Hilma-Römheld: Magnetic clamping technology for rapid die changing

In addition, Hilma has developed another magnetic clamping system especially for vertical presses. After approval by the TÜV this system will be presented for the first time at the K trade fair. According to Hilma, the new developments allow, like the magnetic clamping systems of the standardised Clamp & Go pro­duct line presented in 2009, access to the rapid change technology at an affordable price. The outstanding feature of Hilma electromagnetic clamping elements is that all non-standardised injection moulds can be changed rapidly and without any problem. Thanks to the full-surface clamping force applied to the magnetic clamping plates this technique ensures high process security, fewer rejects, and reduced maintenance costs, says Hilma.Against the background of the new 2006/42/CE machine directive, the company has revised the control system for its magnetic clamping plates to suit the new regulations. With a performance level adapted to the machine or the press, the new control system makes a contribution to minimising risks.
