Magnetic clamping system QMC 122

Stäubli's QMC 122 solutions offer many advantages in terms of safety, reliability and profitability. Active safety, interactivity with the operator and exact measurement of the clamping force are innovative functions made possible by the IMAG technology developed by Stäubli. Thanks to the design and the many inspections carried out during clamping operations and production, Stäubli solutions significantly help increase productivity.

Applications: mold clamping on injection presses from 50 to 4000 t and over.

Technical characteristics

  • Plate thickness (mm): 52 
  • Maximum operating temperature (°C): 100 
  • Power supply voltage (V): 200 to 480 (others on request) 
  • Frequency (Hz): 50 or 60

Construction

  • Plate: Low carbon steel
  • Magnetic module: AlNiCo and NdFeB magnets and copper winding

Safety functions

By integrating the many features enabling anticipation of malfunctions, the QMC solution creates a reduction in machine downtime.

  • The interactive control panel enables the validation of the safety points during mold changing operations.
  • Thanks to IMAG technology, the system accurately controls clamping force in real time. The operator is alerted if it is damaged or insufficient with regard to the force exerted on the mold.
  • The IMAG-Editor software enables the clamping force for each mold to be calculated beforehand, depending on the press on which it will be used. With this information any problems can be anticipated ahead of production.

Other characteristics

  • Each magnetic plate is designed with regard to the press to fit as well as taking into account the mold configuration.
  • The IMAG safety interface integrates and displays the signals coming from the machine in compliance with EUROMAP 70 and SPI AN-145.
  • On-site maintenance possible.
