Not every task has the perfect machine to fit your manufacturing needs. PDQ provides custom workholding equipment for the toughest needs, offering the support of a professional team from contact to installation.
Are there tasks a workholding machine cannot handle?
Workholding machines are fairly rigid and yet lexibile Each machine handles a specific range of parts. The sizes they handle, however, are not unlimited and have specific limits.
That does not mean you are out of luck. If you find yourself unable to perform the perfect cut, a custom machine may be perfect.
Benefits of a Custom Holding Machine
Holding machines are among the most important in cutting. Precise equipment and a proper quality control process can save you up to 25 percent over the cost of stretching existing tools.
Benefits of using workholding tools include:
- More accurate and precise cuts
- Decreasing time to market by reducing rejects
- Taking the guesswork out of the manufacturing process
You use processes built on precise formulas, especially if using computer numerical cutting. Any deviance from thoroughly researched measurements risks a loss of quality, an issue made more severe when manufacturing errors lead to health and safety issues.
Do not let a lack of available tools keep you from building the perfect product or entering an industry altogether. Custom machine shops help customers create lasting tools for their assembly and repair lines.
From requirements gathering to first use, a good shop works with customers to ensure that their products work. The PDQ team is ready to draft and build to your specifications.
