Macro Workholding System
The need to
remove a mold component from a machine tool, inspect it and postition
it back to the same center (within .000030) for final machining
lead to the collaboration of PDC, 3
R Tooling, and Herman
Schmidt Co. to develop the system shown here (photo to right).
Used on the
V22 Machining Center, Edge
2 EDM, and Nikon VMR, the
system allows our moldmakers to confidently reposition components
and take cuts as small as .000050.
