Review: Schmalz Matrix-Plate Clamping System
Schmalz Matrix-Plate: Introduction
The metalworking industry is arguably one of the steadiest markets in the world for more than a few decades now. After all, the majority of new technologies that have popped up during these last few years have often been a byproduct of metal workshops and welders. In addition, the continuous development of the tools and equipment in the market have done nothing short of ensuring that the proficiency of the industry will be carried over to the future. Which then brings us to our equipment review for today, the Schmalz Matrix-Plate Clamping System.
Schmalz Matrix-Plate: Features
The Schmalz Matrix-Plate Clamping System is one of the most compact workspaces you’ll ever encounter in the metalworking tools market. And thanks to the Schmalz Matrix-Plate’s well-balanced design, compact build, and modular structure, it’s also able to conveniently handle and switch between workpieces made of aluminium and other nonferromagnetic materials such as CFK or plastic. Thus, making itself a perfect complement for workshops who handle a variety of materials day-in and day out. Furthermore, the modular design also allows flexible adaptation to the workpiece geometry and the type of processing.
The Matrix-Plate comes with a body made of high strength and precisely manufactured aluminium frame that allows it to execute a bunch of heavy-duty tasks despite its slightly small frame. To add, the machine also features distortion-free clamping of large, flat workpieces; up to 30% increase of horizontal holding force without deformation, vacuum-activated/deactivated, optional friction pads, and laterally mounted mechanical stops among many others.
The design of the Matrix grants the operator the ability to easily mount on the machine table using clamping claws or a zero-point clamping system. While the mechanical stops serve as positioning aids and for taking up supplementary lateral forces. The enlargement of clamping area is made possible by connecting several matrix plates, which is one of the equipment’s signature features.
