Single Machining Step

Additional machining step is required because of tool interference.

Additional machining step

Fixture for the additional machining step

No tool interference and no need for additional machining setup.

 

Better Machining Accuracy

Poor machining accuracy by machining in divided setup steps.

Better machining accuracy with single setup.

Positioning Order of Tapered Clamping Screws

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.
