Options and special information

  • Hydraulically actuated power packs with inductive jaw monitoring for automated applications
    TANDEM KSH3-IM from SCHUNK stands for high-performance, pneumatically actuated clamping force blocks with inductive jaw monitoring. In addition to the features of the standard KSH3 vises, the KSH3-IM vises are also equipped with two inductive proximity switches which can be used to monitor the base jaw position. This makes the vises particularly suitable for automated processes in which the signal is to be transferred directly to the machine control system. Furthermore, the vises are equipped with a cover plate and sheathing for the sensor cable, which provides special protection for sensitive components.
