What is HAUBEX?

HAUBEX is a flexible and cost-effective automation solution for small batches from batch size 2 that transforms the tool magazine into an automation system. The heart of HAUBEX is a workholding hood, which serves as a carrier system for the clamping device and the workpiece blank and is stored in the tool magazine.

What is HAUBEX used for?

HAUBEX makes it easy to increase efficiency in your manufacturing by productively filling breaks, creating additional time windows for alternative, value-adding activities or extending working hours by allowing the machine tool to continue unmanned production after the end of work.

How to use HAUBEX

In just a few steps you can turn
your tool magazine into an automation system

Workpiece clamping

Workpiece blanks with dimensions of approx. 80 x 75 x 70 mm can be clamped in the HAUBEX Makro•Grip® 5-Axis Vise by form-fit. With a maximum tightening torque of 70 Nm, the 5-Axis Vise achieves holding forces of up to 14,000 N. Thanks to the defined form-fit between the pre-stamped workpiece and the jaw serration, the Makro•Grip® technology guarantees absolute process reliability and repeatability.

Equipping the workholding hood

The workholding hood can be equipped in several ways. If the workholding hood is placed in a tool setting device, the 5-Axis Vise with the workpiece blank can be inserted overhead. Alternatively, the workholding hood can be slipped over the 5-Axis Vise at a set-up station, in each case by a 45° snap-in function.

Measuring and program sequence

Measuring the z-height on the tool setting device and entering it in the program. Exemplary NC programs for setting up the automatic vise exchange can be downloaded from our website.

Vise storage

The workholding hood equipped with the clamping device and workpiece blank is placed in the tool magazine like a common tool by the operator. Alternatively, the vise and workpiece blank can be placed into the zero-point clamping system and picked up by the workholding hood already inserted in the tool magazine.

Clamping mechanism

The workholding hood places the 5-Axis Vise into the zero-point clamping system and locks it by a 90° closing movement. Alternatively, the zero-point device can be actuated with a clamping lever during manual operation without HAUBEX.

Cleaning

After the machining process and prior to the automatic removal through the workholding hood, we recommend cleaning the machine interior and all relevant interfaces with the Clean-Tec chip fan.
