Workholding Solutions

Eliminate tool change time. Reduce operator attendance.

PAWS Workholding has been providing clamping and fixturing solutions to the manufacturing community since the early 1990’s. We have a wealth of experience in solving workholding challenges in production milling environments. Our staff of dedicated, knowledgeable engineers and designers can look at your workholding needs and develop a first class solution to help you achieve your manufacturing output goals.

Our team of Workholding Specialists use their combined knowledge along with some of the industry’s leading CAD/CAM tools, such as MasterCAM and SolidWorks, to design and engineer the right workholding solution for you. We have a wealth of experience in I.D. collet gripping, O.D. gripping (5c), Vise-type clamping, V-block bridge clamping and 4th Axis applications, as well as many custom solutions.

As the originator of our patented Hydraulic Clamping System, we understand the importance of efficiency and productivity in a production milling environment. That is why we have developed a modular clamping system that allows for maximum density under the spindle, or Multiple Part Workholding, along with automated clamping to reduce load times and keep your spindle turning!

Understanding the “Multiple Part Workholding Advantage”, we believe, is critical to maximizing your productivity and efficiency on your CNC Milling Center.

If you are looking for a Workholding Solution, please send us a print of your part along with any pertinent information about your process. Our staff will look at the application and, with no obligation, suggest a solution incorporating the use of our automated clamping system. Depending on the application and budget, we will design and build traditional hand clamping fixture plates as well.
