What Is The Zero Point Clamp System

The zero point clamping system is a unique positioning and locking holding system, which can keep zero point remains unchanged of the workpiece from one station to another, from one process to another, or from one machine tool to another. The precise clamping module requires high clamping force and repeated positioning accuracy to ensure the interchangeability on different machine tools.It is widely used in various machine tools such as vertical machining center, horizontal machining center, turn milling compound and so on

Tips for using zero-point clamping systems

If your shop is looking for a low-cost, simple and effective way to reduce setup time, consider zero-point clamping.

Similar to the mechanism that grips rotary toolholders on many machining centers, zero-point clamps employ a mounting knob and clamping wedge lock to pull a pallet, fixture or other workholding device—or even the part itself—against the ground face of a zero-point chuck. The retention knob sits inside the chuck bore and offers positional accuracy to within a few tenths of an inch and several tons of clamping force until released through mechanical, hydraulic or pneumatic pressure.

How does zero point clamping work?

The zero-point clamping system reduces errors during milling, rotating, wire or die eroding, flat or cylindrical grinding, drilling, lasering and measuring. The maintenance-free design also contributes to the superior process reliability.

How does zero point clamping work?

Zero Point MODULES clamp the workpiece, vice or fixture using high precision pull studs. Clamping pressure is released using pneumatic force and applied by releasing the air pressure, taking just 1-2 seconds to lock or unlock.
