Hydraulic Tools

High precision grip with runout accuracy of “1μm”
Superior accuracy allows for a wide range of applications spanning from forming processes to inspection.

Hydraulic tools are tools to hold workpieces (products, tools, etc.) by taking advantage of the metallic deformation (elastic deformation) in thin cylindrical portions as a result of static hydraulic pressure.
By making use of “Pascal’s principle”, small force is applied to generate a large force capable of inflating metal bodies as if they were balloons.
With hydraulic tools, a thin, metal cylinder is expanded by making use of the elastic deformation to transmit the power to hold the workpiece.
There are two types of hydraulic tools:
• “Hydraulic mandrel”, where the outside diameter expands to hold workpieces in the shape of a hole
• “Hydraulic chuck”, where the inside diameter contracts to hold workpieces in the shape of an axis

Features

High runout accuracy and repeat accuracy

Total contact on average is possible because the metal cylinder making contact with the workpiece is a surface, and also because the holding power is transmitted uniformly due to Pascal’s principle.

“Foolproof and easy-to-operate” high-precision clamp operable by using only one wrench

Turning the operating screw with a wrench is all you need to use the foolproof and easy-to-operate stable, high-precision clamp. Training time and training cost can be saved since burden on operators is reduced even in processes requiring high skills.

Usable in a wide range of applications spanning from machining to measurement and instrumentation

These tools can be used in forming processes such as turning, milling, machining, and combined machining to finishing processes such as cylindrical grinding, internal grinding, and honing, as assembly tools, as well as inspection tools.

Custom specifications and shapes for specific use

We accept orders to manufacture tools for specific workpieces and/or purposes.
