The fourth-axis fixture above, was designed and manufactured to hold four square parts simultaneously, using only two clamps. By using only two clamps, the operator was able to load the parts quicker and easier than before. By designing a trunnion style fixture to fit an indexer, the customer was able to machine three sides per part. Previously, the part was manufactured utilizing three operations, one part at a time.
The fourth-axis fixture below, was designed to hold parts on opposing sides. With this fixture the customer was able to machine three sides with one clamp holding two parts. Again, less clamps holding more parts should equal faster loading times. Another nice feature of this fixture is the ability of the v-blocks to be interchangeable with other different sized v-blocks, allowing for the machining of different diameter parts on the same fixture.
