Available from Advanced Machine & Engineering, the Triag 5axesClamp is said to help five-axis machine spindles reach all areas of a complex part.
Workholding Products for a Variety of User Needs
Advanced Machine & Engineering’s 12-page workholding solutions brochure features modular components, self-aligning fixture elements (S.A.F.E.), grids, force cartridges, tombstones, locating systems and high-density workholding systems.
Dovetail Vise-Clamping Component
AME says its dovetail vise clamping component is useful for a variety of applications and industries, especially aerospace aluminum milling applications. Precision bushing holes are designed for quick and easy location of the vise, the company says.
Dedicated Fixture Eases Large-Part Clamping
Large parts can be difficult to fixture for effecient machining. With a custom-designed Amrok fixture, workholding manufacturer Advanced Machine & Engineering was able to effectively clamp 5,000-pound sections of a slurry mining pump and significantly reduce cycle times.
5-Axis Workholding System
Advanced Machine & Engineering announces the availability of the Triag 5axesClamp. According to the company, the spindle on a five-axis machine often has difficulty reaching all areas of a complex part using conventional workholding technology. The Triag workholding system minimizes interference, allowing machining spindles full access to workpieces, even in high-density applications.
Hydraulic Workholding Doubles Output
When customer-supplied fixtures just weren’t cutting it, this automotive shop turned to Advanced Machine & Engineering for dedicated, hydraulic tombstones to use on its high-volume production runs. The new fixtures have since reduced load/unload time, cycle time and scrap rates while providing error-free loading.
