Products for UHF
What is a UHF System?
A Universal Holding Fixture (UHF) and relative methods corresponds to flexible fixture mechanisms to accommodate a wide range of work-piece contours, geometries, sizes, and configurations. As compared to traditional clamping / holding assemblies that are created for one part and can not be easily used for various different part shapes and dimensions.
Why were UHF Systems Created?
For years organizations were obliged to design and manufacture complex fixtures and tooling in order to properly hold a single free-formed shape. Design, manufacturing, production and storage of these fixture assemblies are very expensive. Currently, companies want to produce small lots of parts on demand and therefore, it is important to find a solution to these expensive fixture systems, especially for large parts like aerospace skin – thus, the birth of UHF Systems.
Field Proven Technology Solution
ICAM successfully implemented its integrated post-processing & machine simulation solution for different types of UHF systems around the world – some with actuator systems (cylinders going up and down with air vacuum system) as well as 3D clamps used to hold the side of sheet metal or composite sheets.
