Flexible Fixturing Improves Cylinder Component Production
Advanced Machine and Engineering (AME) provides modular tombstone fixtures to run 56 different block sizes for Rockford, Illinois-area cylinder component manufacturer.
Clamp Enables Greater Spindle Access
The Triage 5axesClamp from Advanced Machine & Engineering enables five-axis spindles to reach virtually all areas of a workpiece.
Dedicated Manual Fixtures for CNC Machinery
Advanced Machine & Engineering can design and build Amrok ready-to-use dedicated manual fixtures from the ground up for HMCs, VMCs and other CNC machinery.
Saw/Drill Cuts Railroad Rails
The Amsaw R-series saw from Advanced Machine & Engineering is designed to produce smooth, accurate cuts, resulting in improved efficiency and productivity.
Five-Axis Clamp Eases Access to Workpieces
The Triag 5axesClamp from Advanced Machine & Engineering is designed to ease the difficulty that five-axis machines have reaching all areas parts using conventional workholding technology.
Power Drawbar Features Increased Spring Force
The OTT-Jakob power drawbar from Advanced Machine and Engineering is held securely in the spindle taper with gripper fingers.
Five-Axis Clamp for Complex Parts
Available from Advanced Machine & Engineering, the Triag 5axesClamp is said to help five-axis machine spindles reach all areas of a complex part.
Billet Sawing Systems
The Amsaw production sawing machines are designed to use carbide blades to reduce the cutting time of ferrous and non-ferrous material.
Automatic Sawing System
AMSAW S300 is designed for cutting ferrous and non-ferrous materials.
AME Distributes Stotz Measuring Systems
Rockford, Illinois-based Advanced Machine & Engineering (AME) is now the exclusive North American distributor for Stotz measuring systems, which include air and electronic gaging devices.
Workholding Products for a Variety of User Needs
Advanced Machine & Engineering’s 12-page workholding solutions brochure features modular components, self-aligning fixture elements (S.A.F.E.), grids, force cartridges, tombstones, locating systems and high-density workholding systems.
Dovetail Vise-Clamping Component
AME says its dovetail vise clamping component is useful for a variety of applications and industries, especially aerospace aluminum milling applications. Precision bushing holes are designed for quick and easy location of the vise, the company says.
Dedicated Fixture Eases Large-Part Clamping
Large parts can be difficult to fixture for effecient machining. With a custom-designed Amrok fixture, workholding manufacturer Advanced Machine & Engineering was able to effectively clamp 5,000-pound sections of a slurry mining pump and significantly reduce cycle times.
Modular Workholding, Tombstones
The company features Amflex/S. A. F.
5-Axis Workholding System
Advanced Machine & Engineering announces the availability of the Triag 5axesClamp. According to the company, the spindle on a five-axis machine often has difficulty reaching all areas of a complex part using conventional workholding technology. The Triag workholding system minimizes interference, allowing machining spindles full access to workpieces, even in high-density applications.
Hydraulic Workholding Doubles Output
When customer-supplied fixtures just weren’t cutting it, this automotive shop turned to Advanced Machine & Engineering for dedicated, hydraulic tombstones to use on its high-volume production runs. The new fixtures have since reduced load/unload time, cycle time and scrap rates while providing error-free loading.
