ROHM Showcases Prowess in Workholding Technology at EMO 2015

SUWANEE, Ga., – At EMO MILANO 2015, ROHM will present new workholding innovations that fulfill industry demands for increased efficiency, ergonomics, weight reduction and convenience. In Hall 2, Booth G18/H19, the company will showcase electrically powered clamp release units; redesigned compact vises; micro-clamping technology; lightweight key bar chucks; complete workholding solutions for crankshaft machining; and an online custom clamping jaw configurator.

EMO attendees interested in conserving energy and reducing costs will want to check out the new clamp release units ROHM has added to its popular e-QUIPMENT line. Like all of the clamping and gripping products in the line, these clamp release units are powered by electricity as opposed to hydraulics. As such, shops and machine tool builders can now achieve even higher levels of efficiency through ROHM’s electro-mechanical systems. Plus, the entire e-QUIPMENT line makes the concept of all-electric machine tools a reality.

RÖHM recently redesigned its popular RKE NC-Compact vise clamping system that provides horizontal, lateral and vertical mounting options. Known for its high working accuracy, EMO attendees will get to see how this vise’s improved ergonomics make it even easier to use in CNC machining operations.

When it comes to the production of delicate, extremely small workpieces, ROHM paves the way in micro-clamping technology. EMO attendees will learn how the company’s highly specialized clamping systems for this complex market segment allows manufacturers of medical devices, watches and jewelry to securely clamp components without having to worry about deformation.

Show attendees in search of new ways to maximize the potential of their milling and turning machines will want to see the DURO-TA XT key bar chuck. ROHM engineered this manual chuck with weight reduction, workpiece accessibility and application flexibility in mind. Up to 75 percent lighter than competitive designs, the DURO-TA XT features extended and easily detachable guideways that allow for an unmatched clamping range and the quick conversion between small and large workpieces. Additionally, through the direct mount on the base body, these guideways provide high rigidity, stability and protection against dirt and dust.

To reinforce its strength as a one-stop clamping and gripping supplier, ROHM will spotlight complete workholding solutions for crankshaft machining at EMO. These solutions will include steady rests, power chucks, grippers and swivel units. Because these products are compatible with each other, high-volume parts manufacturers can streamline their efforts and optimize their production by using ROHM as their sole workholding supplier.

The web2product online product configurator will round out the company’s latest innovations on display at EMO. When a standard product is unable to meet a special clamping requirement, manufacturers can use this online tool to easily configure a customized clamping jaw and follow its progression in real-time. ROHM guarantees the manufacture of individual, customer-specific clamping jaws within five days.

EMO MILANO 2015 takes place October 5 – 10 at the Fieramilano exhibition centre in Italy.
