THE SIGNIFICANCE OF WORKHOLDING

How Workholding Increases Output
The Costs and Benefits of Horizontal Machining

Workholding for Advance CNC Machining of Grove City, OH used to mean just vises on their vertical machines. Now on the HMCs, workholding often entails a column fixture mounted in the machine using the Ball Lock system from Jergens, a system that assures rapid clamping and precise setup location. This system pays for itself when customer demands suddenly change because the Ball Lock tooling enables jobs to be rapidly swapped in and out of a machine.
