Safe And Efficient Clamping of Your Workpiece Pallets and clamping devices from ZEISS

We offer various clamping devices that allow you to safely and intelligently clamp your workpieces. With our pallets you also save valuable time during clamping.

Clamping devices

What to consider when clamping a workpiece:

All features accessible

First you must ensure that all elements being measured can be accessed by the styli.

Safe and stable positioning

The workpiece must be able to be firmly positioned on the support so that it cannot deform or move.

Neither overtensioned nor too loose

Your workpiece shouldn’t be overtensioned or too loose. Your workpiece will then still be able to “function” regardless of temperature fluctuations, i.e. react without becoming overtensioned.

Flexible clamping

Vices from ZEISS

With the centrically clamping vices, a variety of workpieces can be securely clamped. They can be used very easily and flexibly, whether on pallets, grid plates or machine tables (from thread size M6) - the vice fits on a wide range of measuring instruments and thanks to its concentric tension even on rotary tables.

Modular measuring fixtures

ZEISS fixture kit systems

The standardized fixture kit systems are designed for different clamping requirements. The range of applications extends from mechanically processed small parts to large-volume body components that have to be measured horizontally or vertically. They are modular, individually expandable and reusable. The design principle allows fast, cost-effective creation of measuring fixtures.

Reduce non-productive time – double the throughput

ZEISS Pallets

During loading, each coordinate measuring machine is at a standstill. However, this unproductive time can be prevented with pallets. Pallets allows workpieces to be clamped outside the measuring device and in advance of the measurement. Within a few seconds, the loaded pallets can then be aligned on the measuring device - without being measured again.
Additional time saves another calibration pallet. A fixed reference sphere holder with a sphere and, if required, also a reference ring and glass standard are provided on a pallet of this kind. To carry out the calibration, the user simply places the pallet on the machine and starts the process on the measuring machine.
