Let’s face it, workholding is one of the secrets to increasing output and reducing set up times. Workholding solutions allow operators to change workpieces in a highly repeatable manner ensuring the quality of the finished part. The objective is always to optimise the machining of multiple parts whilst maintaining precision.

Improving the capabilities of workholding machinery can have a real impact on the bottom line, so the two articles that now feature in Gear technology magazine should be of real interest.

The first article showcases the latest and most innovative solutions at IMTS 2022. This includes the most cutting edge products (no pun intended) from Gleason Corporation, Hainbuch America, Euro-Tech Corporation and Ringspann. Read more here.

Complementing this feature, in the blog pages, are four key workholding tips courtesy of Big Daishowa. These include tips for handling parts of differing sizes, varied part shapes and material conditions, production, mix levels and the level of operator interaction – click here.
