Available in manual, automatic and full-motion configurations, FCS North America’s Breyl modular workholding systems offer flexibility, repeatability and precision to a tolerance within 5 microns.

The manual system is designed to provide quick setup options for unrestricted access to five workpiece surfaces in one step. It is based on a 50-mm grid and starts with a base gage, clamping body, ring and rod. The ring provides the exact centering and the rod the connection. The automatic system is designed around the direct needs of an internal workspace and provides a full range of automatic clamping for fast handling of palletization. The fully automated Motion Line System is operated by a proprietary software platform or can be integrated with an existing software system.

  • 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.
