Palmgren's Dual Force Precision CNC Vises Excel in Parallel
Palmgren says its Dual Force Precision CNC Vises excel in workholding situations where parts require multiple vises in parallel.
Palmgren says its Dual Force Machine Vises excel in high-precision part clamping situations, and are compatible with all types of CNC machines. The company also recommends the vises for applications requiring mounting multiple vises parallel to each other.
The company says users can mount the vises on their base or bottom, or vertically position the vises on their end. The vises come equipped with Palmgren’s Dual Force to maximize workholding strength and rigidity.
When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine, many turn to the steady rest.
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.
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.
