Advanced workholding products alongside integrated mould and die handling at MACH 2024


For the first time at a major UK exhibition, Roemheld will demonstrate its recently introduced, mechanically operated, centric (self-centring) machine vice. Manufactured in the group’s Austrian factory in Rankweil, the new Hilma.UC 125 vice is of modular build and is intended for 3- to 5-axis prismatic machining applications.

The design ensures easy tool access to the workpiece from all sides, allowing the use of short tools for high precision machining in a single set-up. Versatility in operation is ensured by having a separate vice base and two individual jaws that, when a single handle is turned, travel simultaneously inwards towards the centre to clamp the workpiece and out again to release it.

Roemheld will also show an integrated concept for handling and changing moulds and dies as well as punching and forming tools. It allows them to be quickly and safely stored, transported to the press and positioned, centred and clamped on the machine.

Components for the entire process chain can be combined individually, depending on the application. The portfolio encompasses numerous rack systems, transport carts and bars, carrying and changing consoles, and clamping elements including magnetic plates. The components enable efficient die or mould handling for almost all requirements.

Different types of rack can be assembled to the desired size and specification. Dies or moulds are transported from the warehouse to the rack and on to the press on changing carts, either manually operated or battery powered. A tool can be easily inserted into the machine via manually or electrically driven consoles.
