MC No Chance for Corossion the New KONTEC KSC2 Manual Basic Clamping Vice 1 400x275

The new KONTEC KSC3 manual basic clamping vise offers users a significant gain in process reliability. Its nickel-plated base body protects against corrosion and wear and extends its range of applications.

 

When it comes to process-reliable workpiece clamping in machining of raw and finished parts, the KONTEC KSC centric clamping vise has established itself as a highly efficient all-rounder. Now clamping device expert SCHUNK presents a successor that is in no way inferior in terms of reliability and precision.

The new product also offers optimum corrosion protection due to its nickel-plated base body. This means that it can now be used even in demanding environments, for example with high humidity. Its extremely flat design and improved interfering contour ensures optimum accessibility, especially for 5-axis machining. This optimizes the use of the machine room. Another plus for process reliability is its encapsulated spindle. Its enclosed design with better chip discharge via lateral grooves protects from dirt and reduces maintenance costs. Since its bearing is free from play, the vise has an excellent repeat accuracy of up to +/- 0.01 mm, thus enabling highly precise machining of the first and second sides with only one clamping device.

 

Flexibly combinable

The centric clamping vise is 100% compatible with the predecessor KSC model and can be exchanged without any alterations to the program. Its unique, extensive range of system and top jaws and the easy jaw exchange via just two screws enables this multi-talent to be flexibly adapted to new clamping tasks in just a few steps.

In addition, its VERO-S interface, which comes as standard, enables the KSC3 to be combined with the flexible SCHUNK stationary toolholding and workholding modular system, resulting in a wide range of clamping options. The KONTEC KSC3 is available in sizes 80, 125 and 160. Due to the efficient force transmission, the workpieces are held securely with clamping forces of up to 35 kN.

MC What to Consider When Choosing a New Motion Control Solution 1 400x275

When it’s time to consider a new motion control solution for your application, rule #1 is “Solve the problem, then worry about the design.”

This is easier said than done, but not if you apply a disciplined, time-tested framework. First, you must clearly understand the problem and the local environment. Failure to do so often results in a suboptimal motion control solution or complete failure.

Secondly, the designer should evaluate the application in light of proven existing motion control solutions. The engineer must also take stock of their skills and the expertise of the team in order to effectively choose the right options and to accurately anticipate development time and resources.

Before choosing any motion control products, the design engineer needs a set of principles to guide his or her selection. Long term experience and common sense has taught us seven important, but often overlooked, principles. 

These key learning have been encapsulated in a simple notion known as the SHAIRED paradigm:

  • •Simplicity of design to reduce problem-causing complexity and cost
  • Homework; calculate the required torque, inertia, duty cycle, etc.
  • Analysis of the application and alternatives must be thorough
  • Integration of the system into existing factory automation
  • Redundancy built in to a system to exceed performance expectations and deal with unexpected changed in load and operating parameters
  • Economical solution for the short and long term.
  • Development time must be accurately estimated

Using the above guidelines during motion control system design, evaluation of alternatives, and final product selection will help increase the odds of application success.
