Innovazione
per tradizione

La storia dell’azienda OTT-JAKOB risale fino all’anno 1873, nel quale Albert Ott fondò un istituto matematico-meccanico a Kempten. Con la partecipazione alle esposizioni universali di Melbourne (1880) e Chicago (1893), Albert Ott ha dimostrato in anticipo sui tempi come la penetrazione nei mercati globali rappresenti un importante fattore chiave per una crescita durevole. Nel 1974 l’impresa riuscì a sviluppare il primo portautensili, la cui storia di successo continua a essere scritta coerentemente da allora.

Revolver interface pti with innovative clamping technology

The time has come for the market launch of the turret interface pti (polygonal turning interface) with the first size pti65. The REKUNORM project answers the last open questions in the development of pti. On May 8, about 50 experts met for an information event in Lengenwang at the headquarters of the clamping technology specialist OTT-JAKOB.

The REKUNORM project group, chaired by Dr. Dietrich Lembke, chairman of the DIN standards committee, presented the current state of development of the project. The main objectives of REKUNORM are the development of a uniform coupling for driven tools and the development of a standard proposal for shank, holder and coupling. While work on the coupling is still in progress, the two main parts of the future standard (shaft and holder) can already be submitted as a draft standard in October 2018 due to the advanced development work.

The project partners pursue independent development tasks in their respective fields and transfer the results into a joint standard proposal. The REKUNORM Group, consisting of OTT-JAKOB, the revolver manufacturer Sauter, the tool holder manufacturer WTO and the lathe manufacturer Weisser as well as the WZL of RWTH Aachen also presented the progress of the individual sub-projects in Lengenwang. The result is a tool interface with a planar system and an octagonal conical polygon shank (pti). After a first development project (REVOSIT) has already laid the foundations for the pti65 size, this has now been completed within the framework of a series and completed with pti54 and pti42 by two further sizes.

The objective of OTT-JAKOB is the development and production of a turret clamping system for quick change of tool holders with polygonal shank. With the introduced powerful pti clamping system, essential prerequisites have been created for the pti interface to find its way into industry.

25 years of OTT-JAKOB

The tool clamping system manufacturer OTT-JAKOB celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2018. On March 1,1993, the tool clamping technology division of OTT-Maschinentechnik was spun off and integrated into the JAKOB Group by the father of today’s managing director Frank Jakob as an independent company under the name of OTT-JAKOB Spanntechnik.

The roots of the family-owned company, which is located in the Allgäu region, go back to 1873, when Albert Ott founded an institute of mathematics and mechanics. The original core business was the production of mathematical and hydrometric instruments. The company entered the mechanical engineering sector in 1948 with the production of cross-winding machines for the textile industry.

In the early 1970s, the mechanical engineering sector was expanded to include machine tool technology and the company began producing tool changers and clamping systems. Today, OTT-JAKOB focuses exclusively on the development and manufacture of tool clamping systems and mechatronic monitoring solutions for machine tools and is one of the key players in this market worldwide.

OTT-JAKOB at EMO 2017

With their multi-sensor unclamping unit, OTT-JAKOB showcased the latest addition to their portfolio in sensor-based assistance systems at the EMO Hanover. The sensor system introduced as MSU is an innovative Plug & Play Monitoring solution that groups up to three control functions into one unit: monitoring of the position of the drawbar shaft, detection of the position of the release piston and optimum leakage detection. MSU can be integrated into virtually all OTT-JAKOB unclamp units and be adapted to special solutions.

In the field of manual clamping technology OTT-JAKOB informed about the new research project REKUNORM which was launched for the EMO. REKUNORM is the follow-up project to REVOSIT, from which the standardised pti turret interface (polygonal turning interface) arose. As a result of the existing diversity of couplings on the market, the main objective of REKUNORM is to develop a standardised coupling for driven tools in turret lathes.

The Power-Check 2 pull-in-force measurement device has been design-optimised thanks to a number of further developments. Among the most important measures is the changed locking function of the adjusting sleeve that now operates without bores on the plane surface; this, in turn, enabled additional implementation of sealing of the sleeve and the force sensor. Due to the changes made, OTT-JAKOB has laid the foundations for achieving the IP67 protection class, which is, among other things, equivalent to protection against penetration of water when temporarily immersed.

Development of innovative PLANKO technology

To ensure a high level of process reliability in machining, high-resolution sensors are necessary for monitoring the flange surface of the tool during rotation. These distance measurement sensors face a diverse and demanding range of requirements.

At EMO 2011, OTT-JAKOB presented its brand-new flange surface monitoring solution (working title ‘PLANKO’) based on ceramic resonators and waveguide structures which, in combination with radar electronic components, make it possible to precisely and reliably measure distances from 10 µm at turning speeds of up to 15,000 rpm.

This solution was further optimised in coordination with selected spindle and machine tool manufacturers. In the new sensor structure, the sensor path in the transition area is now replaced by a cable between the radial and axial holes. The critical machining dimensions of the deep, circular waveguides are consequently not necessary. The assembly process is also made easier, and the flexibility for various tool interfaces is ensured. The resonator is reduced to a minimum length and forms a compact electronics module with the cable and the connector, which fits perfectly into the prefabricated installation hole. The rotor signal is coupled by means of an antenna, while the other high-functioning electronics have been further miniaturised and can be integrated around the spindle nose.
