The choice of the right workholding method has a significant influence on the economic viability of cutting processes used for manufacturing, in particular on machining centres. For fast workpiece set-ups and high clamping density Dimac Tooling is now offering the Swiss-made Triag PowerClamp modular workholding system.
Dimac recently announced the exclusive distributorship of Freddy Products (UK) for Australia and New Zealand. Freddy design and manufacture the leading vacuum cleaner, complete with coolant recycling ability, for use on CNC machine tools.
Many SMEs and job shops are faced with producing a variety of parts in a range of quantities, which means that time spent performing multiple setups on different machining centres can cause pre-machining bottlenecks and adversely affect the bottom line. Dimac Tooling recommends investing in a ball lock quick-change mounting system, which addresses workshops’ challenges with vice setup flexibility.
