Automated Multiple-Part Workholding for Outside Diameter Clamping
Perfect for gripping parts on the outside diameter, the PAWS 5c Collet clamping system allows you to hold multiple-parts on one fixture plate with the added benefit of fast clamping. Our 5c dead length system has been designed with several key engineering features that make it ideal for OD gripping when tight tolerances, rigidity, and part repeatability are critical.
A key advantage of The PAWS 5c system is that it uses fixed (or static) collet sleeves, which control part location and provides center line repeatability of less than .0002”. The 5C Collet system holds parts up to 1.00” in diameter.
Our system also uses a proprietary “Pull to Close” clamping mechanism, so parts are pulled down against the dead length stop as the 5c collet closes, giving “Z” Axis length repeatability of less than .0002”
The 5c Collet fixture plates come in two standard sizes, an 8 x 10” 8-Station system and a 12 x 16” 24-Station system. Custom configurations are available upon request.
