Square pole technology boosts productivity in flat grinding

SCHUNK MAGNOS parallel pole, square pole, and radial pole plates ensure reliable work-piece clamping, quick workpiece changes, and particularly efficient processes when it comes to grinding applications.

Among other things, SCHUNK MAGNOS square pole grinding plates boost productivity by up to 200%, compared to conventional solutions using parallel pole technology. Movable pole extensions make such a difference possible and en-sure homogeneous, deformation-free clamping. These allow all flat workpieces to be ground micron-precise with regard to flatness and parallelism. Multiple grinding operations, repeated changes to the clamping configuration, and time consuming mounting are no longer necessary with the MAGNOS square pole technology.

The compensating magnetic chucks are equipped with adhesive force regulation as standard to enable individual adjustment of their adhesive force to the workpiece in question. A special magnetic chuck design makes it possible to machine even extrahardened workpieces, and then effortlessly remove them from the magnetic chuck. MAGNOS square pole grinding plates fitted with movable pole extensions are ideal for flat grinding of large, thin workpieces with a material thickness of 4 mm or higher. Due to the grid size of 32 x 32 mm, small or narrow parts can also be clamped free of deformation. If required, the square pole plates can be clamped to already installed parallel pole plates to form a complementary clamping solution.

Their monoblock design ensures high stability and rigidity, thus minimizing vibrations and improving the surface finish. Additional stops can be installed in the threaded holes located on the side allowing alignment of the workpieces in a matter of seconds. The SCHUNK MAGNOS square pole grinding plates are available in 12 standardized sizes. Individual dimensions are also possible.
