2018 IIC Conference - Presentations

July 26, 2016

Monday, 9/12

9:00 to 9:55 a.m. / W-192-A

Session Topic: 5-Axis Reach, Part Accessibility vs. Rigidity

Five-axis machines are becoming more and more popular, but traditional workholding fall short of fulfilling the need. With machine tables turning in all directions and a highly flexible spindle, work holding solutions also need to adapt to these new functions. How can we secure rigidity and conquer the challenge of part accessibility in this new landscape?

Learn how workholding continues to change and evolve to assure part quality and safety in the process of 5-axis machining. Discuss examples of both workholding and tooling solutions that can work and those that can’t with your new 5-axis machine.
