quick-Point acts as a highly effective interface between the machine table and clamping devices and is offered in an extremely wide range of variants. The fast, accurate and repeatable system allows users to considerably reduce setup times and to constantly adapt to the changing needs of their business. Quick-Point is able to provide a cost effective solution for every machine table and application.

It can be used in vertical and horizontal machining centres, on 3 and 5-axis tables and 4th axis rotary or trunnion systems. The attachment of the zero-point plate to the machine table or faceplate is achieved easily through the use of a prefabricated hole patterns for common t-slot distances, bore patterns and bolt circles or individual, customised mounting options.

Making a MACH debut on the Lang stand will be the Robo Trex 52 Automation system that is able to load and unload machine tools and provide highly efficient lights-out production. Also being put through its paces will be the ingenious HAUBEXlow cost automation system.

Lang Technik UK director, Gareth Barnett said: “Although we have many competitors and imitators, Lang Technik is the ‘Original’ and remains at the very cutting-edge of workholding design and manufacture. We are proud to be backed by the engineering, design, product knowledge and years of experience of Lang Technik Germany.

“Our team of experienced engineers have many years of machine tool experience and applications related to all aspects of workholding and we are looking forward to greeting all potential Lang Workholding customers at MACH 2022.”
