ECONOMICAL , PRECISE , QUICK
- 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.

Chucking system

Chucking systems
e.g. mechanical collet: For clamping complex workpiece contours for 5-sided machining in the machine tool.

Design:
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.

Application:
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
5-sided machining.
The collet can be milled off to 42 mm, allowing new workpiece contours to be introduced

The features of our toggle clamps at a glance:

> 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
components.

Applications:
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.

MAGNETIC CLAMPING TECHNOLOGY
AMF MAGNETIC CLAMPING TECHNOLOGY,
THE WINNING TECHNOLOGY!


Based on years of development work and experience, AMF has been able to go beyond the typical limitations of obsolete electromechanical clamping systems, which are unsafe, unreliable, subject to overheating, and maintenance-intensive. The innovative electro permanent technology of AMF magnetic clamping technology guarantees great strength, total security and long-term reliability. The double magnetic cycle comprises a series of square poles in a chessboard arrangement. At the 4 sides of the poles there are static permanent magnets, while under the poles there are reversible magnets.

The windings of the reversible magnets generate a brief, strong magnetic field that is able to reverse the polarity of this type of magnet in a fraction of a second.

MODULAR FIXTURE SYSTEM
Flexible clamping technology belongs to flexible production technology.

You need modern clamping technology to optimally take advantage of the cost and competitive advantages of today's NC machines and similar systems. It contributes 10% to 30% of the efficiency effect. A flexible fixture system is needed, not expensive, time-wasting device construction.

To this end, we offer you a CAD library layout and design. With the uncompromising combination and coordination of software ad the modular fixture system we offer you key benefits. You can implement the device construction in a faster, more efficient and more manageable manner.

Modular fixture system – the benefits

> Two standardised sizes suitable in practice.
> 100% use, since every hole can be used for positioning and clamping.
> Cost-effective through hardened fit, thread and surface.
> Easy handling design through situation-based clamping: mechanical and/or hydraulic.
> Efficient through "flexible" device construction: the machine utilization time is increased by means of reduced setup and idle-machine times.
> The standard dimensions of the pallets, angles and cubes are suitable for machine tables in accordance with DIN 55201.

VACUUM CLAMPING TEC:
Vacuum clamping systems are used above all in the wood, plastics and non-ferrous metals industries for quick, simple machining; they are compatible with CNC machine tools.

POWER CLAMP:
When using clamps in non-cutting and cutting metal finishing processes, as well as in mould making, clamping force and precision that meet the highest demands are required. With the sliding power clamp made of alloyed tempered steel, we offer an exceptionally robust and versatile mechanical clamping element, which can achieve extremely high clamping force of up to 25 kN.

CLAMPS:
Where high clamping forces or flexible adaption to shapes and sizes of workpieces are demanded.

VACUUM CLAMPING TECHNOLOGY
THE MOST IMPORTANT ON THE SUBJECT OF VACUUM CLAMPING TECHNOLOGY

WHAT IS VACUUM?

A vacuum is the state in a space which is free of matter. In practice, we already call it a vacuum when the air pressure in a space is less than that of the atmosphere.

Units of measurement used

The most common units are the pascal and the bar.
> 100 Pa = 1 hPa
> 1 hPa = 1 mbar
> 1 mbar = 0,001 bar

Vacuum clamping systems

Vacuum clamping systems are used above all in the
wood, plastics and non-ferrous metals industries for quick,
simple machining; they are compatible with CNC machine
tools. Here vacuum technology is used in connection with
special handling systems, for example in order to fix an
aluminium plate and machine it from all sides. This increases
productivity and cost-effectiveness: the fixing does not
cause any damage to the workpiece, and no laborious,
time-consuming aligning of the workpiece is required.
