Tecnomagnete Milltec Grip Videos

Since becoming the exclusive UK distributor for the permanent-electro magnetic workholding systems from Tecnomagnete, interest has rapidly increased. Our technical represntative Giovanni has been interviewed about two of the different products in the Tecnomagnete range, which are shown below.

The Tecnomagnete MillTec Grip is a magnetic clamping system for milling machines and machining centres. The low-profile, frameless, monolithic clamps have a sealed, double magnetic circuit that allows uniform clamping between the workpiece and the magnetic surface and at the same time between the magnetic system and the machine table.

For 5-axis machining, the MillTec Grip Round is also available. Five sides of a component are freely accessible for milling and drilling and the light weight of the clamping system means that heavier components can be processed for a given maximum table load.

For added versatility, the workpiece can be raised from the working surface by a steel block carrying the MillTEC module. It is then possible to address machining around the periphery of the sixth side if the component overhangs the plate. It also gives more clearance for the spindle to facilitate machining of the four adjacent sides using shorter tools to minimise vibration.

If you have any questions about the MillTec Grip, other products in the Tecnomagnete magnetic workholding range, or would like a free visit from one of our technical representatives, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01725 512517 or enquiries@1mta.com.
