New pneumatically-operated Stark SPEEDY airtec zero point mounting system from Roemheld

Metalforming Machinery Makers' Association : 06 November, 2006  (New Product)
The pneumatically-operated Stark SPEEDY airtec zero point mounting system from Roemheld now comes in an additional three compact sizes. Making Roemheld a more versatile choice than ever for companies looking to increase their productivity when producing small batches and product variations, who do not want, or are unable to, use hydraulic components.
The range's advanced pneumatic operation makes it ideal for oil-free and clean area industries such as food processing and medical technology. Rigorous testing in excess of 800,000 cycles also makes Stark SPEEDY airtec ideal for high volume manufacturing in industries such as automotive. It has a central locking option to ensure no ingress of swarf plus the ability to air clean the surface and the table.

This extension to the Stark SPEEDY airtec range now offers a choice of sizes ranging from 80mm diameter to 155mm diameter. These offer three retaining forces of 10kN, 20kN and 30kN and each operate with a single mounting nipple assuring compatibility throughout the range.

Stark SPEEDY airtec locks mechanically using a series of wedges against the inserted nipple and releases pneumatically for ease of operation and safety. It offers disc spring clamping of 20.000N and is easily released using compressed air at only 6 bar of pressure, without the need for a pressure converter or ancillary equipment. High process repeatability of less than 10 microns is ensured on all SPEEDY units due to the high accuracy of the zero point nipple and tolerances of the main unit.

The stark SPEEDY airtec system can be easily designed in to new and or existing set ups thanks to its modular design. A housing is available to enable the system to be fitted directly onto pallet or plates for maximum versatility. It has also been designed for retrofitting onto existing cubes or tombstones.

Each size is available in four versions, depending upon the application it will be used for: the standard version is available with a support ring, then there is also the option of an integral central locking system with air blow off to remove table swarf which offers the ability to keep coolant and swarf away from critical areas, and the option of a series of positional timing bores around the base, on the front face of the unit.
