The Universal Modules are widely applicable carrier modules designed to accommodate many different tools. The versatility of these modules makes it very cost-effective to adapt the cutting system to changing production requirements.
A bayonet lock allows for quick tool changes without a need for a screwdriver. A new or different tool can be set up with little effort and made ready for use. Modules can be operated in pressure or position mode. For different applications, the Universal Module is available in four different versions.
Exceedingly fast tool changes
Two operating modes: pressure/position
The Universal Module accommodates a wide range of tools. To satisfy different requirements, the UM is available in two versions
The Universal Module accommodates a very wide range of Zünd tools. These tools can be
used for different applications and may requi‑ re different module characteristics. For this
reason, the Universal Module is available in a «speed» or a «power» version.
The two modules differ primarily in terms of downward pressure and lifting/lowering
speeds: The Z‑axis speed of the UM-ZS is very high, which significantly reduces processing
times. This is especially true for applications that involve complex contours since the time
for lifting/lowering the tool in corners is redu‑ ced.
In contrast, the Z-axis of the robust UM-ZP mo‑dule is particularly powerful and can exert a
great deal of down-ward pressure, which ma‑kes it ideal for creasing applications or other
processing methods that require a lot of force.
Both modules have tool recognition capabili‑ties: a sensor registers whether or not a tool
is inserted in the module.
