5- and multi-axis machining with multiple clamping

Multi-axis machining | Multi-sided machining with multiple clamping – function:

Multi-sided machining offers a fast way to manufacture workpieces as the process can be done in several axes in one operation. With the aid of CAM software better workpiece surfaces and more complex workpieces can be produced and less human labour is necessary.

The SPREITZER hydraulic centering clamping and indexing unit for multi-sided machining holds the workpiece holder as well as the workpiece pallets and custom-made fixture pallets with the use of clamping bolts.
The high precision positioning, the radial indexing, the form-fit clamping as well as the strong clamping force characterize this system.

One application for hydraulic centering clamping and indexing units is the 5- and multi-axis machining of workpieces with simultaneous palletizablity of the workpiece holder.
The fixture consists of a clamping bridge or clamping column, in which the clamping units are integrated.
The radial turning of the workpiece holder in the clamping units with a following highly precise positioning and clamping enables the complete machining of the workpiece in just one operation.

Advantages of SPREITZER clamping units for multi-sided machining:

  • Economical and efficiently, on 3/4-axes machining centres
  • Multiple-clamping
  • Hydraulically operated, stand-alone without CNC-controller
  • Retrofittable solution
  • System patented
  • Accuracy 0,003 mm

The clamping units are used as an universal quick change system for highly precise positioning, indexing and clamping of workpieces, pallets or custom-made fixture pallets.
The clamping units can, depending on the application, directly placed into the machining table or in specific adaptor plates.

  • Centering and repetition accuracy of 0,003 mm

  • 5- and multi- axes machining of workpieces and the simultaneous palletizablity of the workpiece holder
  • Form-fit clamping, radial indexing
  • Increased precison of workpieces through complete machining within one operation
  • Shorter downtime between operations needed due to the prepared workpiece holder thus a shorter machining time
