Established in 1983, Spreitzer’s areas of expertise ranges from modular clamping systems and modular construction systems for machining centres to manual quality control and bespoke equipment including mechanical clamping systems.
A product range that ETG Workholding will be particularly promoting is the MZR range of mechanical centre vices which offer the ability to securely clamp raw material workpieces without the need for pre-stamping.
ETG Workholding’s product manager Rob Beckett explained: “There are many options for raw material clamping but the vice is only part of the solution. Raw materials mostly need pre-stamping which adds further cost over and above the purchase cost of the vice and adds time to what is essentially a very straightforward operation.
“MZR vices are ideal for working on multi-axis machining centres as they are a compact design with a small trunnion footprint yet still offer maximum access and the ability to enlarge the clamping width with reversible jaws.”
Raw part machining uses the grip jaw option with the second set up for finish machining using the smooth jaw option – all without pre-stamping.
Depending on the jaw clamping width selected (four options between 70 and 195mm) a maximum clamping force of 40,000N is achievable. This grip contributes further to reduced cycle times enabling raw workpiece materials to be rapidly positioned, clamped and positioned ready for machining.
Mr Beckett added: “Our agreement with Spreitzer is exciting as it brings a whole new range of high quality German manufactured equipment to the UK at very competitive prices. It fits perfectly with ETG Workholding’s philosophy of only offering quality products and we will be adding to the Spreitzer portfolio throughout 2017 to create a highly comprehensive workholding range.”
