5th Axis - Workholding Evolved

5th Axis products are high quality and designed to improve machine shop productivity.

Here are some ways:

  • Increase pallet load
  • Speed up job changes
  • Decrease machine idle time
  • Better access to the work piece
  • Reduce Number of Operations
  • Hold jobs with less

5th Axis prefers uses of dovetails as the method of holding. They use a 45° dovetail which gives equal down and in force, holding jobs more stable than any other workholding method.

Vises feature jaws that have both serration (for softer materials < 35 HRC) and dovetails. They have 13 microns of repeatability and max clamping force of 22.2 kN. They have a nice low profile design making machining of 5 sides of a workpiece easy. Compared to a traditional vise not as much material is required to be clamped in order to stay steady, so more of a work piece is machinable. Jaws are rereversable, and vises can be direct mounted or be used with either 52mm or 96mm RockLock. Softjaws are available, as well as a built in work piece stopper.

Dovetail Top tooling gives awesome holding power with a tiny foot print. This is perfect of 4 & 5 axis machining where access to the workpiece is a priority.

Bases include standard pallets, raised pallets, tombstones and pyramids. Most of these can be combined together with the 52mm / 96mm RockLock system. This gives a huge amount of flexibility to help maximise your productivity no matter the job.
