The Kostyrka Universal Holding Fixture (UHF) is a flexible chucking device that can be adapted to several hundred different individual workpiece supports. It is designed for aerospace workpieces, the manufacture of body components in the automotive industry and measuring and metrology applications.
Whenever a workpiece changeover takes place, the universal device is adjusted to the new component by the repositioning of its supporting and clamping elements. This is especially helpful for the manufacture of free-form components which often involves workpiece-configured jigs and fixtures that are arranged exclusively for a specific workpiece geometry. The UHF eliminates the need to replace the whole fixture whenever a new workpiece is positioned and clamped in place for processing. The fixture offers positioning accuracy of individual UHF elements 0.005 mm and repeating accuracy of 0.002 mm.
