Traditionally, the workpiece is fixed with clamps or other locking systems that prevent full access to the tool; it therefore becomes necessary to provide 2 or more placements to complete the processing.
A magnetic system allows the ring processing in a single positioning, without the use of brackets. You can then work simultaneously on the outside diameter, inside and upper face without obstruction.
Conventional magnetic solutions provide a magnet covering the whole table, with quite high economic investment. FlexoMag revolutionizes the concept of magnetic chuck; now you can set the magnetic area actually corresponding to the piece; just what you need.
FlexoMag is modular: the combination of several modules allows the clamping of pieces in any diameter starting from 700mm..
The magnetism allows a uniform clamping of all the surface of the workpiece, rather than for individual points. This prevents the workpiece deforming, especially in the presence of rings with thin thicknesses.
The Nuflux system removes at the end of processing any possible magnetic residue from the workpiece.
The double anchoring surface configuration allows FX to clamp itself on the machine table in a quick and convenient way.
FX fits into all machines; in case of tables with irregular surfaces it is sufficient to provide a support plate on which to position the modules.
The mobile pole extensions adapt the magnetic surface to the workpiece. The fixed extensions, on each module, are non-magnetic and adjustable in height and axially.
Shimming and stress release operations are executed quickly and automatically, without deformation.
The system is easily expandable; with FX1 each module is equipped with the input connector and the output to be able to create a chain with other FX modules, with the possibility of virtually infinite diameters.
The FX modules provide an articulated joint at 45° and can be arranged either circularly, “U” shaped or also following the profile of the piece to be machined. They are therefore indicated for not only turning but also milling operations for light / contouring / welding.
