Importance of workholding 

Whether cutting, drilling, grinding, shaping, or milling, the goal of any manufacturing process is to generate precision products consistently. Maintaining a secure grip on workpieces is essential for positive results, as slippage can produce part nonconformities and, in some cases, damage machinery or injure personnel. 

The aerospace industry is one of the world’s most watched, regulated, and demanding. Manufacturers must produce components with complex geometries from diverse, exotic materials. To meet unique product requirements, machinists might have to accommodate small or large parts and perform operations at high speeds and with extreme amounts of force. Pairing a manufacturing process with the correct workholding solution offers an array of benefits. 

  • Enhanced precision
  • Faster clamping
  • Greater throughput
  • Faster machining
  • Improved part quality
  • Reduced downtime

Greater part quality is probably the most substantial benefit of custom workholding devices. They provide consistent and controllable clamping forces, cutting down on the amount of nonconforming or scrap parts during production. Consequently, company performance and client satisfaction increase.
