It allows fast location and clamping of components, which can be machined on five sides in one set-up. For even greater component access, the system can be complemented with three-point fixed pole extensions. The magnetic force from the clamping plate is transferred through the poles to provide maximum clamping force. In addition, flexible pole extensions with axial compensation are able to clamp rough and uneven surfaces, allowing unmachined parts to be clamped.
WNT magnetic chucks are operated at the push of a button, with power supplied and grip activated within seconds. For reassurance, the system status, which is not power dependent, is displayed so that the operator can see at a glance whether the magnetic chuck is activated.
