Inverted Stud Ball Element
Inverted Stud Ball Element Allows Full 5-Sided Machining
Advanced Machine & Engineering’s (AME) new patent-pending inverted stud ball element allows full, five-sided profile machining that decreases overall machine time for a variety of industries including aerospace, medical, and automotive.
This self-aligning fixture element (S.A.F.E.) features:
A ball element that has 6 degrees of rotation in any direction.
Swiveling ball element contact pads that allow less internal stresses for bent or angled parts requiring clamping for machining.
Viton O-Ring protection that prevents penetration of chips and coolant within the ball element system guaranteeing long life.
Fixed and adjustable threaded ball element heights.
Fixed Press Fit ball element heights for locating and positioning.
Custom sizes available upon request.
The ball element and stud combination provides a one-component design for stress-free clamping by conforming right to the part that is being machined.
