Simple clamping allows 5-axis machining without tool interference. Can be used as a mechanical zero point clamping system for quick fixture change with 0.005 mm accuracy.
Conventional fixtures have machining restrictions.
Areas in red cannot be machined.
Modular Pull Clamping System enables machining from five sides.
Additional machining step is required because of tool interference.
Fixture for the additional machining step
No tool interference and no need for additional machining setup.
Poor machining accuracy by machining in divided setup steps.
Better machining accuracy with single setup.
Cost for 2 steps (including fixture plate).
Cost for single step (including fixture plate).
Complicated toolpaths are required to avoid interference.
Simple toolpaths without interference.
Multi-face machining with vises
Purpose: Single Setup
Pull clamping with screws (using riser blocks)
Purpose: Easy Clamping Operation
Pull clamping with screws using a fixture plate
Purpose: Eliminate interference with fixture plate
With Clamping Screws attached directly to the workpiece
With Clamping Screws attached to the fixture plate
Modular Pull Clamping System allows quick and precise fixture changes.
Can be used as a universal fixture by standardizing the mounting pitch for Clamping Screws.
Prevent tool interference.
Easy chip cleaning.
Tapered Clamping Screws for precise locating.
Clamping Screws for clamping.
Mount the Round-Type and Diamond-Type as shown in the figure for locating workpieces. Note: Tighten the Round-Type first, then Diamond-Type, and then tighten the Clamping Screws last.
Dual surface contact at the tapered surfaces and contact surfaces enables 5µm locating repeatability.
Completely modular, this versatile clamping system allows easy height adjustment by coupling the modules. Ideal for 5-axis machining.
