Hoffmann Group launches 5-axis vice with spindle quick-change system and rotatable clamping modules. The Hoffmann Group, one of Europe’s leading system partners for quality tools, has introduced its new GARANT Xpent 5-axis vice at AMB 2016. The vice is optimised for 5-face machining and can be quickly and easily adapted to any machining strategy. Flexible clamping options are ensured by the construction and variability of the clamping modules, which can be rotated by 180 degrees.
For the first time, the Hoffmann Group introduced its Industry 4.0 vision for the machining sector at the AMB 2016 in Stuttgart. The basis for this is the GARANT 360° Tooling Platform, which already provides an integrated service concept for tools and which the Hoffmann Group intends to develop further.
