The advanced technology QX comes with intelligent improvements, both mechanically and magnetically. By using coherent Block-pole-field in the monolithic frame construction of the magnetic chuck stiffness was significantly increased - despite lower overall height. Similarly, the revolutionary block field technology reduces Epoxyd-resin-areas and improves the magnetic holding force and the air gap behavior. The thread in the soft magnetic poles are fitted with wear-resistant tool steel inserts.
QX magnetic clamping plates are available in different heights and in clamping blocks. There are two different pole sizes to choose from. Depending mainly to expected workpiece geometry, choosing between poles of size 50x50mm or 70x70mm.
Pole size 50x50mm generate a magnetic field that penetrates the workpiece about 12mm, which is why they are suitable especially for thinner and smaller workpieces. Another advantage is that especially in smaller workpieces more pole transitions are used, which ensures a more uniform stress. The compared to 70x70mm pole poorer air gap behavior and the higher up effort (longer pole extensions) must be mentioned as a disadvantage. The nominal holding force is super strong 160N/cm2 = 4kN per pole.
Pole size 70x70mm generate a magnetic field that penetrates the workpiece about 18mm, which is why they are suitable especially for larger workpieces. The excellent air gap behavior also allows uneven workpieces securely tighten. In addition, on the 70 poles pole extensions higher lift can be used (height adjustment). The nominal holding force is super strong 160N/cm2 = 7.8kN per pole.
