Implement hydraulic workholding to provide:
• Vastly reduced setup time
• Less scrapped parts
• More consistent results
• Increased safety
With a setup time per part of only 5-10% of manual methods, hydraulic workholding offer a huge increase in productivity. It also offer lower part rejection because the results are mor consistent as each part is positioned, supported and clamped in exactly the same manner.
Whilst the automated nature of hydraulic workholding systems allows them to be readily integrated with robots their benefits are not just confined to high-volume manufacturing – they are often very attractive for short and medium run production as they can be set up quickly and inexpensively for short runs.
