Mr. McMillan will address the transition from the mass production of conventional parts to the manufacture of complex high-value components, and how precision workholding has assumed increased importance. This is especially true in the development of rotational parts that demand both tighter tolerances and greater flexibility. In key manufacturing segments, conventional chucks are being replaced with high-precision workholding units offering improved construction, increased gripping power, greater flexibility, faster change-over, and longer life. It’s important in today’s manufacturing environment the precision workholding emphasizes not only the speed of change-over, but the flexibility needed to convert from one setup to another, depending on an application.
