Double Diaphragm Chuck with Simultaneous Loading (Middle Clamping WSS)

Manufacturing processes of high-precision small parts are regularly optimized, in order to obtain the best possible cost-benefit ratio from the production. Large quantities in short cycle times are the decisive basis for optimization of production processes.

Your Benefits

  • 50% reduced cycle time when processing 2 parts in 1 operation
  • precisely produce small parts in high quantities and short single cycle time
  • customer-focused process modification (workflow)

Project Profile

Customer:corporation company
Services:process design
Application: valve train, cam phaser

When multiple parts can be produced in one clamping, a reduction of single piece time by 50% is ensured.

Through the use of a double diaphragm chuck, we have achieved exceptional results in the precision grinding of internal bores.

Our solution approach makes it possible to machine two work pieces simultaneously and to load and unload them in parallel through the diaphragm chuck. The unloading takes place on the side on which the internal machining occurs.

The following measures stood at the forefront here:

  • part clamping optimization
  • further development of existing clamping concepts
  • process-oriented modification of work piece process
