Clamping System for the Aerospace Industry

The often very complex geometry of parts used in the aerospace industry frequently require the use of clamping solutions matched specifically to the application. Maximum precision and careful handling of the workpieces are also very important.

Schmalz has already developed special solutions for many customer-specific projects. With the Matrix-Plate, it is possible to clamp even very thin workpieces securely without damaging them. Further arguments in favour of vacuum clamping systems are the reduced set-up times and the high level of flexibility.
