Spindel Quick Change (SQC) system Disengage 2 locking pins per clamping module and pull the spindle out. Insert the extension spindle. Push the pins in against the spring pressure until they engage.
Extension of the spindle
Extension of the spindle length Release the union nut by hand. (A spanner flat is provided in case a tool is needed to release the spindle.) Turn the nut back to the stop, insert the spindle extension and screw it in. Screw in the extension and make sure that the red security ring is not visible. It is thus possible to change the clamping range within a very short space of time.
Individual multiple clamping
Take advantage of the middle jaw: Clamp 2 components at the same time. The components can have different sizes. Modules are flexible and can be slid individually on the base rail. Quick fixation of the middle jaw is achieved by clamping via 2 screws. Use two turned top jaws and increase your clamping range (ideal from a base rail of more than 550mm). For components of extremely different size simply use a combination of normal and turned top jaw.
The company Berger Maschinenbau is a modern manufacturing company whose core business is machine tool building and automotive. The company has great experience in the fields of CNC milling and in assembling modules and machines. The GARANT 5-axis vice Xpent has satisfied all expectations: “The quick changeover of the clamping ranges, the wide choice of jaws and the optimum clamping force mean we can now achieve with one GARANT Xpent a range of jobs that used to require three other vices. The modular concept is really effective!”
Companies such as Hermle, DMG Mori or Alzmetall are already impressed by the wide range of clamping spans, the symmetry and the accessibility or the movement into the centre. "Optimum accessibility, flexibility in clamping, ease of operation and extreme stiffness - all this was an instant hit with us. At present it is the best 5-axis vice on the market." (Mr. Bozner, Alzmetall Technology Centre Manager)
