Workholding

 
 

Versatech develops solid workholding solutions that can stand up to the harsh conditions of a repetitive manufacturing environment. The quality and repeatability of this process starts with a robust workholding fixture. These designs can be based on customer specifications or our knowledgeable engineers can help determine the best way to process a product from start to finish. Then our expert machinists and assembly technicians make it a reality by offering turn-key hydraulic integration into your equipment.

  Hydraulic Fixtures  

Versatech will design, manufacture, and assemble custom hydraulic fixturing in order for you to firmly and consistently hold your components for your manufacturing process. Whether the application is for a turning, milling, welding, and many other types of machine tools, Versatech will work with you to provide a cost effective and reliable workholding solution. Versatech will provide a complete information package upon project completion that includes all 2D prints, 3D models, and schematics.

 

  Manual Fixtures  

Versatech will design, manufacture, and assemble custom manually actuated fixturing as a more cost efficient alternative to hydraulic fixturing for low volume parts. Versatech's manual workholding designs incorporate ease of loading and clamping ergonomic considerations to minimize operator fatigue. Manual fixturing utilizes standard strap clamps, toggle clamps, edge clamps, and other custom designed and purchased clamping components.

 

  Rotary Trunion Fixturing  

Do you wish to use a vertical machining center with a rotary indexer for more flexible machining access to your parts? Versatech will design, manufacture, and assemble custom hydraulic or manual fixturing to allow the operation to access multiple sides of a part in one setup. A rotary setup with a trunion plate allows the customer to use a more economical vertical machining center to gain versatility versus using a horizontal machining center. Versatech will work with any OEM rotary indexer provider to satisfy your specifications.

 

  Turnkey Systems  

Versatech offers a complete hydraulic workholding integration system. Our engineers and controls technicians can design, build, and install a full turnkey package that will fully integrate your workholding fixture to the machine tool. Versatech cares about your operator safety and machine safety, so we make sure to tie in the system to the door controls, E-stop, and various other safety components using light curtains and palm switches, if requested.
