Comparison to Conventional Fixtures

Conventional fixtures have machining restrictions.

cc

Areas in red cannot be machined.

Modular Pull Clamping System enables machining from 5 sides.

cc

 

Single Machining Step

Additional machining step is required because of tool interference

cc

Fixture for the additionalmachining step

No tool interference and no need for additional machining step

 

Better Machining Accuracy

Poor machining accuracy by machinig in divided steps

Better machining accuracy by single setup

 

Shorter Fixture Preparation Time

Time to design fixture

  • 1st Step: 3hrs
  • 2nd Step: 2hrs
  • Total: 5hrs

Time to assemble fixture

  • 1st Step: 3hrs
  • 2nd Step: 3hrs
  • Total: 6hrs

Fixture components

  • 1st Step: 57 parts
  • 2nd Step: 57 parts

Time to design fixture

  • 10 minutes

Time to assemble fixture

  • 10 minutes

Fixture components

  • 17 parts

 

Lower Fixture Cost

How To Use

cc

Clamping Modules can be coupled with each types of Clamping Modules. For details, see the Assembly Chart in "How To Use Modular Pull Clamping System".

 

How To Use Clamping Screws

Tapered Clamping Screws For precise locating

cc

Clamping Screws for clamping

cc

 

Positioning Order of Tapered Clamping Screws

Mount the Round-Type and Diamond-Type as in the figure, for locating workpieces. Note: Tighten the Round-Type first, and then Diamond-Type, and Clamping Screws last of all.

Locating Mechanism

Dual surface contact at the tapered surfaces and contact surfaces enables 5┬Ám locating repeatability.
