Cleveland-based Jergens Inc., a manufacturer of standard tooling components, vises and other workholding equipment, has added a zero point clamping system to its line of quick-change fixturing solutions.
The Jergens zero point system (ZPS) combines alignment, high-accuracy positioning and high clamping forces with hydraulic or pneumatic actuation, according to the company. Jergens plans to offer individual modules, and complete systems and plates, as well as design and technical assistance.
The Jergens ZPS is compact but still provides holding and pull-in forces. The balls are 784% larger than those used in competitive locking systems and roll freely in the form-fitting ball channel, which allows them to easily reposition themselves. All components are made of stainless steel.
