Part Hold Down, Dedicated Fixture

InBoard Gasket Dedicated Fixture for Production Run Parts

     This month’s Fixture Of The Month is from a customer that was was having difficulty holding these small, plastic parts on this spoilboard.  Using our In-Board Gasket Solutions, they got away from a spoilboard and instead created in-house a Dedicated Fixture to make an air-tight set-up.  Using InBoard Gasket from All Star, they were very successful in making more parts in less time after this was completed.

Pod and Rail CNC Router Dedicated Fixture

Every shop we deal with is unique. There are so many different variables that can change (type of router being used, type of material being cut, type of tooling being utilized, type of elevation being based, etc.) that no two shops are ever the same. But every customer that finds us is looking to address a difficulty that they all share: To improve the work-holding of the parts they are looking to vacuum down on their CNC router. We can help them do this is a variety of ways…

This particular customer last week called using multiple 5-axis pod-and-rail machines. Yet they called as they wanted to enjoy the benefits of a nesting table for a particular repeat job that they were looking to vacuum better. Needed the ability to route angled pieces out of a single sheet to later be miter-folded together. We talked them through the idea of making a dedicated fixture to fit over their pods. Used an in-board gasket to seal the vacuum chamber area under each part. Major improvement. Now that the proof of concept has worked, they will be making the same fixture out of a UHMW-type material to prevent leak through the current MDF set-up. Also mentioned to get their vacuum channels closer to the tool path as that is where the torque is occurring. Both of these improvements will result in improved vacuum performance on these particular parts.

The whole fixture set up will 100% percent result in more parts in less time, less waste and cleaner edge quality.

Hold It Better.
Cut It Better.
Profit Better.

If All Star CNC Products can help to improve the work-holding on someone’s CNC router, we will look forward to working with them. Our unique line of CNC Gasket products and concepts will have a specific solution for nearly every application that a customer will present to us. Parts don’t budge in air-tight systems. Gasket creates air-tight systems.

It is possible to make a dedicated fixture with a Pod and Rail CNC Router.

CNC Routers are Capable of Amazing Things

CNC Routers are capable of amazing things. Don’t let poor vacuum performance and inefficient work-hold limit the machine’s production.

Some CNC Router operators are told that if they cannot hold their parts with their existing vacuum system, that they need to upgrade their vacuum pump. That can be a major, unexpected cost for someone trying to keep their business running.

Looking for a more effective, science-based solution: All Star’s gasket products and techniques. Like the lip on your freezer door, gasket materials seals the edge, maximizing vacuum pressure. It allows our customers to not only cut their parts better, faster and with less waste, but they become happier with their CNC’s abilities.

Hold It Better.
Cut It Better.
Profit Better.

 

Poor Vacuum performance limits your production ability.

 

Cut Parts in Less Time

This customer called us because they wanted to make more parts in less time. They were able to do this when they were able to eliminate the need to do onion skins / tabbing on the part, and the necessary work to clean these edges up before calling it a finished part. We helped the customer to create a Dedicated Fixture using In-Board Gasketing. It allowed his Biesse router to produce his desired PARTS in a single pass. Nobody buys a CNC router to make spoilboards. Companies invest in routers to make PARTS. Why is it then that the only thing most shops gasket for is under their spoilboards? Let’s gasket for PARTS. That is how we maximize vacuum performance.

Hold It Better.
Cut It Better.
Profit Better.

Eliminate leakage and improve Vacuum Hold-down

A high-end toy manufacturer running a Techno CNC was having trouble holding their repetitive parts using their old spoilboard set-up. We told them you need to make an air-tight dedicated fixture for those repeat parts. They started applying cling-wrap everywhere to see where the leaks were occurring. By eliminating leak, they improved vacuum performance.

Hold it better.
Cut it better.
Profit better.

Now, customer is making parts in a single pass (no onion skins or tabbing) and are making more parts in less time. A very happy customer, indeed.
