Electronic clamping pressure control
A pressure sensor 4 is installed in the Hydra Expansion Arbor 5 from Hydraclamp.
To measure clamping pressure, the digital pressure measurement device "Power Control" 1 from Mytec-Hydraclamp is connected to Hydra Expansion Arbor 5 via magnetic contacts 2 + 3.
For hand-activated clamping via clamping screw 8 the clamping pressure in the Hydra Expansion Arbor 5 is displayed digitally in the bar on the display of the "Power Control" measuring device.
The clamping pressure, and thus the expansion of the Hydra Expansion Arbor, can always be precisely controlled and reproduced via this clamping or measuring process.
The "Power Control" system can also be used with automatic clamping. It is then directly connected to the machine controller.
High-precision - controlled and finely-controlled clamping force for friction-free manufacturing.
The expansion range of Hydra expansion arbors and Hydra expansion chucks in normal design is maximum 0.3% of the respective clamping diameter.
This maximum expansion can lead to deformation and damage with thin-walled and sensitive workpieces. To eliminate this possibility, an electronic clamping pressure control, the"Power Control” system, was developed.
With this system the user can accurately control the clamping pressure and thus the expansion and adapt to the respective tolerances to be clamped.
This ensures that the required manufacturing quality will be achieved and maintained for the same workpieces and same processing. This is due to the fact that the same clamping pressure, and thus the same expansion can always be reproduced.
"Power Control" can be used in all hydraulic clamping systems from Mytec -Hydraclamp.
