We at PAWS Workholding have found through our own manufacturing experiences that there is an “Advantage” to holding Multiple-Parts on your CNC Workcenter. Combining multiple part workholding with the added advantage of fast clamping has proven to give more production milling efficiency. The measure of that efficiency is influenced by many factors, some of which include your CNC machine capabilities, your process, and your people.
Our goal through the use of this ROI workholding calculator is to show you the potential efficiency gains when you get more parts on your machine table per cycle. As with any manufacturing process, there are many variables that go into calculating production output and process efficiency. The old adage is true; good data in will get you pretty good data out. We are attempting to give you a good idea of what might be gained by holding multiple parts under your spindle. It is a wonderful thing to understand the efficiency differences between holding two parts or twelve when you are trying to hit production deadlines and profitability goals.
Have fun with this calculator. Explore the possibilities! We welcome your feedback and are committed to your success through the development of better workholding solutions.
