CMS Industries introduces UHF fixture system

CMS engineers have developed a flexible tooling system (UHF) which uses the machine spindle and servo axes, to automatically set the height and angle of a matrix of vacuum pods. The system provides an automatically adjustable holding system for complex curved parts as used in aerospace, giving savings in the costs of individual fixtures, storage space and allowing for easy updating and new projects.

Consisting of a matrix of 99 passive vacuum cups( positioned at differing centres to cater for large and small parts) each 85mm diameter with a vertical stroke of 700mm, the cups can be positioned + or- 45 deg from horizontal and for the full 360 deg in the XY plane. Covering an area of approx 3.5 m x 2m the system allows for multiple datums which can be automatically changed by the machine to suit the customer's requirements, thus offering great flexibility and ease of use.

Utilising the many years of experience CMS have in the use of vacuum holding systems, the (UHF) system is another step in the technological advances made to improve productivity for its world wide customer base.
