The system is said to be able to increase overall pro- ductivity by streamlining setups and reducing machine idle time. The clamping system has been optimized to work with vir tually any type of machine tool, including those with T-slot or grid-pattern tables, as well as machines with pallet changers. It fea- tures flexible references to enable quick imple- mentation of existing fixtures and pallets, which provides economic and productivity advantages. By minimizing the distance between the connec- tion's reference surfaces and the workpiece to be machined, the mounting is more stable, enabling operators to use the highest cutting rates.
