Supermill

The ultimate permanent electro-magnetic chuck for heavy duty milling applications.

Supermill is constructed from solid steel and brass; it incorporates high intensity neodymium magnets to ensure an extremely robust, high performance clamping system. It is ideal for steel plate from 0.59" to 11.81" thick.

Supermill outperforms traditional clamping systems and other milling chucks, offering several process advantages.

• Instantaneous 100 tonnes m² of clamping force
• Failsafe magnetic technology - maintains hold even if power is cut
• Maximises feed rates - no time wasted fitting and positioning clamps
• Uniform clamping - eliminates vibration
• 5 side access to the workpiece
• Push button remote control
• Supplied with pole extensions

Supermill cuts cycle times by 70%
This actual example shows how Supermill can make an enormous difference to production efficiency.

Example: A batch of 50 plate steel components, each one measuring 6.8ft x 3.4ft x 0.6" thick with a machining path length of 20ft are machined on a 40 H.P. milling machine with a 18ft long bed. A carbide cutter is used to mill a 45 degree profile at a feed rate of 610mm/minute.

Using traditional mechanical clamps (12 required)

  • • Time taken to load each component, clamp, remove the workpiece and clean the bed (20 minutes)

  • • Obstructed cutting path, time taken to remove and re-position the workpiece to gain access to all faces (36 minutes)

  • • Time spent cutting the component (10.2 minutes)


Total cycle time per component (66.2 minutes)

Using Supermill

  • • Time taken to load each component, position, clamp and clean (10 minutes)

  • • No time taken to re-position as access is available for machining 5 sides (0 minutes)

  • • Time spent cutting the component (10.2 minutes)


Total cycle time (20.2 minutes)
