The machining zero point is defined by the centre of the chuck in the GPS 240 system. The chuck can be mounted on the machine table of any machine tool.
The standardised hole pattern of the pallet allows clamping from below of workpieces, fixtures and accessories such as vices, three-jaw chucks and magnetic tables. This gives collision-free mounting, even with five-sided machining.
The economical, pressure-die-cast aluminium pallets are very light, making them especially suitable for manual handling. Naturally the GPS 240 is also suitable for automatic changing.
The chuck seal prevents dirt penetrating between the chuck and the pallet. This simplifies maintenance and lengthens the life of the components. A lifting mechanism which operates on locking/opening protects the references when loading heavy workpieces.
