The handling system is said to be a powerful and compact automa- tion tool that fits both the company's Performance-Line machining centers and High- Performance-Line models. A flat mineral casting bed holds three axes of the handling unit and offers ergonomically convenient access for the operator. The system also functions as a storage module, with one module installed as stan- dard and an optional second module available. The modules are structured as a rack, offering customization in the pallet/workpiece arrangement. Up to four rack shelves can be ordered with a total ranging to 20 pallet storage spaces per module, providing up to 40 pallet storage spaces when two modules are installed. Hermle Machine Co., South, Level 3, Booth 338136 Tightening Fixture Ensures Precision Big Kaiser's Torque Fit is a tightening fixture for collet chucks with an integrated torque measuring system. This device is designed to ensure that a collet chuck is correctly tightened. The tightening fixture notifies the user of a correctly set torque value via an audible buzzer. If overtightening occurs, the error LED light will flash. The tightening fixture was developed to replace multiple torque wrenches and has adapt- ers available for all common machine tool interfaces such as CAT, BT, SK, HSK and BIG CAPTO. For maximum convenience, torque values for all Big Kaiser- made collet chucks are preset. The operator can, however, use a generic setting to tighten any collet chuck with a torque value up to 80 Nm (60 foot-pounds). Big Kaiser, West Level 3 & Annex Booth 431610
