Superior Clamping and Gripping

SCHUNK GmbH & Co. KG of Lauffen/Neckar is a German family-owned company and global player in one. The company was founded in 1945 by Friedrich Schunk as a mechanical workshop and has developed under the leadership of Heinz-Dieter Schunk to a competence and world market leader for gripping systems and clamping technology. Today, the company is run by the third generation siblings Henrik A. Schunk and Kristina I. Schunk. About 3,000 employees in 9 plants and 33 directly owned subsidiaries and distribution partners in more than 50 countries throughout the world ensure an intensive market presence. With 11,000 standard components SCHUNK offers the world’s largest assortment of gripping systems and clamping technology from one source, and with 2,550 SCHUNK grippers the largest product range of standard grippers. The complete program of gripping systems comprises more than 4,000 components. The main customers are all manufacturing companies with assembly, handling and metal-cutting processes. The customer base includes the Who's Who of mechanical engineering, robotics, automation and assembly handling, and all the renowned automotive brands and their suppliers. Since 2012, goalkeeper legend Jens Lehmann has acted as brand ambassador for safe, precise gripping and holding in the SCHUNK team.

  • Aviation Stationary Clamping System
    The SCHUNK Aviation Stationary Clamping System is a modular system for clamping large structural workpieces. The operator can relax the clamping of the unit with pneumatics to provide stress relief and provide all degrees of freedom....

  • The SCHUNK Vero-S Aviation product line is designed to rigidly clamp large parts accurately, and through its unique design enable the user to release the part enough to allow the part to move (compensate) due to the stresses of machining without fully releasing the part.  Therefore the clamp - unclamp and reclamping of the stress relieved part can be done in under a minute without losing the established primary reference datums.  This is accomplished through the use of 4 uniquely designed modules.  

    • The first module is fixed in all axis to establish the primary reference point.
    • The second module allows the work piece to compensate in one axis (X axis).
    • The third module allow the work piece to compensate in two axis (X & Y)
    • The fourth module allows compensation in all axis including height and angularity.
  • VERO-S
    VERO-S is the modular quick-change pallet system for very fast and extremely precise resetting of workpieces, clamping devices, and other equipment on 3, 4, or 5-axis machining centers....

  • Sync your workholding with your machine for ultimate spindle uptime today! Set up changes are reduced by 90% with this fast, extremely accurate quick change, workholding, and positioning system. Infinite combinations are possible as any workholding can be mounted on top, from a standard vise to a custom fixture, for a reliable and consistent changeover.

    For a micron-precise connection between machine table and workpiece, the VERO-S clamping system makes optimal use of even the smallest machine table. Combine the VERO-S with the comprehensive SCHUNK stationary workholding range or your existing workholding to find the solution to your clamping needs. Components are quickly exchanged in the machine, positioned, fixed, and clamped all in one step with a repeat accuracy of less than 0.005 mm. VERO-S quick-change pallet system delivers fast and precise resetting of workpieces, clamping devices and other equipment on 3, 4, or 5-axis machining centers. 

  • ROTA NCR
    The ROTA NCR from SCHUNK is a 6-jaw power chuck with oscillation mechanism for low-deformation clamping of thin-walled components. Also available with additional centrifugal force compensation system....

  • The ROTA NCR is applicable on universal CNC lathes.
