Workholding in the spotlight

Giving manufacturers complete control and increased speed over their machining operations was high on the agenda when Hyfore headed to MACH 2018. The workholding specialist displayed the latest technology from eight global principals, including advancements in vices, clamp jaws, high-speed tool holders and roller drive rotary tables.

Hyfore also strengthened its relationship as the sole UK distributor of Midaco by showcasing a small pallet receiver, which demonstrated what the pallet changers could look like on a machining table.
“Industrial companies today – at all levels of the supply chain – are looking to get the most out of their machines, whether that is speed, accuracy or capacity,” explains Gary Dickenson, managing director of Hyfore. “One of the ways they can do that is improving the workholding and making sure the part is held in a way that offers the optimum manufacturing efficiency and improves the life of the machine tool.
“This is why MACH was such an important show for us and one where we demonstrated possible solutions and had experts on hand who could talk though bespoke fixtures and some of the other technologies that may help,” he adds. “We are the only UK supplier of products from major brands such as Spreitzer, Matrix, Acrow, Hardinge, Buck, Midaco, Sankyo, UCAM and Kosmek. There was plenty to talk about at the show.”
