Sveconek’s high capacity workholding system.
Sveconek LLC’s high capacity workholding system holds up to 10 parts in a single-acting machinist vise. The system is comprised of an array of floating jaw plates that fit between and interact with the existing movable and fixed jaw plates of the vise. The system is engineered as an easy-to-mount and simple to use accessory that fits most 6” vises, according to the company. It is offered in different sized kits to accommodate an array of sizes and shapes of parts.
All kits and components are available in three versions: 7075 aluminum jaw plates with an “integrated step” for typical first operations, which hold on sacrificial material; 7075 aluminum jaw plate blank, machinable for part-specific needs; and 6061 aluminum jaw plate plank, also machinable for part-specific needs.
CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.
For many shops, the decision comes down to a 4- or 12-foot-capacity magazine-style bar feeder. Here are some guidelines for choosing between them.
