Modern Workholding Strategies for Swiss-type Machining #IMTS62
Thu. September 13| 1:15 PM - 2:10 PM | W193-B
Swiss-type CNC machines have gained in capability and demand as the machined components they produce are trending toward higher precision and micro-sized features. As the machines have become more sophisticated, the underlying basics of workholding remained unchanged until recently. This presentation is an overview of new developments as well as traditional approaches with relevance to today’s highly capable sliding headstock “Swiss-type” CNC turning centers. The goal is to summarize best-practices for optimizing use of both main and sub-spindle to maximize productivity and overall equipment effectiveness. The material is useful for machinists, CNC programmers, tool crib personnel, manufacturing engineers, estimators, and hands-on managers.
