ADVANTAGES FREEZE CLAMPING TECHNOLOGY
The sensitive parts are clamped without pressure – deformations and fractures occurring when clamping workpieces are avoided. Without special pre-machining and regardless of their shape, the parts can be clamped on only one side. In addition, five-axis machining is possible for each operation. Ice can be used to “hold” a wide variety of hard and soft materials: Metal, plastics, ceramics, graphite, glass, rubber, neoprene, textiles, etc.
Clamping with freezing technique:
- Clamping without deformation
- Clamping without force influence on sensitive workpieces
- Clamping of smallest workpieces
For a metallic workpiece, the nominal holding force of the freeze clamping plate is 150 N/cm².
100-150N/cm² for magnetic chucks and 10 N/cm² for vacuum chucks.
>> High holding force
After loosening/thawing the workpieces, the ice offers the advantage that no residue remains on the workpiece.
>> No residues on the workpiece
