3 Workholding Methods to Save You Time and Sanity

Another time-saving solution which ultimately leads to increased efficiency (and no small amount of sanity-retention) is the universal, quick-change vice and ‘Drop & Lock’ pallet from Jergens. This 125mm vice, coupled with 96mm Drop & Lock pallet work in unison to provide speedy access to parts, as well as lightning fast swap out.

Trends in Multi-Axis Workholding and Quick Change Fixturing


Long term industry trends to lean manufacturing, shorter lead times, smaller batch sizes and more set ups have led to the growing use of 5 axis and multi-axis machines and accessories to eliminate multiple operations. And, after putting significant effort into cycle time reduction through advanced application of cutting tools, users are also paying more attention to set-up time reduction and quick change fixturing to improve their operations.

The Costs and Benefits of Horizontal Machining

Workholding for Advance CNC Machining of Grove City, OH used to mean just vises on their vertical machines. Now on the HMCs, workholding often entails a column fixture mounted in the machine using the Ball Lock system from Jergens, a system that assures rapid clamping and precise setup location. This system pays for itself when customer demands suddenly change, because the Ball Lock tooling enables jobs to be rapidly swapped in and out of a machine.

Quick-Change Fixturing Locks in Time, Cost Savings

Even if no specific pre-machining bottlenecks can be identified, time spent performing multiple setups on multiple workstations can compound quickly and adversely affect the bottom line. This is especially true for job shops, which typically produce a variety parts in a range of quantities. Military support system manufacturer Seyer Industries is no job shop, but it nonetheless faces similar challenges, says Mark Seyer, manufacturing manager. "While we see some jobs with hundreds of parts or even thousands, we're not a highproduction operation," he explains. "We've got to be very flexible because we also see a lot of smaller quantities, typically in the 10- to 25-piece range."...

Workholding Equipment: Securing the Right Grip

With increasing usage of CNC machines and arrival of advanced tooling systems, there has been a significant change in the design of workholding tools, which are crucial to the support environment of these high-performance machines. Rachita Jha explores the latest trends in workholding that are speeding setups and promising accurate repeatability in tooling systems.

When a workpiece gets ready for job work, the sole function of the workholding device is to offer a secure and fast machining set up that is built to withstand high speed and strong forces during the machining operation...

Myths About 5-Axis Workholding –What You Need to Know

It was evident at the recent IMTS show in Chicago that 5 Axis machining is rapidly becoming the norm instead of an exception. l felt like a kid in the candy store as I walked the show. Most CNC machine tool builders offer several models of multiaxis machines and the capabilities of these machines are truly amazing. They combine seemingly contradictory traits smooth motion, rigidity, speed and precision. There is a machine to suit any budget and if a dedicated 5-axis machine is out of one's reach, there are many third party single and dual rotary devices available enabling you to instantly turn your 3-axis machine into....

Five-Axis Quick Change System Elevates the Work

Five-axis machining centers are expensive compared to threeaxis machines. For shops to get value out of these machines, it's particularly important to be efficient in the ways work is set up. One aspect of that efficiency is change-over time. Workholding product supplier Jergens Inc. specializes in this; the company is known for its "Ball-Lock" quick-change system. However, another workholding requirement for effective five-axis machining is that it allow the tool to reach features, faces and surfaces from many directions. Clamps that obscure or cover the part prevent five-axis machines from achieving all they can. Jergens says its new 5-Axis Workholding System aims to bring the same quick-change concepts...
