Advanced Machine and Engineering’s inverted stud ball workholding element enables full five-sided profile machining, which decreases overall machine time. It can be used for a variety of industries including aerospace, medical and automotive, the company says. The ball element and stud combination provides a one-component design that is said to remain stress-free by conforming to the part that is being machined.

The self-aligning fixture element (S.A.F.E.) includes a ball element with six-degrees of rotation in any direction; swiveling ball element contact pads that enable less internal stresses for bent or angled parts requiring clamping; Viton O-ring protection that prevents penetration of chips and coolant within the ball element system; and fixed press fit ball element heights for locating and positioning.
