YS Modular System - multiple workholding options


Machining centre mountable static cylinder with multiple work holding options
Low-profile Kitagawa static cylinders, as low as 77.5mm high on the Z-Axis can be easily mounted to milling and drilling machines.
Three base sizes available, to operate up to 10" chuck sizes and can be arranged in a multiplate configuration for automation set-ups.
Delivering up to 20.8KN pull force with pneumatic actuation or 51.9kN pull force with low pressure hydraulic actuation (1.5MPa) within the series.
Multiple standard workholding options available, three jaw chuck for plate shaped workpieces, collet chuck for bar shapes and expanding mandrels for low-pressure internal gripping.
System can be adapted to almost any rotary power chuck system to enable the workholding to be used for milling operations.
Up to 20mm of piston stroke allows adaption to a variety of workholding systems.

Workholding system with fast set up times suitable for varied production requirements

The YS modular system utilises a static cylinder that can be mounted onto your machine bed. The static cylinder itself is extremely low-profile and until it is utilised it will have minimal impact on your machining envelope therefore allowing it to remain in place until it is required.

Once the static cylinder is required you have many workholding options available from a three jaw power chuck, collet chucks or even expanding mandrels.

Please click on the following three standard 6" options we offer (many other options available):

Three jaw power chuck option: YS-BR06-001A

Collet chuck option: YS-DHP52-001A

Expanding mandrel option: YS-KEM-001A

Depending on your machine size we can provide cylinders to actuate 6" (165mm), 8" (210mm), or 10" (254mm) chuck sizes.

The system can utilise Kitagawa equipment or any third party power workholding systems requiring a pull or push actuation and the cylinder can be operated pneumatically of hydraulically depending on the workholding.
