- THE AMF ZERO-POINT SYSTEM
By using modern AMF zero-point systems, you optimize fixture and workpiece changeover in your production, correspondingly reduce set-up times on the machine and so save money!
The benefits of zero-point clamping technology are obvious:
> Increase in machine run-time
> Very fast workpiece or fixture changeover
> High repeatability
> A uniform interface for all machines
> Positioning and clamping in a single step
The clamping nipple in our zero-point system is the interface between the machine table and the workpiece or fixture. It ensures exact positioning and secure clamping. The resulting work forces are transferred through the clamping nipple to the clamping module.
The precisely manufactured clamping modules of the AMF Zero-Point System ensure a secure and firm hold of the workpiece or fixture to be clamped.
e.g. mechanical collet: For clamping complex workpiece contours for 5-sided machining in the machine tool.
The main body is from burnished steel. The collet, which is supplied as standard, has a diameter of
99 mm and is made from anodised, high-strength aluminium. The mechanism in the main body is
protected against dirt and coolant. Flanged base for fastening to the machine table. Provided on the
underside is the holder for the AMF K20 Zero Point system as well as grooves for positioning on AMF
Zero Point clamping modules with indexing.
For clamping complex workpiece contours for 5-sided machining in the machine tool. The collet is
machined to the contours of the workpiece, with a minimum location depth of 2 mm. Because the
clamping force is evenly applied to the component in a radial direction, the workpiece is clamped
without distortion. The clamping force can be adjusted via the clamping screw, using a torque wrench
for example. Consequently, especially suitable for thin-walled pipes and workpieces.
Thanks to the simple collet replacement, various workpieces can be quickly and safely clamped for
The collet can be milled off to 42 mm, allowing new workpiece contours to be introduced
> Ergonomic two-component handle
> Safety clamping piece with finger protection
> Retainer for clamping screws.
> Stainless steel rivets
> Removable rubber cap
The most important facts ...
Advantages of „toggle“ principle:
> Large and quick opening.
> Clearing the workpieces completely for unimpendend handling of work.
> Large power transmission. Minimum operating effort giving maximum clamping force.
> The clamps are self-arresting, they remain locked, resisting the force produced when machining
A wide range of uses can be found for these AMF toggle clamps owing to their favourable power to movement ratio, and their easy action. These versatile clamps can be used in the metal working industry when drilling, welding, bending, grinding, testing and fitting, as well as in the wood and plastic industry in glueing, drilling, cutting and milling jigs.
