A new range of workholding products from JWA Tooling.
Specifically designed to simplify clamping and provide improved support when producing parts by the ‘snap-out’ tab machining process.
Our patented design permits the clamping of rough-sawn billets, with zero distortion, eliminating workpiece preparation and in combination with a rotary axis allows for machining from both sides in one operation.
The combination of three centering vices and seven self-aligning vices provides excellent support for workpieces, particularly where the thickness is small relative to the billet area.
With an adjustable frame and interchangeable supports, the snap-out method can be employed with minimal material wastage and no pre-operations.
Zero Workpiece Preparation
The unique patented design uses combination of 3 fixed-center vices and 7 self-aligning vices. This allows for distortion-free clamping of un-even workpieces.
The fixed-center vices, tightened first, align the workpiece on a 3-point plane. The remaining vices self-align to the contour of the workpiece and lock into position as the tightening force is applied.
Smaller workpieces can be clamped using 3 fixed-center vices and 3 self-aligning vices.
Design Optimised For Tool Access
The vice jaws are contoured to suit short, rigid tool-holders, maintaining cutter stability whilst minimising frame width and tool reach.
A central positioning screw maintains frame symmetry during the setup process.
Simple Supports For Height Adjustment
Simple supports, cut from square stock, provides adjustment for a range of workpiece heights.
