Development & Innovation
SMW‑AUTOBLOK is solidly focused on quality and innovative solutions. Our company offer a wide range of products designed for high accuracy and highest repeatibility.
Our products are developed for custom solutions and a set-up time equal to 0. A dedicated Applications Office work with customers to analyze their problems and develop solutions that meet their specific requirements.
Our PROOFLINE® products are fully sealed and have the important advantage to need low maintenance. Our recently-introduced products, including the AP® and NT® series of sealed chucks, BP-style through-hole chuc ks, and self-centering IEPD/C® chucks for thin-walled pieces have high productivity thanks to the reduced down-time for maintenance and a costance of gripping force allowing a more constant process accuracy and quality.
We approach Industry 4.0, with clampings increasingly being used in automated workflows, requiring greater precision and workpieces with ever-smaller tolerances. Our F500 E-motion range received a Industry 4.0 Award. This same commitment to innovation is what enables us to redefine what energy efficiency can be. The wireless transmission of energy and signals is a massive advantage, with clamping force able to be adjusted without unclamping the workpiece, allowing its position and grip to remain unchanged.
E-motion refers to our elecro-mechanical actuation flange of standard power chucks on millturn centers, with wireless power and sensoric transfer via an inductive coupler and both electronical and mechanical safety systems. We operate the strictest checks and controls on our production lines and in particular on our new range of e-Motion products.
