the AMF MAgnetiC ClAMping teChnology

CoMpAred to existing systeMs.

Electromagnetic clamping systems were frequently
connected with insecurity, unreliability, overheating or
also a high need for maintenance. These disturbing
characteristics are now a thing of the past. The innovative
electro-permanent technology of the AMF magnetic
clamping technology with its high-performance
characteristics is permanently impressive. Behind it lie
many years of experience, comprehensive know-how and
the mission of offering customer-oriented
solutions.

The result is convincing: High-quality square poles,
arranged according to the chessboard principle, form
the magnetic double cycle. An electromagnetic field
is generated through the direct surrounding by pole-
reversible permanent magnets on the sides and the
magnets below the poles.

The square pole plates can be used in a targeted way
– externally to magnetise workpieces or internally to
separate the magnetic flow from the workpieces again.
Activation or deactivation takes place in a fraction of
a second. Moreover, a neutral crown allows complete
magnetic insulation.

perFeCtion without restriCtion.

With previous clamping systems, compromises frequently
had to be accepted that, unfortunately, also had affects
on the production process and productivity. The electro-
permanent AMF magnetic clamping technology opens up
completely new opportunities and completely eliminates
multiple repositioning to carry out the work process as well
as deformations or impairments due to clamps.

Freely workAble surFACes And
uniForM ClAMping.

The force of the magnetic field makes the decisive
difference. For the magnetic surface on which the force
is evenly distributed is used as a clamping area for the
workpiece. And so all surfaces are completely accessible
to be worked on without additional clamps and a simple
5-sided processing is possible without difficulty. A single
procedure is sufficient for even clamping. The result is
higher surface quality, higher precision and increased
useful lives of the cutting materials.

Handling is convenient and fast; the range of uses for
machine tools is unlimited. Even installation of the system is
very simple, so that results show up very fast in application.
And they contribute accordingly to fast payback of the
investment. For optimisation of processes, improvement
of the quality of results and reduction of processing times

ANDREAS MAIER FELLBACH ∙ www.amf.de

What happens iF there is a poWer Failure?

The system is insensitive to possible power failures, and therefore „intrinsically safe“.

hoW can the Magnetic claMping plates Be Fastened?

a) laterally in the recesses with clamps (see catalogue „Mechanical clamping elements“)
b) in combination with an adapter plate for the AMF zero-point clamping system

can i claMp on one pole?

At least two poles have to be covered in order for there to be a magnetic flux.
For optimal clamping, however, 4 poles should be covered.

What happens iF i Mill into the Magnetic claMping plate?

The magnetic clamping plates can be reworked up to 4 mm by repeated re-grinding.
This also restores the plane parallelism.

What precision can i achieve With this systeM?

Plane parallelism of up to 0.02 mm can be achieved by:
1)  rough-milling the first surface
2) turning the plate over, rough-milling, stress-releasing and finishing the second plate
3) turning the plate over and finishing the first surface.

is Mechanical deForMation possiBle during claMping?

Quite the opposite. In the case of flame-cut parts, i.e. with very uneven workpiece surfaces, clamping is carried out with
3 fixed poles (3-point support) and with movable poles. The movable poles compensate for the unevenness, meaning that
the workpiece is not deformed during clamping.

do Magnetic Fields present any haZards?

Magnetic field height 0 to 100 mm: In this area, cardiac pacemakers, wristwatches and bank cards may be damaged.
At magnetic field height 100 mm and greater there is no longer any health risk.
Caution! Do not put any workpieces on while the magnet is actively clamped. – risk of injury!

up to hoW Many degrees celsius can Magnetic taBles Be used?

The magnetic tables can be used at operating temperatures up to 100°C. The neodymium magnet is guaranteed for a
maximum temperature of 100°C (this refers to the temperature in contact with the surface of the magnetic table over a longer
time period). As a result of large temperature fluctuations, in some cases „magnetic edges“ may occur, which disappear
again when the temperature is again within the guaranteed parameters.

A tAilored solution

Each pair of N/S poles generates an autonomous and defined force which is not influenced by the operating conditions
of the other adjacent poles. Therefore by counting the number of poles occupied by the clamped piece it is possible to
predetermine the force generated and consequently to establish the usable machine power with the relative machining
parameters.

Magnetic clamping plate for milling

Premium Line

No. 2950-50

Design:

Magnetic chuck with square pole technology in monoblock design and very strong holding forces. For

positioning, clamping and machining magnetisable materials.

In conjunction with pole extensions also particularly suitable for the 5-sided machining of workpieces.

Features:

Magnetic chuck with metallic surface. This special and high-quality design enables the strongest

holding forces to be reached in magnetic clamping technology with square pole technology.

The maximum stated holding force is specified for the complete allocation of all poles.

One particular advantage is the low design of 43 mm. This enables the dead weight to be very low

and reduces the machine table load considerably.

In the event of possible damage to the surface, this can be reworked up to 4 mm in order to restore

the original surface quality.

The magnetic chucks have a height tolerance of + / - 0.02 mm in the delivered condition, but an even

smaller height tolerance can be offered at any time on request.

The plug contact for the control unit is a water-resistant push-pull plug incl. protective cover.

The optimum holding forces are reached from a workpiece and material thickness greater than

12 mm.

A clamping slot is also available on both sides of the faces for fastening to the machine table.

Mounting holes can also be incorporated into the magnetic chuck. A drill plan at AMF is required for

this.

The M8 internal thread for fastening the pole extension is directly aligned centrally - without a

threaded bush - in each pole.

Advantage:

- Magnetic chuck with metallic surface

- Environmentally friendly clamping technology: Energy is only needed for clamping and releasing

- Highest level of safety: Holding force is retained even in the event of a power failure

- Maximum holding force: by using the latest magnetic materials

- Very low installation height

Application:

Control unit with hand-held controller for the simultaneous activation of 1 - 2 or 1 - 4 magnetic chucks.

The individual chucks can be selected and removed with the hand-held controller.

In addition to the selector switches for the magnetic chucks, the hand-held controller has three

function buttons:

1 x magnetisation (MAG)

1 x demagnetisation (DEMAG)

1 x release

To start the magnetisation or demagnetisation cycle, the following button combinations must be

pressed simultaneously:

- Magnetisation = MAG + Release

- Demagnetisation = DEMAG + Release

Features:

The connection cable and control lead have a length of 3 metres each.

The connection cable has a plug for 400V / 32A and is preassembled ready for connection. The high-

quality control leads have one steel mesh sheath and one push-pull plug each for connecting to the

magnetic chucks.

The hand-held controller with the function buttons MAG, DEMAG and Release belongs to the

standard delivery.

The control device has a prepared cable gland for the signal of the machine locking.

Advantage:

- Compact and ready-to-connect control 1 - 2 or 1 - 4 magnetic chucks

- Short cycle times of less than 1 second for magnetisation and demagnetisation

- Including hand-held controller as remote control for ease of handling

- No further installation of e.g. connecting plugs necessary

- Very strong and robust construction.

Application:

Fixed pole extensions are attached directly to the poles of the magnetic chuck with an M8 screw.

Pre-machined or flat workpieces can be mounted directly onto the fixed pole extensions and

clamped.

If the workpiece has uneven surfaces, it is normally mounted onto 3 fixed pole extensions and

clamped (three-point mounting). Movable pole extensions are used on all other poles that adapt

flexibly to the workpiece contour.

Features:

The pole extensions are designed for the optimum magnetic flux through the pole extension into the

workpiece.

The M8 fastening screw is supplied as standard.

Advantage:

- Easy and quick installation

- Optimum power flux of the magnetic field lines

Magnetic claMping systeMs

ANDREAS MAIER FELLBACH ∙ www.amf.de

Conditions for sales, deliveries and payments

These conditions of sale apply to business conducted with companies, legal

entities in the public sector, and legal entities with special budget in the public

sector. Our deliveries and services are carried out exclusively on the basis of the

conditions stated below. Deviating purchasing conditions of the buyer will not

become part of the contract, not even through acceptance of the order, unless we

have expressly accepted them.

1. Offer and entering into a contract
The basis of our delivery contracts is the latest edition of our catalogue. Orders

are not considered as accepted until they have been confirmed by us in writing.

When goods are supplied from stock and, for organisational reasons, you receive

no separate confirmation, the invoice has the additional function of confirming the

order. Details of dimensions and weights, and illustrations, drawings and data are

not binding and may be changed by us at any time. Deviations cannot be excluded.

2. Prices
Prices are quoted in EUR ex-works excluding turnover tax, packing, freight,

carriage, and insurance. Unless otherwise agreed, our list prices on the day of

delivery apply. In order to cover our costs, orders under EUR 50.– net value are

subject to a small order surcharge of EUR 10.–.

3. Delivery
Delivery delays are quoted to the best of our knowledge but without guarantee.

Agreed delivery delays begin on the day we accept the order and refer to the

completion of the goods in our works.

4. Transfer of risk
Risks  are  transferred  to  you  when  the  goods  are  passed  to  a  specific  person,

company, or organisation that is charged with the execution of carriage of the

goods. This applies also to partial deliveries and when we have accepted the costs

of carriage, delivery or erection. The risks are also transferred to you when you

have defaulted on acceptance.

5. Dispatch
Goods are supplied ex-works. Dispatch is at your cost and risk. Scheduled, FOB,

and  CIF  deliveries  are  also  at  your  risk.  In  the  absence  of  specific  instructions

concerning dispatch, we will arrange same as we think fit, but without accepting

any responsibility for choosing the cheapest or most suitable method of dispatch.

We make a handling charge of EUR 5.– if goods are sent at your request to a third

party. You accept that your order can be supplied in partial deliveries insofar as

this is reasonable.

6. Reservation of proprietary rights
Goods delivered remain our property until payment of all claims has been received

in full or until redemption of cheques given in payment. The cancellation of individual

positions in an open invoice and the drawing of a balance and its acceptance do

not affect proprietary rights. You have the right to dispose of the goods as a normal

commercial transaction, but you are forbidden to pawn, mortgage, or transfer

ownership of them in settlement of a debt or debts. You surrender to us herewith

your right to payment for goods for which we reserve our proprietary rights. You

have the right to collect these payments as long as you meet your obligations to

us. If we request it, you are obliged to name the third party and we have the right to

publish this information and the transfer of rights.

7. Cancellation rights due to late payment or insolvency
If you do not pay for the goods by the time payment is due, and if you have not

paid after expiry of a reasonable time limit set by us, we have the right to withdraw

from the contract and demand the return of goods already supplied. Rights under §

323 BGB (BGB = German civil law code) remain otherwise unaffected. Application

for the opening of insolvency proceedings gives us the right to withdraw from the

contract and demand the immediate return of goods supplied before the bankruptcy

court orders protective measures.

8. Packaging
Packages comply with the German packaging regulations (WO). Disposable

packaging is charged at cost. The packaging is not returnable.

9. Tooling costs
In the absence of any agreement to the contrary, tooling made for the execution

of an order remains our property in all cases. This applies even if we have made a

charge for a proportion of the tooling costs.

10. Payment
Our invoices are payable net within 30 days of the date of the invoice, or with

2% discount if paid within 10 days. Invoices below EUR 50.– are payable

immediately without discount. Our credit notes and your charges on us reduce

the amount subject to discount. Late payment entitles us to interest at the rate

the bank charges us for a current account overdraft but at least 8 percent above

the current base rate of the European Central Bank. If payment is overdue, we

are entitled, after giving you notice in writing, to cease fulfilling our obligations

under the contract until payment is received.

11. Offsetting exclusion
You can only offset payments with legally-established or unopposed counter

claims.

12. Guarantee
If you come to an agreement with us on properties of the goods, we include this

agreement in our technical specifications. If we have to supply to your drawings,

specifications, samples, etc., you accept the risk associated with suitability for

the intended purpose. The point in time at which risk is transferred is decisive for

the contractual condition of the goods. The deterioration of parts subject to wear

in the course of normal use does not constitute a defect. If the goods supplied

are defective, we will – at our choice and within a reasonable time limit set by

you – supply a replacement or repair the goods. If such repair or replacement

is not satisfactory, you have the right to reduce the price or withdraw from the

contract. Any further guarantee claims are excluded. Recognisable defects

must be notified at the latest within 10 days of receipt and defects that are not

recognisable must be notified as soon as they are discovered. The guarantee

period is 24 months and starts with dispatch of the goods from our works.

13. Hindered or impossible performance
If we are prevented from meeting our obligation by some unforeseeable event

(e.g. disruption of our plant, or delay in the delivery of important raw materials),

which, in spite of taking all reasonable care appropriate to the circumstances

of the case, we have been unable to avert, and it has become impossible to

execute the delivery or service punctually, the delivery delay will be extended

to an appropriate extent.

14. Liability
Except in the case of injury to life or limb, or damage to health caused by our

breach of duty, we are only liable in the event of intent or culpable negligence

on our part.

15. Customer specials
Orders for customer specials must be in writing and include binding details

of execution, quantities etc. For technical reasons we reserve the right to

supply 10% more or less than the quantity specified. If technical changes or

cancellation are required, the costs incurred will be charged to the customer.

16. Deliveries of samples and return of goods
Samples will be charged. When goods have been sent for testing or as samples,

we will credit you with the additional price against subsequent orders, as long

as the net contract value is at least EUR 125.–. The return of goods is only

possible with prior agreement. Customer specials may not be returned. For

goods returned for reasons outside our responsibility (e.g. wrongly ordered),

we charge 10% of the value of the goods but at least EUR 7.50, to cover

administration costs.

17. Place of fulfilment, court of jurisdiction
The place of fulfilment for all obligations arising from this contract is D-70707

Fellbach. The court of jurisdiction for any legal dispute arising from this contract

is D-71332 Waiblingen. (All disputes that arise from this contract or about its

validity will be decided by a court of arbitration according to the Arbitration Rules

of the German Committee for Arbitration Courts/Settlement and Arbitration

Procedure of the International Chamber of Commerce. Such decisions will be

final  and  normal  legal  procedures  are  excluded.)  German  law  applies  (BGB

and HGB = civil and commercial codes). The application of UN purchasing law

(CISG) is excluded.

18. Validity clause
If individual conditions should be found to be not legally valid, the remaining

conditions continue to apply. The invalid conditions will be replaced by

conditions  which  fulfil  as  closely  as  possible  the  commercial  intent  of  the

contract with reasonable consideration of the interests of both parties. With the

publication of these Conditions for Sales, Deliveries and Payment, all previous

versions become invalid. This does not apply to contracts agreed before

publication.
