For HSC workpiece machining the clamping forces according to DIN 69893 are frequently no longer sufficient. The idea to create an extremely rigid connection between the tool and spindle by placing the clamping element directly against the internal spindle contour, reached its design limits, due to the cross sections and surfaces available for the force transmission. With their HSH-gripper, BERG-Spanntechnik have met the requirements for clamping forces notably exceeding the values specified in DIN 69893. HSH-gripper are intended for the clamping of hollow shank tooling with central cooling lubricant supply.
HSH-gripper consist of six sturdy clamping claws, which, held by means of an annular spring, execute a tilting movement when the hollow shank tooling is changed and removed. During clamping, the centrally arranged draw-bolt transfers the actuation force onto the clamping segments, where it acts as a direct clamping force without further force deviation. The generously dimensioned face of the draw-bolt has been provided for tool ejection. The constructive design of the clamping element offers a large clamping reserve. The internal spindle contour is easy to manufacture.
