Automatic Clamping System

Description

REGO-FIX Tool Corporation has expanded its well-established powRgrip line of toolholding systems with the new PGU 9500 automatic clamping unit. Smaller in size, the new unit is ergonomic, energy efficient and practically maintenance free.

The PGU 9500 operates basically the same as REGO-FIX’s existing clamping units. However, it has less moving parts and incorporates long-lasting durable proximity switches as well as other design changes that significantly boost reliability and system longevity as well as energy savings.

To enhance system speed, ease of use and operator efficiency, REGO-FIX streamlined the PG 9500’s exterior design and strategically relocated some key control elements. Operators can quickly reach the unit’s emergency stop switch now located up front and the main power switch conveniently situated at the side of the unit. All exterior buttons are flush mounted for operator safety and to prevent damage.

REGO-FIX PG toolholding systems rely on the interference between holder and collet to generate their clamping force. Unlike other clamping systems where heat or hydraulics are used to expand the material, the PG uses the mechanical properties of the holder material to generate tremendous gripping force with run-out below 0.0001”. Interchangeable collets are available from 1/8" up to 1", including metric sizes, and will hold both carbide and HSS tools.

PG units take less than 10 seconds to press in a tool or remove it from the holder. Because no heat is used, tools can be used immediately after a tool change. Cycle testing exceeded over 20,000 insertions and removals, outperforming other systems on the market.

In recognition of the PG 9500, REGO-FIX received a renowned Red Dot 2015 product design award. The new unit won an Honorable Mention within the category of machinery and robotics. The award is a revered international seal for outstanding design quality and granted based on degree of innovation, functionality, handling, durability, ecological compatibility and clarity of function.
