Multiple-part vise fixturing system

Related Topics:

The Solidmax vise jaw and workholding system from SM Workholding turns standard single- or double-station machine tool vises into self-adjusting, multiple-part fixturing systems for reduced setup time and increased production. The system uses no hydraulics or spring-actuated devices, but rather activates its non-rotating plungers via a proprietary mechanical actuating means as the vise’s moving jaw is tightened. As many as 12 parts can be secured with the same clamping force despite size variances to 0.060”.

 

The system can be used with any standard machine tool vise and clamps parts that are round or square, in addition to more complex geometries such as small castings or forgings.

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.
