The removable part stop is retracted before machining starts using M-Coded pneumatics. Hydraulic infrastructure and air-part detection designed and installed by PAWS Workholding.
High volume copper electrical control component being machined on a Brother Speedio R450X1 pallet switching CNC milling center. Part is being held in a hydraulically activated Multi-Vise fixture provided by PAWS Workholding company. All clamping and un-clamping is being done through M-Codes in the CNC program. Maximum part density allows for less tool change time and higher spindle utilization. Spindle probe is being used in manufacturing process to detect any operator mis-loads before cutting begins.
CNC process shows the machining of high volume aluminum extruded A/C fittings for tube and hose assemblies that go into heavy trucks. PAWS Workholding Multi-Vise fixture with automated hydraulic clamping is being demonstrated. Mutiple-part, high-density fixtures minimize tool change time and maximize spindle up time to provide more parts per shift. Machining center is a high-speed Brother Speedio R450X1 vertical milling center with a 16K RPM spindle and pallet switching capabilities.
Aluminum automotive radiator cap being held on its inside diameter by custom designed ID collets that are clamped and unclamped using M-Code activated hydraulics. Nikken CNCZ 180 Rotary Table is being used to access three sides of the part to complete the precision machining. Parts are running on a high speed Brother Speedio S700 milling center. All custom fixtures and hydraulic infrastructure are provided by PAWS Workholding.
Machining process using a 5C Collet workholding system and a Right-Angled Head to produce the cross hole needed on a brass sporting industry part. Parts are automatically clamped and unclamped using M-Code activation in the CNC program. CNC machine being used is a Brother Speedio R450X1 with pallet switching capabilities. Rotary table used is a Nikken CNCZ180. All fixtures and hydraulic infrastructure provided by PAWS Workholding.

Workholding fixtures, custom eight port coolant manifold, and hydraulic infrastructure supplied by PAWS Workholding. Low profile wedge clamps used on multi-vise fixture are PAWS Vise Force 2 machinable jaw clamps.
Complex steel fitting being machined for use in A/C tube and hose assembly for heavy truck industry. Fixture is an automated custom 3J step-collet. Fixture is clamped and unclamped using M-Code activation and hydraulics. Nikken CNCZ180 Rotary table is used to access three sides of the part to make it complete. CNC machine being used is Brother Speedio R450X1 high speed machining center with pallet switching capabilities. All fixtures and hydraulic infrastructure designed and installed by PAWS Workholding.
Workholding fixture in this process is a sixteen station 5C Collet system clamping on the outside diameter of a round aluminum part. A custom form tool is being used to put complex geometry into the inside diameter of the part. Maximum part density and automated clamping reduces tool change time and operator load/unload time. CNC Machine is a pallet switching Brother Speedio R450X1 high speed machining center. Parts are checked for operator mis-load prior to machining using a Renishaw spindle probe. All fixtures and hydraulic infrastructure provided by PAWS workholding.
Part being machined is steel fitting used in A/C tube and hose assembly for heavy truck climate control systems. Workholding system is an eight station 3J Collet system gripping the outside diameter of the part for added rigidity. Clamping and unclamping is automated through M-Codes in CNC Program. Renishaw spindle probe is being utilized for initial mis-load detection picking up “Z” height on each part. Part seating device is PAWS Dead Blow Eliminator to ensure parts are seated properly to control parallelism. Machine is a Brother Speedio R450X1 milling center with pallet switching.
