Workpiece clamping


Clamping technology at EMUGE-FRANKEN, a success story

What many people do not know: Workpiece clamping at „EMUGE-FRANKEN“ has a long tradition. We have manufactured clamping devices since 1950. At that time, thread cutting technology already provided the successful tools. Richard Glimpel was determined to expand the product range to include clamping solutions for workpieces - and the full-range supplier „EMUGE-FRANKEN“ was born!

Highly precise and reliable, thousands of clamping devices have rendered their service in our name over the past decades. We have acquired a wide range of know-how and established ourselves as an innovative, competent and high-performance partner for the needs of our customers over generations.
Today, our clamping devices can be found all over the world.

You do not know us? We should change that!

If you have any questions about our clamping systems, we will be happy to advise you!

Made in Germany - Quality from Franconia

We develop all clamping devices exclusively in Lauf a. d. Pegnitz/Germany. The majority of the components for our clamping devices are manufactured in Germany especially for the high demands on precision and durability. This is the only way to achieve our unique quality level.

And that quality level is high - see for yourself!

We are Franconians with conviction and know where we come from. We are inventors, open to innovation and love crazy ideas. We are curious and we continue to learn. We want to make our customers better - progressively and purposefully! To do so, our 270 employees face the ever more complex challenges in terms of economic efficiency, compactness and service life of clamping fixtures. With a lot of success!

In-house expertise: The "COATING-COMPETENCE-CENTER"


Defined degrees of hardness are relevant for the function of a clamping device. Hardening also reduces wear and tear. Reliable rigidity is essential for high accuracies in the machining process. 
Selected components of clamping devices are hardened for long-lasting use under difficult conditions in our in-house hardening shop.

Coatings protect against corrosion and reduce maintenance costs and time. Worn or damaged coatings can often be removed and reapplied. The repair of coatings can help to avoid having to replace or buy an entire component.

Extremely hard tungsten carbide coatings, titanium nitride coatings (TiN) and titanium carbon nitride coatings (TiCN) are examples that we produce out in-house.

Strong together: our employees, our machines

The clamping technology department is part of the „EMUGE-FRANKEN“ company. Nevertheless, we have our own production with all necessary upstream and downstream departments. Our sales and design staff are specialised in clamping technology and are the competent contact persons for your requirements.

Our colleagues from production control, work preparation and assembly manufacture your clamping device. Our machines are the ideally matched partners of our employees. Our plant is equipped with CNC, NC and conventional machines. The wide range of milling, turning and complete machining operations offers almost unlimited possibilities. Multi-axis high-performance turning and milling centres allow creative scope.
Qualified employees, strong machines, smart ideas - the triangle for your success!

Our products, our solutions


Clamping technology, a world of its own

Clamping workpieces is not just a matter of precisely clamping components for machining. The high demands on the precision of clamping devices are joined by other challenges: Optimisation of costs and processes, reduction of production times, diverse flexibility in use.

In addition, highly complex workpiece shapes determine the design of a clamping device.

Ask our contact persons and let us take you on a tour of the exciting world of clamping technology!

Mandrels, chucks and much more

We develop mechanical, pneumatic or hydraulic clamping devices. These include:
  • Mandrels, such as flanged mandrels, balancing mandrels, eccentric mandrels
  • chucks, such as diaphragm chucks, combination chucks, turn chucks
  • many other technically sophisticated and high-precision designs of clamping devices

Benefit from the infinite number of solutions that our experts have produced so far!

Our partner company Mytec Präzisionswerkzeuge GmbH is the specialist for hydraulic expansion clamping technology and the first contact for high-precision, hydraulic clamping devices.

We plan and manufacture the tailor-made suit for your workpiece!


You are now asking yourself the question: Why should your next clamping device come from
Quite simple: Clamping technology from „EMUGE-FRANKEN“ offers the tailor-made solution for your system specifications. We discuss your requirements with you, consider the valid framework conditions and analyse the typical production parameters with your input.

No matter how complex it gets, we won't leave you on your own: We accompany you at every step of the project and also aim for a short lead time from receipt of order to manufacturing start-up.

Our goals:
Your added value, your satisfaction, your trust.

We are your partner


Your contact on site or in the factory

The group of companies of „EMUGE-FRANKEN“ provide you with experts especially for clamping devices. Please contact our employees if you have any questions, ideas or other needs regarding workpiece clamping!
The regional contact person will also be happy to put you in touch with the factory in Lauf a. d. Pegnitz/Germany. Technically experienced staff will respond to your enquiries. Of course, our staff can also visit you to discuss your ideas and concepts.

We speak "typically Franconian". But we will gladly make an exception for you, dialect-free and certainly in your national language!

We speak the same language: Clamping technology!

Many terms have become established for one and the same thing in clamping technology over the past decades. The result is a colourful mixture of technical terms that is wide-ranging in scope and creativity. But don't worry, we are prepared!

We know the technical terms of clamping technology and their subtle differences in meaning.  A "chuck" is often actually a "mandrel" and "collets" often mean "clamping sleeves" or simply "clamping elements". We keep the overview!
