Jergens Inc. has announced a partnership with MachiningCloud, a product data provider for cutting tools, CNC machines and workholding. Over 6,500 of the Jergens’ workholding products are now available on MachiningCloud, including FixturePro, Drop & Lock, Zero Point System (ZPS), Ball Lock and OK Vise. 

The partnership is expected to enable customers to use cloud-based technology to gather information for their manufacturing operations without having to search through catalogs. Customers also have instant access to up-to-date 3D CAD models for the company’s line of workholding products.

“Jergens is thrilled to partner with MachiningCloud to further syndicate our product data to the marketplace electronically. Jergens has tremendous product breadth and depth, and MachiningCloud can facilitate numerous options to the shop floor. This platform will allow us to support more customers toward their goal of manufacturing efficiency,” says Bob Rubenstahl, general manager at Jergens.

“While customers will save time by using MachiningCloud to choose workholding solutions for a given job, there is an even bigger benefit in the form of accurate 3D models for CAM and simulation,” says Christophe Rogazy, director of product management at MachiningCloud.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.

  • Holding Small Parts for Effective Machining on a CNC Router

    A non-woven porous material with a special coating enables vacuum chucks and tables to hold sheets of metal and other materials more effectively on CNC routing machines. The material, called Vilmill, is used as a substrate between the sheet or plate material to be machined and a suitable vacuum table or vacuum chuck where it is held securely in place by the vacuum.

    Modular fixturing makes sense for this manufacturer, whether it's machining one- or two-of-a-kind parts for its custom machine tools or larger quantities for its contract machining business.
