The Many Sides of Workholding
Here's a broad look at different ways to approach workholding based upon the requirements of the application.

Five-Axis VMC
Chiron's FZ 08 KS M five-axis machine contains the Al Nano High Precision Contour Control and allows for fast and automatic control of the feed rate with high resolution interpolation. It is also integrated with an NC swivel rotary table with a fourth axis tilting range ± 100°F and a fifth axis full 360-degree rotation, this machine allows for highly productive machining of complex workpieces, according to the company. This machine comes with a spindle speed of as high as 36,000 rpm, rapid traverse of as much as 70 m/min. , tool change times of 1.

Swivel Head VMC With Bar Loader
Aimed at medical and small automotive parts manufacturers, the FZ12KS tilt vertical machining center incorporates a swivel head spindle for single setup machining of complex parts. It has a swiveling range of -10 degrees to +115 degrees, and it takes 0. 5 second to swivel from 0 to 90 degrees.

Bar Fed Milling Machines
The Mill 800 vertical machining center offers productivity enhancers including milling from bar, turning from bar, a high capacity tool changer, a ± 100-degree swivel head and a trunnion table for four- and five-axis machining. Milling from bar employs a 100-mm through-hole to feed barstock to an indexer for five-sided machining. When the five sides have been completed, the part is picked off the indexer and the sixth side is finished.

Workholding Advantages Of Barstock
Barstock is versatile raw material. It’s easily held, easily fed and has significant capacity for many parts per bar. Usually we think of barstock and bar feeders in relation to turning machines. What about applying the advantages of automatically fed barstock to a vertical machining center?
