Custom Workholding

By designing custom workholding fixtures and tombstones for specific parts and processes, the company’s workholding is said to maximize machining center output through high density design and fast load/unload features.

The company says it will partner with the customer on a project from start to finish including research, design, development and building workholding systems and fixtures, often within a few weeks.      

It offers either steel fabricated tombstones for high rigidity or cast iron tombstones for vibration damping features. When more than one tombstone is required for horizontal machining centers with multiple pallets, the company says it will match the tombstones for maximum precision.

To insure workholding systems that are both maximally productive and operator friendly, engineers design workholding systems with ergonomics in mind. All custom systems are said to provide reliable clamping force similar to the company’s vises.
