These “pole extensions” can also be configured to facilitate part location, magnetic side grip for holding small parts, and clearance for through machining.
- Applies to all styles of Electro-Permanent Chucks
- One size magnet can accommodate various sizes
- Transferring magnetism to side of part
These blocks conform to the shape of the part when the chuck is “off.” Once the chuck is magnetized, the self-shimming pole extensions not only lock to the part, they also lock in position without deformation.
Warped plates can be machined flat and stepped parts can be machined without warping.
