Workholding in the spotlight as Hyfore heads to MACH 2018
Giving manufacturers complete control and increased speed over their machining operations will be on the agenda when Hyfore heads to MACH 2018.
The UK’s leading workholding specialist will be displaying the latest technology from eight global specialists on Stand H20-185, including advancements in vices, clamp jaws, high speed tooling holders and roller drive rotary tables.
It will also be strengthening its relationship as the sole UK distributor of Midaco by showcasing a small pallet receiver, which demonstrates what the pallet changers could look like on a machining table.
“Industry today – at all levels of the supply chain – are looking to get the most out of their machines, whether that is speed, accuracy or capacity,” explained Gary Dickenson, Managing Director of Hyfore.
“One of the ways they can do that is improving the workholding and making sure the part is held in a way that offers the optimum manufacturing efficiency and improves the life of the machine tool.”
He continued: “This is why MACH is such an important show for us and one where we will demonstrate possible solutions and have experts on hand that can talk though bespoke fixturing and some of the other technology that may help.
“We are the only UK supplier of products from major brands, such as Spreitzer, Matrix, Acrow, Hardinge, Buck, Midaco, Sankyo, UCAM and Kosmek. There will be plenty to talk about at the show.”
Hyfore has spent more than 30 years working with customers on designing and manufacturing workholding at its Coventry facility, with its expertise used by firms supplying precision parts to the aerospace, automotive, commercial vehicle and medical sectors.
In recent years, it has been slowly developing its e-commerce facility to amassing more than 100,000 standard workholding products that can be used with CNC machining centres sold across the world.
www.hyfore.shop has seen a 20% surge in orders over the last twelve months and stocks off-the-shelf vices, collets, gauges and chucks, not to mention specialist parts such as 4th and 5th axis tables.
Rob Beckett, Workholding Product Manager at Hyfore, concluded: “Our work in bespoke workholding gives us a great insight into what customers need and how quickly they require it. This has been fed into the evolution of Hyfore.Shop, with an easy to use website, great search engine to find things quickly and next day delivery available in the UK.”
