Clamping tool standardization results in attractive pricing, fast shipping and service
LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – The new Orange Line from RÖHM, which covers drill chucks, live centers, lathe chucks and machine vises, comprises standardized product selections with several valuable advantages, including excellent price-performance ratios, high availability and fast repair services.
The Orange Line’s EXTRA RV-E keyless and PRIMA-L keyed drill chucks, available in different sizes and clamping capacities, accommodate a variety of applications, including hole drilling in steel and wood, percussion drilling and driving screws. Keyless clamping with the EXTRA RV-E involves a simple turn of its metal and plastic sleeve, while the PRIMA-L gets its clamping strength via DIN 6349 toothing. Both drill chucks have a through-hole feature that enables them to rotate clockwise and counterclockwise.
The Orange Line’s new live centers have triple bearings for long life and high runout accuracy. Available in MT 3, MT 4 and MT 5 sizes, these centers are through hardened to withstand repeated regrinding. They also have slim housings to achieve lower interference shapes. Able to accommodate maximum workpiece weights of 661 (MT 3), 1,102 (MT 4) and 1,388 (MT 5) pounds, these centers withstand high clamping pressures and allow for high turning speeds without the need for separate lubrication.
In the manual lathe chucks category, the Orange Line offers the ZG geared scroll chuck, which features a high-value, vibration-dampening cast iron body and one-piece jaws. The ZG chucks are available in six standard sizes, each in 3-jaw and 4-jaw versions. These jaws move across the entire clamping range so that users can clamp workpieces of different diameters without having to change or shift the jaw.
Based on a modular design platform, the Orange Line's new RB machine vise is available as a mechanical (RB-M) or power intensified (RB-K) solution. The vise provides long guidance of its moveable jaw and accurately covers a wide clamping range with quick adjustments. All of the vise's wear parts, primarily the jaw guides, are hardened and ground to provide long-lasting durability. To ensure its accurate positioning, the vise's longitudinal grooves precisely match the t-slots of a machine tool table. Furthermore, the vise works with rotation plates to achieve angular settings for increased part machining flexibility.
