  • SMW Autoblok Prepares All-Star Lineup for IMTS 2018

    IMTS2018The SMW Autoblok headquarters is buzzing with activity as we prepare for IMTS 2018. The action all happens at McCormick Place in Chicago on September 10 – 15. Plus we’re pumped about our new and more prominent location in the West Hall, Booth# 431700.

    We will be welcoming visitors and giving demonstrations in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish. Whatever the language, though, there will definitely be a lot to talk about. Here’s a little preview of some of the innovations that will be highlighted on our show floor this year.

    Precision Vises

    Want to reduce the waste of raw materials and minimize deformation? Check out our GENIUS and SINTEX precision vises for 5-axis machine tools. Both feature our patented SinterGrip technology, which requires only 3.5mm of clamping surface. A series of solid carbide serrated inserts grip the workpiece securely. This allows higher cutting speed and feed rates for increased metal removal rates.

    Zero Point Clamping
    Looking for maximum grip during heavy duty machining applications? Be sure to see the APS (Automatic Positioning System) at IMTS. The APS Zero Point Clamping System is a universal connection between the machine tool, the clamping device and/or the workpiece. It locks into position by lining up pins on the clamping device or the workpiece with holes on the chuck. When joined, the combination is automatically positioned to the zero point. The APS can be used for turning, milling, measuring or grinding.

    Need a sealed chuck with a large through hole? The BP Series Chuck is the only one of its kind in the industry. BP Chucks combine the flexibility of a standard open center power chuck with the long life and precision of our Proofline® sealed chucks, making it ideal for bar and bar stock clamping as well as shaft clamping. Their constant grip force allows for excellent repeatability and consistency, whereas non-sealed chucks can lose up to 50% of the grip force if not maintained properly. Sealed chucks require minimal maintenance intervention to provide premium performance.

    These devices are only the high points. Make sure to add SMW Autoblok to your MyShow Planner and visit us at IMTS in Booth# 431700 for a complete workholding experience.

  • Better Productivity with the BP Series

    BP_SeriesOur brand new BP Series Chuck is taking the lead in innovation. As the only sealed chuck of its kind on the market with a large through hole, the BP Series combines the flexibility of a standard open center power chuck with the long life and precision of our Proofline® sealed chucks, making it ideal for bar and bar stock clamping as well as shaft clamping.

    Available in three variations, these 3-jaw chucks use collet pads for small diameter parts and traditional top jaws for chucking operations. The constant grip force of the BP chucks allows for excellent repeatability and consistency as well as safer operation, whereas non-sealed chucks can lose up to 50% of the grip force if not maintained properly.

    The BP Series is Proofline® sealed for a 5-10 times longer lifespan. The continuous lubrication and optimization of the clamping force reduces wear on the chuck resulting in longer maintenance intervals, thus reducing downtime and loss of productivity. These chucks also hold up in the harsh environments of dry machining, abrasive powders, high pressure or corrosive coolants and more.

    The BP-D utilizes master jaws with inch serration while the BP-M operates with metric serration (suitable for Japanese jaws). The American standard, tongue and groove master jaws, are available on the BP-C.

    Secured with Proofline® sealing for a longer lifetime and ultimate precision, the BP Series has many options for flexible production.
