Minimal set-up times and increased productivity through the use of the HASCO clamping fixture A8001

The user-friendly HASCO clamping fixture A8001 permits the cost-efficient clamping of standard system plates (K-plates and ejector plates). Set-up times during the clamping process can be considerably shortened, and productivity of the processing machines can be clearly boosted.

Precision bored positioning holes permit both rapid and secure variable clamping of different mould sizes with very high repeat accuracy, in a range of just 10µm. Horizontal and vertical processing of all the standard mould dimensions can be carried out without any problems.

Positioning/locking washers used in conjunction with a special expanding collet system ensure that a friction-locked and keyed connection is achieved through the system holes and that the plate to be processed is securely positioned even when intensive machining is carried out with high load limits. In conjunction with specially designed distance elements, processing can be conducted on five sides from just a single clamping position.

Sealing plugs prevent undesirable metal chips from making their way into the unused positioning holes, thus avoiding the need for elaborate cleaning during mould changeover.User-friendly handling is ensured through coloured sealing plugs, which indicate the hole positions for commonly used positions, and separately equipped plug-in modules for accessories, which are sorted according to system diameter.With corrosion-resistant clamping plates in stainless steel and DLC coated functional elements, minimal wear is guaranteed as well as a long service life for the system.

The multifunctional HASCO clamping fixture A8001 offers economic advantages thanks to the rapid and high-precision processes it permits during clamping, as well as through the feasibility of processing more than one side. Special customer wishes, such as alignment to your zero point clamping system or round base plates, etc., can be implemented in a very short time by way of special solutions.
