New HMC for work-holding specialist

New HMC for work-holding specialist Following years of growth, Cambridgeshire-based Micron Workholding Ltd has invested in a new Matsuura H-Plus 300 PC5 multi-pallet horizontal machining centre to help it keep up with the UK, European and global demand for its MicroLoc work-holding system www.microloc.com.

Sales director Matt Jenness says: “This is a big investment for our company, but we simply would not be able to keep up with demand without it. The new machine will initially run 18hr a day, six days a week producing the vices and locators for the MicroLoc product. We have seen healthy year-on-year growth for over five years now, and I don’t see this curtailing.”

Available in various sizes and configurations, the MicroLoc clamping system is attached by keyways to the table of the machining centre or milling machine. It then provides an accurate and repeatable clamping area that can accommodate square, rectangular, round and irregular components — regardless of size.

Managing director Mike Jenness says: “Once users have a MicroLoc base-plate on their machine tool, they can set all their components within seconds and know exactly where they are. Datum setting and programming part positions is instant, as operators can rely on the accuracy of the precision-ground base-plate working in conjunction with the location points.”
