Ball Bearing Inserts and Rails
If you need fast and reliable tool changing,you will find that equipping or updating your press with ball bearing inserts and rails is the ideal solution.
With ball bearing inserts and rails you can move or change tools fast, and above all accurately - even if they weigh several tons. In the past this has often been an ,awkward, inconvenient and sometimes even critical process.
Equipping and retrofitting press tables with ball bearing rails is extremely straightforward as virtually every press table has fixing slots. The ball bearing rails are simply inserted and fixed in these slots.
Ball bearing inserts can be used for press tables which do not have fixing slots. These are fitted in the locating sockets.
The ball bearings of the inserts and rails will move in any direction and project only slightly above the surface of the press table. The result is that only slight force is required for movement on the table. ,When the tool is clamped in place it sits on the table and the clamping pressure causes the ball bearings to retract into their sockets.
