Manufacturers of gear cutting machines and users in the field of fine machining should make a beeline for Booth E22 in Hall 3 at this year’s EMO. Here, RINGSPANN will once again be presenting the youngest star of its comprehensive clamping fixture range: The mechanical expanding sleeve mandrel HDDS. As a both precise and flexible alternative to hydraulic expanding clamping tools, it has since provided multiple examples of its performance capability in various gear wheel assemblies. It is currently under discussion by the first manufacturers to become part of the standard configuration of their gear cutting machines.

Bad Homburg, August 2019. – Increasing demands on accuracy have for years determined the mechanical production of spur or taper wheels for gear manufacturing. While gearing qualities of 8 or 9 in accordance with DIN 3961 used to be viewed as sufficient for most applications in this area of fine machining, today clients often write qualities of 7 or 6 into the product specification of their suppliers. Even higher are the demands on gear wheels for motorsports – here, gearing qualities of 5 or 4 have long since become standard. “The clamping tools deployed during machining – in addition to the machines and tools – play a key role in achieving such qualities. Ideally, they support gearing technicians not only when fulfilling increasing quality demands, but also offer them more manufacturing flexibility and economic leeway”, says RINGSPANN’s Volker Schlautmann. Visitors of this year’s EMO will get a glimpse of how the concrete proposal of the head of sales and design of the company division clamping fixtures looks in Hall 3 at Booth E22. Because that is where RINGSPANN will once again be showcasing the latest star of its current clamping fixtures range: The mechanical expanding sleeve mandrel HDDS.
