The products of Roemheld Rivi, a manufacturer of magnetic clamping plates for securing dies and moulds, are now available in the UK through the Hitchin headquarters of Roemheld UK.
Solutions from Roemheld Rivi are deployed not only in the plastics sector, but in the rubber industry. It is the only magnetic die-clamping company to have the technology to operate in the rubber sector due to the ability
of its M-TECS series plates to withstand temperatures up to 240°C.
Dies and moulds made from ferromagnetic materials can be clamped and subsequently released over their full surface area, while high plate stiffness resists bending. The systems work without electrical power and require only a short current pulse lasting a few seconds to activate and deactivate the magnets.
Permanent magnets generate a field that penetrates a few millimetres into the tool and hold even heavy mould halves weighing several tons in the correct position, bringing them together absolutely parallel. Even moulds with complex geometries can be precisely clamped without deformation, while uniform distribution of the clamping force ensures low die wear.
Every magnetic clamping system is customised by Roemheld Rivi using standardised components and is virtually maintenance-free. Solutions can be configured flexibly with regard to size, geometry, clamping force and fittings, and are available on short delivery times. The systems can generally be retrofitted to existing machines within just a few hours.
Roemheld Rivi is currently forming a new network comprising 15 service locations throughout Europe and one each in the USA, China and Japan. Intensively trained Roemheld Rivi engineers will provide enhanced support for customers in their native languages, and each centre will have access to replacement parts to speed service and support.
