The advantages of voestalpine Camtec cam unit technology:

Wide range of products - Special cams

In addition to our standard product portfolio, we are pleased to offer customized cam units. We use standard components to create individual solutions, and you benefit from reliable and highly efficient cam units.

Compactness with few individual parts

voestalpine Camtec cam units are intelligently designed and consist of only a few parts in order to simplify spare parts management and the exchange of components.

High force with high precision, even in small structures

The clamping guide with a double prism drive make this possible. The sliding piece and slide base can be connected in very small spaces. The guide clamps can be easily adjusted while in the press.

Balanced angle magnification for optimized distribution of force 

The cam unit transfers large forces during surface pressing and yet is as compact as possible. Impulse forces are converted into cam force and not into speed, which ensures that the cam unit never operates faster than the press. 

High retraction forces save costs

The carriage is equipped with sufficiently powerful gas pressure springs to retract it back to the initial position. Enough force remains for stripping, thus making a stripping unit obsolete and enabling the operator to select a narrower unit width. The upper cam units (KS-OT) have been designed with widths of up to 180 mm in order to allow for installation of more powerful gas springs.
