Precision Cartridge Mandrel for Internal Clamping

A new mandrel provides consistent workpiece ID clamping of very small diameters for grinding, turning, milling, drilling and measuring.

Thanks to the system’s quick-clamping screws, operators can complete manual clamping changes in approximately 30 seconds.

Precision machine shops are often working with small, intricate workpieces that require specialized clamping systems. In response, Röhm Products of America has introduced the lightweight, compact Agilis power-operated cartridge mandrel clamping system. The company says this new mandrel provides consistent workpiece ID clamping for small diameters for grinding, turning, milling, drilling and measuring applications.

The Agilis’ mandrels axially draw in workpieces against a workstop and can hold workpieces with diameters as small as 10 mm with concentricity tolerances within 0.01 mm. A manual quick-change system is available that cuts the time needed to switch out clamping devices, Röhm says. The quick-change system employs adapter plates to accommodate quick-clamping screws, so that operators can complete manual clamping changes in approximately 30 seconds while maintaining positioning accuracy within 0.005 mm. The manual quick-change technology enables the use of central lubrication and airflow measurement devices. Read e-Technology Energizes the Future of Gripping and Clamping to learn more about Röhm.
