The C Series CNC teach lathesare fitted with the Romi ManualMachining Package (RMMP) thatallows simple operations to becompleted without any type ofprogramming. Using the RMMP,an operator can machine partsin manual mode using the handwheels, and also in automaticmode using a joystick and startcycle. The operator can also fillin the fields on the CNC screen,indicating spindle speed, feeds,cutting depth, coordinates, andangles, and start the machiningwith the cycle start button.

Clamps Offer Fast, Versatile Holding Options
work on flat, angled or round stock
Magnetic V-Pad Clampsoffer welders a fast,low-profile, and versatile holding solution fortheir workpieces. TheV-Pads’ dual, pivoting,magnetic-heads can position and hold angles upto 180-deg. Each V-padcontains four powerfulmagnets: two on its back, and one on each pivotingfoot, giving the welder several options for holdingconfigurations. Quick to set up and great for repetitive applications, they’re easy to position and workon flat, angled or round stock.

Inflatable Pipe Stoppers
prevent the production of static or sparking
Single-Ended Inflatable Dams are available in a
variety of shapes and sizes for a range of appli-
cations including seal-
ing, blocking, pressure
testing, and isolation.
Pipe stopping equip-
ment gives the user the
opportunity to isolate
a section of pipeline
to carry out repair and
maintenance work. All Inflatable Stoppers are
manufactured with a strong internal latex balloon
covered in a waterproof polyurethane coated ny-
lon bag for low friction and to prevent the produc-
tion of static electricity or accidental sparking.

Precision Linear Stage
has position repeatability up to 0.1 microns
A high-precision linear translation stage family for HighVacuum (HV) and Ultra-HighVacuum (UHV) applications,the L-509 vacuum stage series, is offered for 3 different vacuum levels: 10-6, 10-7, and 10-9 hPa. Linearmotion ranges of 26, 52, and 102 mm are available. Theprecision-ground ball screw and high-resolution motorsallow sub-micrometer resolution with excellent positionrepeatability up to 0.1 microns. The vacuum linear stageseries was designed from the ground up for vacuumcompatibility, with each component qualified to workunder the specified conditions. Everything, from thebase materials, nuts and bolts, encoders, cables, andlimit switches were selected for optimal performance.PI (Physik Instrumente) USA

Adjustable Angle Tooling for Pressroom
provides a holding force of 35 Nm
A swivel unit tooling for use in the pressroom is a flexible
Designed for flexibility, the swivel units work with Bils-
solution to reduce the number of operations in a press line
by producing more parts via a single stamping. Whereas
most products can only be used at a specific tilting
angle, the swivel tooling is a universal solution that
can be adjusted to the exact degree required to grip
and handle parts for each application. Additionally, as
compared to other offerings, the unit is 30% lighter
for improved production rates and longer tool life.
The swivel unit offers a swivel angle of +/45-deg. (90-
deg. max) and a compact design for accessibility even
in difficult-to-reach, tight applications. The swivel angle
is easily readable on a scale located on the top of the
unit. Used as a single tooling unit, it weighs 7.94 lb., or a
connecting bridge can be used to create a double swivel
unit with synchronous operation and weighing 16. 7 lb.
The unit offers a holding force of 35 Nm with speed
that is adjustable via air exhaust restrictors. The end
stops feature dampening shock absorbers to slow down
and reduce the vibrations during motion. Optional
features include censoring that will automatically
detect the angle position and a shut-off valve that
locks the tilting position angle during installation and
removal to ensure operator safety.
