 A new range of compact, three- and four- sided tower clamping systems manufac- tured by Roemheld group’s Hilma division in Germany has been introduced to the British and Irish markets by Roemheld UK, Hitchin.
Intended for use on 4- and 5-axis vertical machining centres as well as horizontal- spindle machines, the steel monobloc SCT towers, which are either mechanically or hydraulically actuated, are optimally sealed against swarf and other contamination.
Applications range from use on manually loaded machines through twin-pallet- change centres up to fully automated flexi- ble manufacturing systems. Clamping range is from 6 to 210 mm and holding force is from 25 to 40 kN, high enough to avoid the need to pre-machine workpieces, even when they are secured on just a few mil- limetres of material.
Versions in alternative lengths, and with dif- ferent mounting holes including for zero- point clamping together with a large selec- tion of grip, pendulum, step, soft and Vee jaws suitable for different machining tasks, complete the offering.

be manoeuvered with Roemheld's manually operated RW series changing carts. There is also an electrically-driven RWA cart for handling a maximum load of 1,600 kg.
All versions feature extensive safety equip- ment including an automatic docking sta- tion with slip protection.
With the cart connected to the station, dies can be effortlessly guided and positioned on the changing table via ball inserts, which are lowered during docking to prevent slip- ping. Height of the changing table can be adjusted hydraulically. An optional auxiliary drive is available for the manual carts allow- ing a travel speed of 2 km/h. Stand 17
