VERO-S NSE plus clamping modules

 

The quick-change pallet module for infinite flexibility, maximum precision, and speed in workpiece clamping.

 

VERO-S NSE plus combines two basic functions:

  • High precision centering using short tapers
  • Locking via 2 clamping slides

The VERO-S NSE plus clamping module offers you the complete functional package: corrosion-free and robust design as standard, completely sealed and therefore maintenance-free. The patented dual stroke system with turbo function achieves pull-in forces of up to 40 kN. Combine the VERO-S NSE plus with the standard clamping technology from SCHUNK to open up a world of more than 500 variants of workpiece clamping.

Your added value

  • Patented fast and clamping stroke between clamping slide and piston, provide enormous pull-in forces

    • Pull-down force (Standard) 7.5 kN with NSE plus 138
    • Pull-down force (Turbo) 25 kN with NSE plus 138

  • Holding forces up to 75 kN
  • Designed completely in stainless steel
  • High-quality sealing elements for a long life span
  • Turbo function to boost pull-down force integrated as standard as well as slide monitoring
  • Large flat surface for optimum support and maximum rigidity

  • Small and variable inside micrometers can be flexibly implemented
  • Specialist in tool direct clamping, pallet clamping, and handling
  • Easy and fast retrofitting of every machine
  • Patented drive concept, which transforms the spring-loaded clamping force into a high pull-in force for self-retaining and safe clamping

  • VERO-S NSE mini is used for direct clamping with double clamping modules and is particularly suitable for:

    • Workpieces handled from machine to machine in a production line
    • Workpieces which would be normally clamped with special clamping devices due to their geometry
    • All small workpieces, which have to be machined from all sides

VERO-S for automated machine loading

 

VERO-S NSA plus quick-change pallet station and VERO-S NSR robot coupling for extremely fast and precise automated machine loading.

 

Perfect interaction for automation.


Automated loading and unloading is becoming more and more the standard even for small batch sizes and individual parts. The goal is to reduce set-up times and enable round-the-clock production with low manpower requirements. Sophisticated interaction between innovative clamping devices and automation components from the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems ensures the highest level of precision and reliable processes too.

The very slim design of the NSR robot coupling makes it possible to load pallets extremely close to the machine table. Low height due to the combination of clamping station and clamping pallet, ensuring maximum use of the machine area.

With the VERO-S workpieces and clamping devices can be accurately positioned and clamped to a reference value fully automatically within seconds. The actual set-up operation takes place outside of the machine during the processing time.

Use the NSR robot coupling and VERO-S quick-change pallet system combination in conjunction with the comprehensive range of stationary clamping equipment from SCHUNK. Fast and efficient set-up - even with a batch size of 1.
