Get That PART off the TABLE
Develop an effective five-axis workholding strategy. Modern Machine Shop reviews the Jergens Fixture-Pro® 5-Axis System. Our modular system of plates, risers and clamping address the challenges of 5-axis fixturing. Jergens modular system includes all of the elements to lift the workpiece from the table, provide secure clamping and keep machinable surfaces unobstructed. The underlyings subplate enables an entire setup to be taken on and off the machine quickly.
Better Production – From Modern Machine Shop
Quick-Change Fixturing Locks in Time, Cost Savings
Even if no specific pre-machining bottlenecks
can be identified, time spent performing multiple
setups on multiple workstations can compound
quickly and adversely affect the bottom line. This
is especially true for job shops, which typically
produce a variety parts in a range of quantities.
Military support system manufacturer Seyer
Industries is no job shop, but it nonetheless faces
similar challenges, says Mark Seyer, manufacturing
manager. "While we see some jobs with hundreds
of parts or even thousands, we're not a highproduction
operation," he explains. "We've got to
be very flexible because we also see a lot of smaller
quantities, typically in the 10- to 25-piece range."...

Workholding Equipment: Securing the Right Grip
With increasing usage of CNC machines and arrival of advanced
tooling systems, there has been a significant change in the
design of workholding tools, which are crucial to the support
environment of these high-performance machines. Rachita Jha
explores the latest trends in workholding that are speeding setups
and promising accurate repeatability in tooling systems.
When a workpiece gets
ready for job work,
the sole function
of the workholding
device is to offer
a secure and fast machining set
up that is built to withstand high
speed and strong forces during
the machining operation...
Myths About 5-Axis Workholding – From CNC West Magazine
Myths About 5-Axis Workholding –What You Need to Know
It was evident at the recent IMTS show in Chicago that
5 Axis machining is rapidly becoming the norm instead
of an exception. l felt like a kid in the candy store as
I walked the show. Most CNC machine tool builders offer
several models of multiaxis machines and the capabilities of
these machines are truly amazing. They combine seemingly
contradictory traits smooth motion, rigidity, speed and precision. There is a machine to suit any budget and if a dedicated
5-axis machine is out of one's reach, there are many third
party single and dual rotary devices available enabling you
to instantly turn your 3-axis machine into....

Five-Axis Quick Change System Elevates the Work
Five-axis machining centers are expensive compared to threeaxis
machines. For shops to get value out of these machines,
it's particularly important to be efficient in the ways work is set up.
One aspect of that efficiency is change-over time. Workholding
product supplier Jergens Inc. specializes in this; the company is
known for its "Ball-Lock" quick-change system. However, another
workholding requirement for effective five-axis machining is that
it allow the tool to reach features, faces and surfaces from many
directions. Clamps that obscure or cover the part prevent five-axis
machines from achieving all they can. Jergens says its new 5-Axis
Workholding System aims to bring the same quick-change concepts...
