A wireless pressure control (RSS) is now available from Schunk for use with pneumatic power chucks. The control monitors the clamping pressure in OD clamping of the lathe chuck. Through wireless sensors, the clamping pressure is controlled continuously during the machining process. The signal is transmitted directly to the control of the machine. If the clamping pressure drops below the minimum value, the machine control immediately stops the machining process.
The pressure control system is available for all Schunk pneumatic chucks type ROTA TP/EP/TB/TB-LH and EP-LH.
- Signal transmission takes place every 12–15 seconds
- Trouble-free signal transmission for every machine
- A double version option is available to control clamping pressure for ID and OD clamping (beginning with 200mm size)
- Retrofit-option for chucks beginning with size 400mm
