Full automation
of your CNC machine

The missing piece

of the puzzle for full automation

Automation without a large investment and without committing to highly complicated systems! 

With the CLAMPBOOSTER you can automate your production processes without great expense. The acquisition costs of an automatic vise are very high, since you need to consider different sizes as well as the provision of pneumatic or hydraulic supply for workpiece clamping. Typically means completely rebuilding the machine. The CLAMPBOOSTER solves this problem. As an extension of your existing system, the CLAMPBOOSTER allows you to continue using your manual vise, keeping your costs under control.

If you don't want to be tied to highly complex systems in the long term, but want to take advantage of a high degree of automation, then the CLAMPBOOSTER is the solution!

First-class design and German quality

Form and function go hand in hand with the CLAMPBOOSTER. The high quality standards for smooth functioning are reflected in the ultra-modern and attractive design. The CLAMPBOOSTER is a product of idee-werk and its inventor Norbert Eugler. It is manufactured in Bavaria according to the highest quality standards and exported internationally.

Your benefits

from using CLAMPBOOSTER

Highest Precision

Torque and opening stroke, freely selectable in advance

With the CLAMPBOOSTER, the opening stroke of the vise can be precisely adjusted by programming the spindle revolutions. The required torque can be entered flexibly via the central control unit.

Intuitive Operation

Simple control via a display 

The software-based operating process allows the CLAMPBOOSTER to be controlled via a touchscreen.

Easy Integration

No complicated or expensive investment

As an add-on component, the CLAMPBOOSTER can be used to easily upgrade existing robots. No costly machine conversions necessary.

Universal Compatibility

Compatible with nearly all vise systems available on the market

Thanks to the exchangeable adapter, the CLAMPBOOSTER is compatible with most vise systems.

Expansion of workflow

Simply expanding existing machinery

The existing, proven workflow remains unchanged and can continue as usual.

High
efficiency

Increasing production

Since the manual component is eliminated, processing can be carried out around the clock, increasing production.

FAQs about CLAMPBOOSTER

How is CLAMPBOOSTER operated?

Both parameters – torque and opening stroke – are entered in the user interface.  

Which interfaces does CLAMPBOOSTER use to communicate with the robot?

Communication is analog / digital or via Profinet.

How long does it take to install the CLAMPBOOSTER?

The CLAMPBOOSTER must be installed once on the vise.
To do this, the appropriate docking plate for the vise is screwed on (two screws on the front of the CLAMPBOOSTER), the appropriate spin socket is attached and secured with a pin. This takes no more than 2-3 minutes.

How is CLAMPBOOSTER powered?

It uses an electric drive.

Is the torque variable?

Yes, it can be set between 5 Nm and 100 Nm.

How is the torque absorbed?

The torque is transmitted directly to the vise via the docking plate and two dowel pins. There is no transmission of force to the robot arm.

Which requirements must the vise meet?

The vise only needs to have two dowel pins placed on it.

How is remote maintenance conducted?

The CLAMPBOOSTER must be connected to the network (LAN or WLAN). However, access to our after-sales service is only possible after consent from the customer.

What does our after-sales service include?

Our after-sales service includes support for implementing the CLAMPBOOSTER and for carrying out software updates.
