In today’s machining environment, the complexity of machining tasks and the variety of workpieces require better workholding solutions. In response, König has developed a new generation of quick-change chucks. These chucks minimize tooling expense as well as changeover times helping you to achieve more efficient machining operations.
Better Workpiece Flexibility
Machine tools equipped with König’s quick-change chucks allow faster change of clamping tools versus machines with conventional chucks.
One Connection for All Clamping Tools
By harmonizing the adaption configuration, a simple effortless change of the clamping device is possible.
Easy and Safe Operation
The quick-change chuck is operated manually by a hexagonal key. By means of the pressure being built up within the clamping sleeve, the mandrel or chuck is centered, clamped, and axially located against the flange with positive force. This results in solid full-contact clamping which assures an absolutely deflection resistant connection between quick-change chuck and workpiece clamping tool.
Operation of Clamping Tools as Usual
Usually, the clamping mandrels and chucks are operated directly by the hydraulic system of the machine or by a pressure transmitter which is integrated in the quick-change chuck. On relaxing, integrated springs push the piston back to the starting position.
Made-to-Measure for Every Machine
The type, as well as the specific design of the quick-change chuck, is individually tailored to the construction of the machine tool, the machining tasks, and the shape of the workpieces.
