Felix Röwekämper in cooperation with Arnz FLOTT GmbH Werkzeugmaschinen

The mechatronics engineer Felix Röwekämper from Ibbenbüren has pursued the goal of making the drilling of workpieces on pillar drilling machines significantly safer with the development of a drilling machine vice with integrated clamping mechanism. In contrast to previous methods of fixing a vice including the workpiece, the mechanism he developed together with Arnz Flott GmbH Werkzeugmaschinen is very simple and flexible. By means of a clamping lever, the vice can be easily and quickly pulled firmly to the table and thus easily adjusted.
