Flexible Hydraulic Workholding Saves Set-up Time

Press release date: March 11, 2014

Planet Products Corporation introduces flexible top tooling modules for use on the ProHold series hydraulic vises and vise towers. The flexible top modules along with the base module can act as a vise, fixture plate, hydraulic chuck, or any combination thereof, allowing a quick change, flexible workholding system for various sized work pieces. Although the vise and tower modules are designed for high production applications, the system's flexibility allows lower volume manufactures to benefit from the advantages of hydraulic workholding, with the versatility of modular tooling systems.
