The Vero-5 quick change pallet reduces setup changes by 90 per cent, according to Schunk, with this fast, accurate quick change, workholding and positioning system.
Workpieces can be clamped directly and machined from five sides without restricting accessibility. The components are exchanged quickly in the machine, positioned, fixed, and clamped all in one step with a repeat accuracy of less than 0.005 mm. The Tendo series toolholders offer excellent vibration damping and improved surface quality, says Schunk. It prevents chipping at the tool's cutting edge and offers consistent setup with a t-handle and no changes in runout, even with multiple tool changes for roughing, drilling, reaming and finishing.
