An excellent example of the Schmalz innovative products is the vacuum clamping system MultiClamp. It allows small and mediumsized work pieces to be clamped ergonomically. Work pieces can be processed on all sides without having to be reclamped.
The unit works by using an integrated vacuum generator created using compressed air. The Multi-Base allows for stage-less 360° rotation and 90° swivel ability. As the Multi-Clamp uses compressed air there is no requirement for a separate expensive vacuum pump and the flexible five-axis Multi-Base allows the user to alter the position of the work piece while clamped.
