CMS Industries (Zogno, Italy and Caledonia, MI, US) introduced its recently-patented five-axis “universal holding fixture” employing vacuum-assisted “pogos” for securely holding parts and tools during machining. The fixture automatically positions the object thanks to the unique “pan and tilt” function of the pogos, which can eliminate the need for customized metal fixtures and jigs, says the company. The universal fixture can handle very large parts or tools, and can position them correctly within 15 seconds. CMS says the system is very reliable, with a small number of moving parts that are sealed from the cutting environment, particularly carbon fiber dust, and the pogos can be quickly changed out if needed in a plug-and-play manner.
