What are the possibilities with the modular system?

With the modular system, the basic clamping device remains mounted on the machine and simultaneously serves as an interface for other clamping devices.

Whether for I.D. or O.D. clamping, saw cuts or bar work, the pull-back effect of the mounted add-on clamping elements enables solid clamping with optimum characteristics, such as high rigidity, vibration reduction, and maximum metal removal rates.

Therefore, the innovation is not only in the individual clamping devices themselves, but rather in the modular principle, which due to its diversity of application possibilities that drastically minimizes set-up times and decreases production downtimes.

SE and RD variants in comparsion

SE variant [hexagon]

The hexagon TOPlus version offers an additional 25 % increase in holding power relative to the RD variant – due to full-surface contact of the clamping element in the clamping device body.


Additional benefits over the RD variant

  • Higher metal removal rates, higher output, lower piece costs
  • Vibration dampening effect
  • Particularly efficient for difficult machining
  • Sealed against contamination from outside – low maintenance, consequently less machine downtime and increased process reliability. Particularly useful for fine-particle nonferrous metals such as brass or even cast iron. Consequently also particularly well suited for stationary machining.
  • Optimal lubrication due to lubricating grooves in the chuck body
  • Full through-bore or top face run on the workpiece or front end-stop

RD variant [round]

The familiar SPANNTOP version with round clamping geometry in the chuck body and clamping head offers significantly greater holding power than what is offered by traditional 3-jaw chucks or clamping collets, due to the pull-back effect and circumferential clamping.
