Forgings & Unnecessary Fixtures

Eliminating Unnecessary Fixtures

In this application of 18 foot aluminum forging, significant cost savings were realized by: 

    • Eliminating clamp blocks and rests;
    • Eliminating clamp changes especially necessary to machine under the "lip" of the part; and
    • The elimination of one milling fixture that would have otherwise been necessary.



  • Eliminate costly mill-fixtures
  • Eliminate clamp changes
  • Allow for machining flexibility
  • Limited Material Requirements
  • Reduce stock - add savings
  • Allow for holding without obstructions
  • Reduce Stock Obstructions
  • Allow complete machining
  • Allow use of larger endmills
  • Special Material Requirements
  • Simplify hard to hold shapes
  • Added machining flexibility
