Autoblok Corporation was established in 1981 as a subsidiary of Autoblok of Italy, the largest power chuck manufacturer in Europe. Since 1942, Autoblok has been at the forefront of engineering and manufacturing state-of-the-art workholding, clamping and tooling solutions.
The global corporate organization is dedicated to QUALITY, PRICE, TECHNICAL SUPPORT and CUSTOMER SERVICE. Our products are manufactured to the most demanding standards in the world, yet priced competitively to those products of lesser performance. Autoblok has achieved sustained global growth by providing a superior level of customer service and technical support for our application driven product line.
In 1993, Autoblok acquired SMW of Germany. The combination of these two premier manufacturing entities resulted in the most extensive product line of high quality workholding devices in the world. Now available exclusively through its subsidiaries, reps and distributors, SMW AUTOBLOK customers are ensured a consistent, single source of superior product performance, support and service.
Autoblok is pleased to announce a new product. Here is the article about it.
After the important success of the AP and NT chucks (sealed without through hole) in high production processes where the part could be clamped with the simple radial movement (no active pull down), the market requested a new line of chucks with similar features, but with open center. To fulfill these requirements, SMW-Autoblok designed and realized the new line of BP chucks.
The BP chucks maintain the same basic features as all other “proofline” chucks
The specific features of the BP chucks are
The BP chucks brings all the advantages of the sealed chucks in our “proofline” series also to the open center standard chucks, allowing also standard machines for general use to finally use a modern work-holding system.
The BP chucks are available in the following sizes: 220-260-320.
Laser is computerized techno, impact is a manual non computerized techno.
This is a very interesting case. Also because of its wide and various production, Autoblok uses technologies at opposite poles and also using machines so different: for example, MB32 as impact manual machine; Superior as the biggest laser in Automator offer.
This example, to say an important concept: each application has an optimal solution, which is not necessarily the most technologically advanced.
