Modular and universal clamping

MTS base plates are the flexible and precise interface for single or multiple palletization.

MTS base plates are available in various versions – with 1, 2, 4, 6 or 8 MTS chucks, depending on the model. We would also like to advise you on customized versions

Minimizing setting-up times

Workpieces and fixtures are palletized so that they can placed on the machine when required without any further setting up. On the machine, the MTS palletizing system holds them in position with precision and stability.

Further jobs are prepared outside the machine.


The MTS system is ideally suitable for automated pallet change.

When workpieces are changed, the contact surfaces of the chucks and chucking spigots are cleaned automatically. The MTS pallets are positioned neatly and with precision.

Low construction height

The low construction height of the EROWA MTS tooling system leaves a great deal of space for workpieces.

MTS chucks are fitted to the machine table or directly integrated in it.

Making use of existing equipment

Existing vises, gauges and fixtures are equipped with chucking spigots or palletized. This immediately makes them universally integrated in the MTS system.

Making optimal use of working space

The EROWA mineral cast tombstone provides a great deal of space for the simultaneous setting up of different workpieces. The entire working space of the machine is optimally exploited through the use of a tombstone.

The various EROWA MTS palletizing systems at a glance
