Big Kaiser’s Uniflex 3D zero-point clamping system provides vibration-free holding of the part when multiple clamping is used and has low-wear against tools.

Big Kaiser’s Uniflex system is a 3D zero-point clamping system designed to allow parts with curved surfaces to be held rigidly for various operations and be adjusted to different height requirements. The system is available in diameters of 25.4 mm and 50 mm.

The clamping system is composed of a clamping ball and collar that are attached to the underside of a part or fixture. The clamping ball is a hardened steel ball of the same type found in heavy-duty industrial bearings. This material prevents peening or denting of its surface with normal use.

This system provides vibration-free holding of the part when multiple clamping is used and has low-wear against tools. It is also said to stabilize the workpieces without obstructing access to the top and sides of the part. The two sizes available enable users to work with small or large workpieces such as weldments and castings.
