The Cube Ultimate machine utilization by maximizing the working area


The cube for maximizing space The entire working envelope of the machine utilizes the tombstones. Our MTS zero-point workholding system minimizes changeover times - increasing productivity!


The zero-point workholding system on the tombstone eliminates changeover times. The workpieces are prepared at the setup station and machined in horizontal position.

Moving the cube from the machine to the setup station? Simply lift it with the overhead crane.

Ultimate machine utilization by maximizing the working area.

Rust-resistant built-in pockets and internal pneumatic supply for safe operation in the challenging production environment.

CleverClamp; the truly sophisticated vise system for horizontal set up. Easy to use, versatile in application.


Simple Accurate Robust Ingenious



Cube technology Mineral cast as a base material has many advantages. Paired with the ingenious MTS zero-point workholding system, the cube becomes a key productivity factor.


What is mineral cast? Mineral cast consists of quartz gravel, quartz sand and rock flour that is mixed intensively with epoxy resin. Under constant vibration, the mixture is poured into a dimensionally accurate negative mold that already contains all casting parts. Vibrating of the casting mold is used for venting and compacting the mixture. After curing for several hours, the mineral cast cube can be demolded.

Mineral cast has several beneficial properties. The vibration damping of mineral cast is up to 10 times better than that of cast iron. The low heat conductivity coupled with a high heat capacity results in high temperature stability. With 2.4 kg/dm3, the specific density of mineral cast is less than that of aluminum.

EROWA MTS mineral cast cubes

Variations All fixtures, including the tombstones, need to be placed on the machine as quickly and precisely as possible. The base is the MTS zero-point system. With only two of the costly machine pallets, all job changes may be done in no time. The fixtures are stored in shelf magazines, ready to use.
