According to Schunk, its Vero-S clamping system reduces setup changes by 90 percent with this fast, accurate, quick change workholding and positioning system. Infinite combinations are possible as any workholding can be mounted on top, from a standard vise to a custom fixture, for a reliable and consistent change-over.

For a micron-precise connection between machine table and workpiece, the clamping system makes optimal use of even the smallest machine table. This system can combine with the comprehensive Schunk stationary workholding range or existing workholding. Vero-S quick-change pallet system delivers fast and precise resetting of workpieces, clamping devices and other equipment on three, four, or five-axis machining centers.

Workpieces can be directly clamped and machined from five sides without restricting accessibility. This is done by screwing the clamping pins of the quick-change pallet system directly into the workpiece. The components are then quickly exchanged in the machine, positioned, fixed and clamped all in one step with a repeat accuracy of less than 0.005 mm. The clamping height of the workpieces can be adjusted with module height extensions, so the machine spindle can reach all five sides of the workpiece without any special tools.
