SMW Autoblok (Wheeling, IL), which designs and manufactures rotational chucks, stationary workholding, tooling and custom engineered solutions, has launched its first-ever Stationary Workholding promotion, offering up to 30 percent off on premium clamping products including APS, STV, SINTEX and SinterGrip technology.
The company says its promotional goal is to help its global network by saving time and money, increase productivity and reduce machine downtime during unprecedented times.
A myriad of SMW Autoblok clamping solutions enhance machining operations. Sale products include:
- APS 140 + Top Pallets
- PTP – Protected Pneumatic Twin Vise
- STV – Spring and Air Operated Twin Vise
- Tetrablok + Tombstone
Many of the models offered in the promotion including APS 140, are Proofline sealed, protected against corrosion and feature a built-in air cleaning function to ensure the clamping system’s support surface remains clean and free of chips during changeover or automation. The 140 pull-in forces for each module can be increased up to 45 kN by the turbo function.
The SINTEX 100 and 125 vise series offer clamping ranges from 155 to 250 mm and include SMW Autoblok’s premium SinterGrip insert technology providing 3.5 mm clamping range (versus 300 mm standard for other industry models).
