Any company that is involved with workpiece milling, now has access to Lang Technik’s Makro-Grip technology which provides a workholding solution to almost any clamping requirement from raw material to the finished workpiece.
Dimac Tooling, Australia and New Zealand’s leading supplier of accessories and workholding solutions for CNC milling and CNC turning machine tools, is now the distributor for Lang Technik’s cutting edge innovative products.
“We are thrilled to have been appointed Lang Technik’s sole distributor in Australia. This well known German company is recognised as one of the leading manufacturers of workholding and machine tool automation. Every month thousands of clamping set-ups are delivered to customers all over the world to help them increase their production efficiency,” said Dimac Managing Director, Paul Fowler.
Makro-Grip stamping technology is a patented form-closure technology which provides the highest holding power for 5-face machining worldwide.
The stamping technology, also called pre-stamping, involves the workpiece being stamped outside of the machine tool with up to 20 tons of hydraulic pressure, before being clamped in the Makro-Grip 5-axis vise. Clamping scenarios that require high holding power, but where the danger of workpiece deformation exists, can be mastered with the stamping process.
For 5-sided machining, where optimal accessibility has to be achieved, stamping technology in connection with the Makro-Grip 5-axis vise provides the ultimate solution and the very best the market has to offer. Stamping units are available for work benches and on a trolley, with different sizes being available.
“Makro-Grip stamping technology provides tremendous material savings due to minimal clamping edge requirements,” Mr Fowler went on to say.
The compact Makro-Grip 5-axis vise offers unmatched holding power and the best accessibility for 5-face-machining. It offers high repeat accuracy for inserting workpieces without any endstops and due to its lightweight is easy and flexible to handle.
“The Makro-Grip 5-axis vise is the perfect solution for all challenging clamping tasks and which simply is unbeatable in 5-sided manufacturing,” Mr Fowler added.
Other innovative products in the Makro Grip range include the Dual-Clamping vise – a retrofitting kit for 5-axis vises that allows you to convert your existing Makro-Grip 5-axis vise into a Dual-Clamping vise within just a few moments. The Makro-Grip Dual-Clamping vise is perfectly qualified for batch production.
The Makro-Grip Automation vise is a 5-axis vise for automated manufacturing whilst the Makro-Grip Automation Dual Clamping vise comes with a robust and corrosion-resistant steel body. On its side faces are integrated automation interfaces for the handling gripper which can be used as an ergonomic recessed grip as well. With the retrofitting kit, the Dual Clamping vise can be converted into a 4-fold automation.
The Profilo Clamping vise is a clamping system for all shaped parts allowing for the use of different types of profile jaws on one vise body. The Universal Avanti vise offers great handling characteristics and enormous set-up time savings thanks to a quick jaw exchange system.
The Vario-Tec Centering vise is a convenient and versatile clamping solution for semi finished parts whilst the Ino-Grip 3-Jaw chuck is an automatable chuck for milling round parts.
A unique product in the Lang Technik range is the Cleaning Fan. The fan automatically cleans the machine table, pallet and/or workpieces after the machining process is complete.
“Because all Lang Technik’s extensive products come from the one place they are perfectly matched and interfacing problems with other systems do not exist. The modular building system and the multitude of combinations and capabilities are the reason that their workholding systems can be used in almost any machining centre,” Mr Fowler summed up.
Like all the products we sell, the Lang Technik range will have the full back up and support of Dimac technical personnel to ensure the products are installed correctly and operate at optimum performance,” Mr Fowler concluded.
