No, we even produce single pieces.
OTT-JAKOB offers integrated spindle drawbars for the SK, HSK, PSC and KM4XTM interfaces.
OTT-JAKOB clamping systems are suitable for a wide variety of applications (milling, turning, grinding, multitasking machining).
In principle, OTT-JAKOB clamping systems are designed and manufactured for long-term use. However, the actual service life of each clamping system can only be estimated, as this depends to a large extent on the external influences and type of use.
Yes, depending on the design of the clamping system, there are (for example) sensors for monitoring the clamping position, the position of the release piston, the contact surface as well as leakage and temperature for the rotary union. Further information about our assistance systems can be found in the product section.
All our clamping systems are custom-made, i.e. standard clamping systems are not available. However, since we have already designed thousands of systems, we can often fall back on already existing ones. Our technical sales team will be happy to advise you and help you configure a clamping system based on your specific requirements.

Yes, we offer a number of mounting aids: mounting sleeves for mounting the seal on the drawbar shaft, assembly tools for mounting HSK gripper segments, mounting pliers for the snap ring of the sealing bushings, as well as a dismounting tool for sealing bushings.
Yes, in addition to the pull force measurement devices Power-Check 2 and Power-Check Magazine, we also offer measuring devices for the spindle edge of your HSK/SK spindle.
