The Delphin System from GF Machining Solutions offers clamping forces of 60,000N per chuck face and with an accuracy of 5 microns.

The System 3R Delphin Zero Point system from GF Machining Solutions provides an affordable clamping system for use during heavy milling operations on a variety of machine tools. With the Delphin system, manufacturers can increase their overall productivity by streamlining setups and reducing machine idle time.

The System 3R Delphin system has been optimized to handle any type of machine tool, including those with T-slot or grid pattern tables as well as machines with pallet changers. Its design features flexible references to allow quick implementation of existing fixtures and pallets, which provides economic and productivity advantages. By minimizing the distance between the connection’s receiver’s reference surfaces and the workpiece to be machined, the mounting is more stable, enabling operators to use the highest cutting rates.

The Delphin System boasts clamping forces of 60,000N per chuck face, with an accuracy of 5 microns. It is available in pneumatic and hydraulic actuation operating systems for a large variety of machine tools to enable the machining of various sized workpieces and for easy automation adaptation.
