ID Xpansion Clamp For VMC / HMC Applications(2)

Related Topics:

The ID Xpansion Clamp for VMC and HMC applications is a mild steel, machinable clamp that is said to be an ideal way to hold lathe parts from an internal diameter. Concentricity of 0.0005 can be held because the clamp is machined to match the individual workpiece. Produced in ten sizes they have a full range from 0.160 to 4.050. Typically, these clamps can be remachined and used for smaller parts. The flange diameter is held to a close tolerance for precision mounting of multiple parts on a workcube or fixture plate. Once machined, these low profile clamps can be tightened with a hex key or hydraulic pull cylinder. The screw, with the tapered head, goes through the clamp and mounts directly into the fixture plate or pull cylinder for additional rigidity.

Precision Workholding Delivers Accuracy and Production Capabilities

Holding the workpiece precisely is becoming an integral aspect of the machining process. It's more than presenting the blank to the cutter; it also includes repeatability from blank to blank.
