Zero-Point System

But what exactly is Zero Point System, and how does it work? But it’s a modular clamping system that allows for fast, easy, and accurate location and clamping of workpieces. It does this by utilizing a set of precisely machined modules inserted into a base plate and secured using a single clamping screw. Once in place, these modules provide a secure, repeatable, and accurate reference point that can quickly and easily locate and clamp workpieces of all shapes and sizes.

Benefits Of Using Zero-Point System

In the machining industry, precision and efficiency are crucial. Zero-point positioning systems play a vital role in achieving these goals by providing accurate and reliable workpiece positioning.

Improved Setup Time

Traditional setup methods involve aligning and clamping workpieces manually, which can be time-consuming and prone to human error. The Zero Point System streamlines this process by providing a quick and repeatable method for securing workpieces. It eliminates the need for tedious manual adjustments, significantly reducing setup time. 

Enhanced Precision

Achieving precise and consistent positioning is critical in machining operations. The Zero Point System ensures accurate workpiece alignment and repeatability, producing precise machining outcomes. Eliminating manual adjustments minimizes the risk of human error, contributing to higher overall precision and quality in the manufacturing process.

Increased Efficiency

The Zero Point System optimizes machine utilization and productivity. Its rapid workpiece changeover capabilities enable seamless transitions between different jobs or setups. This reduces machine idle time and maximizes production efficiency, resulting in higher throughput and reduced manufacturing costs.  

Versatility and Flexibility

The Zero Point System is adaptable to various machining applications and workpiece sizes. It offers various clamping modules and accessories to accommodate different workpiece geometries and configurations. This versatility allows manufacturers to handle diverse projects and efficiently switch between tasks, enhancing operational flexibility.

Cost Savings

By minimizing setup time, reducing scrap rates due to improved precision, and maximizing machine utilization, the Zero Point System helps save costs in the long run. It enables manufacturers to optimize resources, reduce downtime, and increase overall productivity, improving profitability and competitiveness.

In summary, utilizing a Zero Point System in machining operations provides numerous advantages, including reduced setup time, enhanced precision, increased efficiency, versatility, and cost savings. By incorporating this advanced work-holding solution, manufacturers can elevate their machining capabilities, improve product quality, and gain a competitive edge in the industry.

Advantages of HTM Zero-point system

Repeated positioning Interactive positioning

  • HTM repeatability refers to the error that occurs when different workpieces are mounted on the same zero-point positioning fixture in terms of the reference point in a consistent direction. This error is known as interchange positioning accuracy.
  • HTM interchange accuracy refers to the reference point in the unified direction of the workpiece, and the error generated when the same pallet is loaded onto different zero-point positioning fixtures is called interchange positioning accuracy.
  • HTM standard repeat positioning accuracy <0.005mm
  • HTM standard interactive positioning accuracy <0.005mm

Wedge Clamping

  • High Precision: Wedge clamping offers exceptional precision in achieving repeatable and accurate positioning. The wedges are designed to fit tightly into corresponding slots or grooves, ensuring a secure and precise connection between the workpiece and the machine table. This precise alignment enables consistent and reliable part positioning, improving machining accuracy and quality.
  • Quick and Easy Setup: Wedge clamping provides a quick and easy setup process for zero-point positioning. The wedges can be inserted and secured with minimal effort, allowing for fast workpiece changeovers and reduced downtime. This efficient setup process enhances productivity and reduces the idle time between machining operations.
  • Secure and Stable Fixation: Wedge clamping offers a secure and stable fixation of the workpiece to the machine table. The wedges create a tight and reliable connection that prevents movement or vibration during the machining. This stability is crucial for achieving consistent and precise machining results, minimizing the risk of errors or rework.
  • Increased Efficiency: Machining operations can be performed using wedge clamping for zero-point positioning. The secure and stable fixation allows for higher cutting speeds and feeds, reducing machining time. Additionally, the quick setup and workpiece changeovers minimize idle time, maximizing the utilization of machine resources and improving production efficiency. Compatibility with.
  • Automation Systems: Wedge clamping is compatible with automation systems, allowing seamless integration into automated machining processes. The precise and reliable positioning provided by wedge clamping ensures smooth operation and consistent part quality in automated production environments. This compatibility enhances productivity and enables the utilization of advanced manufacturing technologies.

PVD Coatings

  • Enhanced Durability: Chrome-based coatings have exceptional hardness and wear resistance. With an HV1800 hardness rating, these coatings provide excellent protection against abrasion, erosion, and surface damage. They can withstand the rigors of demanding environments, ensuring prolonged component lifespan and reduced maintenance requirements.
  • Low Friction Coefficient: Chrome-based coatings typically exhibit a low coefficient of friction, which reduces frictional forces between surfaces in contact. This property is advantageous in applications where smooth and efficient movement is essential, such as sliding or rotating components. The low friction coefficient helps minimize wear, heat generation, and energy consumption, improving performance and efficiency.
  • Corrosion Resistance: The chrome-based coatings with a silver-gray color exhibit excellent corrosion resistance. They form a protective barrier on the surface, shielding the underlying material from corrosive elements such as moisture, chemicals, and oxidation. This corrosion resistance is particularly beneficial in applications exposed to harsh environments or corrosive substances.
  • Heat and Chemical Resistance: Chrome-based coatings resist high temperatures and chemicals. They can withstand elevated operating temperatures without significant degradation, making them suitable for heat exposure or thermal cycling applications. Additionally, these coatings protect against certain chemicals, preventing chemical reactions or material degradation.
