MMS NOVEMBER 2018 114 JEDD COLE | EDITOR | Tooling and Workholding Wedge Clamps Enable Ganging of Workpieces Fixtureworks has added Vise Force wedge clamps from Paws Workholding to its lineup of manual clamps and workholding products. These wedge clamps are designed to provide a fast and flexible workholding solution ideal for clamping multiple workpieces. The clamps are fastened with one bolt for quick setup and part change. These universal fixturing clamps can be used to hold a vari- ety of materials including steel, brass, aluminum, plastic and more. The Vise Force wedge clamps are designed to fit between two workpieces so that parts can be ganged together for machining. They push the workpiece against a stop to prevent movement on the fastening base. According to the company, they provide high clamping pressure and take up little space on the fastening base. The internal return spring is designed to prevent chip buildup and enable closer placement of multiple clamps. The low-profile dovetail design is said to reduce movement, vibration and chatter. The Vise Force wedge clamps are available in 1.0", 1.5" and 2" jaw widths and with smooth, serrated and machinable clamping surfaces. The clamps are tight- ened with one 5/16-18 socket-head cap screw. Machin- able jaws are soft and oversized for custom machining the jaws to users' application. | Fixtureworks | 586-294-1188 | External Threading Toolholder Directs Coolant to the Cutting Edge Designed for more effective coolant flow and improved chip control, Carmex's new X-treme Jet external thread-turning toolholder provides two con- necting options via an elbow fitting and top clamp to more precisely direct the coolant flow to the cutting edge, where it is most effective. Available in both right- and left-handed config- urations, the X-treme Jet is coated for maximum abrasive resistance. Ideal for high-pressure coolant applications, the directed flow reduces cutting-edge temperature, resulting in improved performance, chip flow and tool life. According to the company, the X-treme Jet is designed to optimize cutting performance. | Carmex Precision Tools LLC 262-628-5030
