Bore clamp MINI, hydraulic, centric
max. operating pressure, see table,
min. operating pressure 40 bar,
lateral compensation per clamp ±0.2 mm.
The actuating piston is double-acting. Body, clamping segments and tension bolts are made of nitrided tempered steel. Two-part clamping segments are externally interlocked. Four fastening screws are supplied as standard. Oil supply via oil channel in fixture body.
The hydraulic bore clamp is preferred for use on workpieces with complex external geometries that must be clamped for machining. After the clamping segments are applied to single-attachment clamping holes with low depth, a secure 5-sided processing can be performed without difficulty. Workpieces can be installed or removed automatically with handling devices.
Two clamping segments are spread in parallel, thus ensuring contact on the entire surface in every position of the tension bolt. This facilitates a high clamping power and ensures very low wear. Elastic rings hold the clamping segments together and seal them against entry of chips. Depending on the material, the external serration is pressed into the clamping hole with more or less force, thus permitting the required positive fit. The built-in plate springs achieve a max. pull-down stroke of approx. 0.2 mm during clamping. The integrated air connection L1 is for cleaning the clamping area. This blow-off can also be used as a mount check for blind holes. The integrated air connection L is used for clamping control. The pull-down movement opens the passage of a compressed air hole, thereby creating a pressure drop of approx. 2 bar, which can be evaluated as a clamping control.
The holding bolts have a sword-shape for better pre-positioning of the workpieces. The complete clamping-segment/holding-bolt unit can be turned 90° so that an optimal force flow toward the workpiece centre can be set and locked. By setting the clamping elements, overloading of the clamping hole ( spreading force ) with low clamping rim is avoided. The bore clamp is also a contact surface for the workpiece. The workpiece contact surface is hard-metal coated (µ =0.3), which markedly increases the displacement force.
The lateral force when inserting the workpiece must not exceed the “lateral force” table value. The radial force must be observed.
