TOOLING AND WORKHOLDING Modern Machine Shop 121 Workholding System Increases Vacuum Surface Area for Milling Fixtures Technical Tooling's Vacu-Grip composite workholding system vacuums milling fixtures by using a granular media technol- ogy that configures to any complex three-dimensional shape and pulls a vacuum across the entire surface area of the part. The increased vacuum surface area and surface fric- tion is said to double the holding strength over conventional grooved vacuum tooling. The system decreases milling fixture lead times, elimi- nates toolpath interference, reduces scrap rates, produces holding force on the entire surface area, speeds part and tool change-over, and has a wide range of size and geometric capabilities. | Technical Tooling (Techni-Grip) 253-922-3090 Modular Vise Clamps Two Workpieces The Hoffmann Group has released a module for its Garant Xpent five-axis vise. The center jaw, which can be optionally fitted to the base rail, enables users to clamp two workpieces with just one vise and process these parts in a single operation. The vise is based on a modular design concept. Clamping modules, base rails and spindles can be indi- vidually combined, and the convex clamping modules can be turned 180 degrees. The newly developed center jaw offers another bonus in terms of flexibility. The vise provides clamp- ing force as high as 40 kN and 90 Nm of torque. It is available in three different heights and two widths. | Hoffmann Group USA 844-448-7725 We You Perfect fi nish supply the solution for economical milling processes. are looking for the tool to produce the best surface fi nish.
