Presentation at EMO Hannover of Smartchuck.
Benefiting from the EMO Hannover fair, without a doubt the reference fair in Europe in the machine tool sector, TDG Clamping Solutions presented its latest development, the “Smartchuck”, a revolutionary new concept of an intelligent chuck encompassed within the Industry 4.0 concept that has been developed by TDG in collaboration with the prestigious Basque technology center, IK4-Tekniker.
It is an innovative concept, which allows, thanks to its latest-generation sensorized claws, monitoring information as important as the dynamic clamping force, among others.
Being able to know the mooring force of the chuck dynamically is a technological advance of great value, not only in terms of safety (with the Smartchuck the risk of loose parts is reduced to practically zero), but also for the finishing of parts, because with the Smartchuck, possible deformations in the piece to be machined are also avoided.
The “Smartchuck” was presented during the EMO fair, not only at the TDG stand but also at the stand of the prestigious Company Geminis Lathes, which integrated a second prototype of “Smartchuck” in their latest generation GT5i lathe, fully oriented to 4.0 applications, where real-time process data knowledge is key.
During this event, many potential clients and partners came to the stands of TDG and Geminis Lathes, interested in what was undoubtedly one of the star novelties of EMO Hannover in terms of machine safety.
