Comparison to Conventional Fixtures

Conventional fixtures have machining restrictions.

cc

Areas in red cannot be machined.

Modular Pull Clamping System enables machining from five sides.

cc

 

Single Machining Step

Additional machining step is required because of tool interference.

cc

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.

 

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

cc

Cost for 2 steps (including fixture plate).

cc

Cost for single step (including fixture plate).

 

No Tool Interference

cc

Complicated toolpaths are required to avoid interference.

cc

Simple toolpaths without interference.

 

Application Example

Before

Multi-face machining with vises

Purpose: Single Setup

cc

Pull clamping with screws (using riser blocks)

Purpose: Easy Clamping Operation

cc

Pull clamping with screws using a fixture plate

Purpose: Eliminate interference with fixture plate

cc

After

With Clamping Screws attached directly to the workpiece

cc

 

With Clamping Screws attached to the fixture plate

cc

 

Quick Fixture Change

Modular Pull Clamping System allows quick and precise fixture changes.

cc

 

Modular Fixture

Can be used as a universal fixture by standardizing the mounting pitch for Clamping Screws.

cc

 

Workpiece Raising

Prevent tool interference.

cc

Easy chip cleaning.

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 shown in the figure for locating workpieces. Note: Tighten the Round-Type first, then Diamond-Type, and then tighten the Clamping Screws last.

Locating Mechanism

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

cc

Types

 

5 Axis Modular Pull Clamp System

5 Axis Clamping
