ACE clamping and safety elements maintain a rock-solid hold on the axes in special lathes and secure the predetermined positions both horizontally and vertically

Special LOCKED SL elements for emergency stops

In order to secure the processing position of a special lathe in both the horizontal and the vertical axis, ACE LOCKED elements of the type SL35-1-6B are installed. They have the further advantage of preventing slippage through the vertical axis in the case of a malfunction. The products used in the SL-series not only have the correct track width and offer very high process clamping forces of up to 10,000 N, but can also apply the same force as an emergency-stop braking function. This is due to the specially integrated brake linings made of low-wear sintered metal.

ACE clamping elements assist in the production of drilling tools: the LOCKED-P system clamps and at the same time absorbs the opposing forces of the joining process without difficulty

Clamping elements as a variable stop

ACE clamping elements are inserted, as a variable stop, during a joining process for the production of drilling tools. They meet the requirements for a precise positioning of the workpiece head and an adaptation of the length tolerance of up to 3 mm, ideally. ACE was awarded the contract because the clamping element is attached on a bar and its PN LOCKED series is specifically designed for this purpose. For clamping on linear guides, rails, axles and shafts, ACE offers a great range of high-performance models.

High level of stability and more driving comfort for tele-wheel loaders

Ideal for use in agricultural machinery

TUBUS profile dampers give tele-wheel loaders strong stability. With their function of limiting swinging movement, they secure machines when cornering and loading and provide a high degree of comfort and safety as well as securing the loaders. A further advantage is that the shovel can be loaded up to its full capacity for better performance when levelling and pushing. Small cost, large force absorption: The TUBUS profile damper TC design series employed here convinces with its energy absorption in the range of 450 Nm up to 12,725 Nm, whereby the machine elements with diameters of between 64 mm and 176 mm are very easily integrated into construction designs.

Secure material accumulator

Secure rail clamping

ACE clamping elements secure machines in the tyre industry. The goods accumulator/compensator of a material dispenser carries meandering, coiled, highly tear resistant material strips, which are fed at high speed to a tyre-manufacturing machine. To prevent damaging the machine, innovative type SLK25-1-6B clamping elements are employed.

Heavy safety shock absorbers, which are specially designed for this application, are able to brake in lock masses of up to four million kg

Customized buffer beam dampers

Driving into lock gates should be specifically facilitated when navigating through Dutch river locks. That is why ACE developed special dampers, based on existing safety shock absorbers but with optimized characteristics, a fixed stop and a stroke of 800 mm. These are able to absorb 500,000 Nm, which means they can cope with fully loaded ships and also the mechanical impacts resulting from water movement. To return to the initial position, the safety shock absorbers operate on the same nitrogen-based principle as the gas springs produced by the damping specialists in Langenfeld.

Downhill security

ACE safety shock absorbers defy the forces of nature. In order to efficiently protect against falling rocks, a net is put through its paces under realistic conditions. Large sized SDH80-500EU-F type safety shock absorbers with additional crash sleeves safeguard the high durability of the test construction. These models provide the necessary reserves for energy absorption, especially with regard to the supporting forces which must be considered during the very high collision speed imposed on a stone transportation car.

High-level protection of linear modules

Safety shock absorbers produced by ACE are installed in the top linear system models of one of the most prestigious companies in the field of drive and control technology. Their job: to protect the z-axis from damage caused by uncontrolled movements. Various safety dampers are used for different load ranges. Tests have shown that, in the worst case, a collision speed of up to 5 m/s might occur. To be on the safe side, the interpretations were based in all cases on a slightly higher value.

ACE safety shock absorbers protect end positions in two axes of a driving simulator

Safe driving to the end positions

The aim was to protect a driving simulation capsule on two of its eight axes. The demands placed on a potential emergency stopper were high because it was clear that its failure would lead to massive damage to the complete construction as well as to the capsule. Even the possibility of damage to the health of the test personnel could not be ruled out and was taken into consideration in a diverse range of mass-speed combinations. Two ACE safety shock absorbers now safely contain destructive forces, e.g. during power outages, and eliminate high risks.

Controlled emergency stop

ACE safety shock absorbers protect precision assembly jigs for the aircraft industry. The basic mount of this coordinate measuring machine for the production of parts in the aircraft industry is made of granite and must not be damaged. To avoid damage from operating errors or mishandling, all movement axes were equipped with safety shock absorbers of the type SCS45-50EU. If the turntables malfunction the safety shock absorbers decelerate the loads before expensive damage can occur to the granite measuring tables.

Secured Presses

Secure rod clamping

Pneumatic rod clamping allows hydraulic presses to be used for any application. With the help of hydraulic presses, cut ceramic parts are manufactured during the week. So that the rods of the upper and lower stamping plate do not sag when the press is at a standstill over the weekend or during holidays and therefore have to be setup again on the next working day, PN80-25-2-6B type rod clamps are used.
