MACH 2018 was a huge success for Schunk Intec with the company announcing that lead generation was significantly higher than the 2016 event. From a stand more than 20% larger than in 2016, the gripping systems and clamping technology specialist received a high level of interest in a complete range of product lines.
Schunk used MACH as an opportunity to hold a special ceremony on its stand to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary in the UK. At the show, established product lines won plaudits and generated a high level of enquiries, however, it was new technology like the Vero-S Aviation stationary clamping system that really sparked the interest of MACH visitors.
Making its MACH debut, the Vero-S Aviation is a pneumatically actuated, zero-point clamping system developed for the direct clamping of structural components in the aerospace industry.
Also making its MACH debut was the new Co-act (collaborative actuator). As part of Schunk’s gripping system programme for safe human-robot collaboration – said to be the world’s first intelligent gripping module of its type – the Co-act was certainly a focal point at the show. The system permits adjustments to the gripping process to be made in real-time using diverse sensor systems.
Further stand-out solutions on the stand were the Vero-S quick-change pallet system, the Tendo hydraulic tool holder, the PGN-plus gripper, Magnos magnetic clamping technology, Rota-S manual lathe chuck and more.
