Development & Innovation
SMW‑AUTOBLOK is exceedingly focused on quality and innovative solutions. Our company offers a wide range of products designed for high accuracy, precision and the highest repeatability.
Developed for custom solutions, our products and have a set-up time close to or equal to zero. Our dedicated Applications Office assists customers and helps analyze their issues to develop solutions that meet and exceed their requirements.
Our PROOFLINE® products are fully sealed and have the important advantage of greatly reduced maintenance and quicker set-up times. Our recently introduced products including the AP® and NT® series of sealed chucks, BP-style through-hole chucks, and self-centering IEPD/C® chucks for thin-walled workpieces, have high productivity thanks to the reduced down-time for maintenance and a constant of grip force — allowing a more continuous process accuracy and quality.
With Industry 4.0, clamping is increasingly being used to automated workflows and require greater precision and workpieces with very small 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 clamp force able to be adjusted without unclamping the workpiece, allowing its position and grip to remain unchanged.
E-motion refers to our electro-mechanical actuation flange of standard power chucks on mill/turn centers, with wireless power and sensor transfer via an inductive coupler with both electronic and mechanical safety systems. We operate with strict checks and controls on our production lines and, in particular, on our new range of E-Motion products.
