BERG Hydrodock System

Hydrodock units form the basis of a very compact and flexible clamping system. They were originally conceptualized as for head change systems on large machining centers, but also find applications in diverse areas such as injection molding machines.

Print Data Sheet

Application The Hydrodock clamping system is used as the clamping system for the machine tool interfacing with changing processing units. For example, these include milling heads and attachment spindles. Once the processing unit has been positioned on the machine, the clamping force is built up at the adapter ring by the segments being drawn in. The absolute self-locking feature of the system guarantees a high mechanical stability of the interface in connection with maximum safety. Therefore, no permanent pressure is required following the clamping process.

Design Features A hydromechanical force intensifying and self-locking clamping unit pulls in the draw-bolt and thus the collet. During this process, a very high energy density is achieved in a minimum amount of space by means of the integrated force intensifying gear. The collet engages in adapter ring and draws it in until the processing unit makes contact and the clamping force has been built up. The unclamping pressure displaces the clamping dog forward and thus safely releases both the self-locking and the clamping action due to the changing surface situation.
