Large Weldment Machining Fixture

Large Weldment Machining Fixture M13563

Detailed Description: This was a large multi stage hydraulic clamp machining fixture which held multiple versions of a weldment. Linear slides and cylinders were controlled by a stack of solenoid valves located on the fixture. Sequence valves were also used for energizing the hydraulic work supports and swing clamps in the proper order. The solenoid valves were integrated and actuated by the controls of the large VMC the fixture was used on.

The unique fixture design uses linear slides and hydraulic cylinders for moving the clamps and work supports into different positions, which accommodates multiple weldment configurations. We needed to eliminate the operator’s responsibility for change over, ultimately reducing setup time and any chance for human error.
