Grinding technology depending on rational clamping technology
In the field of metal-cutting machining, a significant proportion is accounted for by the finishing and fine machining operations known as “grinding”. A rough distinction can be made between “freehand grinding” and “forced-guided grinding processes”. The latter depend on a safe positioning of the workpiece to be machined. The focus is on problems to be solved in workpiece machining by horizontally acting grinding machines.
Various clamping techniques are used for this purpose, ranging from the familiar magnetic clamping plate to precision clamping devices. The following list from SPREITZER presents a summary of the most important clamping techniques used today in the field of grinding technology.
