Production processes for parts and for the mounting of subassemblies can be rationalized by using the comprehensive supply program of TOX®-Mini, Handheld, Machine Mount and Robot Tongs.
Pair of TOX®-Tongs with pneumohydraulically operated drive cylinder as used in a mobile or stationary way, for example, in automobile industries all over the world.
The supply program of TOX®-Handheld Tongs offers a total of six different types and further executions and equipment variants. According to the individual requirements and operative ranges, the customer may select among mini handheld tongs, handheld tongs and flange tongs. There are various designs available which may be guided either as independent, mobile handheld tongs, stationary machine mount tongs or even in robot operation.
Based on the modular kit system, an individual configuration of the robot and machine mount tongs of type TZ is possible and it is also possible to leave sufficient space for the part to be operated. In a clinching operation the robot and machine mount tongs with autobalance are employed if the die is mounted to the drive side and the acting of an unwanted load upon the piecepart/surface of the piecepart must be prevented. Whereas the various TOX®-Handheld Tongs are based on their relevant series, the mobile TOX®-Robot Tongs and the stationary TOX®-Machine Mount Tongs originate from the above mentioned modular kit system.
This system consists of -bow, tools, drive cylinder and the measurement and control technics. Here it makes not difference whether the tools are clinching punch and clinching die or punching tools. Due to the excellent guiding qualitites, the tongs can be easily adapted to the respective application. Also the shape of the C-bow will be tailored to customer’s piecepart geometry. With regard to the drive cylinders, you may – depending on the requirements – use pneumohydraulic TOX®-Powerpackage cylinders, or alternatively, hydraulic cylinders, or decide in favour of servo spindles TOX®-ElectricDrive. In combination with the adapted TOX®-Controls and the intelligent monitoring TOX®-Monitoring systems, the customer will receive complete units, all tested and provided for direct installation, from one single source.
Flexibility and variety of application
All TOX®-Tongs can be used for most different treatments and applications within the ample range of professional and industrial production of pieceparts and subassemblies. We just mention a few application fields like clinching, pressing, punching, riveting, peening, piercing, embossing, marking, stretching and clamping, but also forming, bending and compressing. According to their application, it is possible to guide the tongs by hand, to fix them stationary, to place or position them in robot or handling systems and to include them in working tables or operation lines. Whether used for the production of gasproof air ducts as mobile handheld tongs, or in automobile production on robots as “7th axis”.
