Free Webinar: Addressing Workholding Challenges on Multi-Axis Machines

The ongoing advancement of multi-axis machining has spurred progress in critical aspects of manufacturing like part complexity, production quality and speed, and prototyping. It’s also introduced a different set of variables to consider for achieving optimum output.

In a recent webinar for the members of the National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA), John Zaya, our workholding product manager, describes how multi-axis machining has, and is, affecting his area of expertise. Specifically, he addresses how multi-axis machines impact important fixturing factors like part accessibility, setup time, location repeatability and stabilizing odd ball parts.

In doing so, John compares and contrasts the multi-axis applications of traditional fixtures like vises, toe clamps and homemade risers with contemporary workholding like tall-jaw vises, dovetail clamps and zero-point clamping systems. He goes on to explain how newer workholding systems can also unlock the full power of automation and transform multi-axis centers once thought to be “one-at-a-time” machines into machines that can process multiple parts in a single setup.

Are you confident you’re getting the most out of your expensive multi-axis machine centers? Maybe it’s time to take a look at the effectiveness and efficiency of your workholding—this free 30-minute webinar is a great place to start. Watch it now:
