Techni-Grip holding fixtures

Techni-Grip is a leading workholding product manufacturer located in the Pacific Northwest.  Our company was born in a machine shop. You probably can relate to how our story begins; we faced several complex workholding challenges that most CNC millwork creates. A team of engineers and designers set out to solve it.  Many renditions later and after multiple testing scenarios, we had the final product. We used it in our business with much success when we realized our fellow estimators, programmers, machine operators and inspectors could benefit from it as well.  Our Techni-Grip Systems meet you where you are at with any of your workholding and project requirements with results that promote your profitability and streamline your machining applications.

Techni-Grip workholding fixtures

“I had a very large part out of aluminum (stock size (14 Feetx 12” x 3”). Because of the large amount of material being removed and the geometric shape not being square, we made this in 10 setups where it was flipped around in vises for a final cycle time of 40 hours per part.

The scrap rate due to setup error was over 50%.  I had to create a business analysis and ROI to warrant the expense of the Techni-Grip vises and bases along with the 100 hours of programming to start from scratch. The results were 5 setups and a 12-hour run time with no scrap.”
