Strengthening Grip

Workholding for milling operations commonly involves vises that clamp with movable jaws. This technology has continued to progress to match the requirements of five-axis workholding.


Harnessing the Holding Force

Inserts engineered to augment the vise’s effectiveness allow work to be held rigidly on a tiny clamping area.


The “Headless Bolt” Fixturing Alternative

This fastener enables fast workpiece change-overs compared to conventional bolts and less cutter interference thanks to its compact design.


Bolt-On Trunnion Tables

Trunnion tables can be a low-cost way to reduce part handling, speed throughput and improve accuracy at a fraction of the cost of new machines.


Flexible Fixturing Speeds CMM Inspection

Modular fixturing components enable users to realize fast change-overs on CMMs to open inspection bottlenecks and reduce machine tool downtime waiting for part measurement.


Retention Pins that Both Position and Clamp

Shops and fixture manufacturers commonly use spring-loaded retention pins in their workholding devices to ease part loading.


Firm Grip on the Future

This Indiana workholding manufacturer has been in business for 97 years. Its recent and ongoing investment in plant and capital equipment ensures its place as a leading supplier of standard and specialty workholding solutions for the turned parts in...


Compact Rotary Table Features Large Through-Hole

This rotary table was developed to deliver the requisite through-hole diameter in a more compact overall size.


Adapting to Aerospace Change

The changing demands of aerospace companies have prompted machine shops such as this one to evolve their processes and equipment to become more competitive.


A Tidy Turning Cell

This compact cell offers automated turning and inspection for extended periods of unattended operation.
