All based on Original OK-Vise Clamping Method

Что нового

Finnish automation specialist Wisematic Oy has developed a simple turn-key solution for machine tending.

Techman collaborative robots (cobot) are loading the workpieces to the machining center, and then the OK-VISE Powerplate has been developed and used to automatically hold the workpieces in the machine.

Additionally, the co-bot can execute all the actions just like a human operator, eliminating the need for any I/O interface between machine tool and cobot.


It is the year of COVID-19 now and every exhibition is cancelled - including the one that was supposed to be held in Helsinki.

So, guys from machine dealer, Ismo Lindberg Oy, has organized a VIRTUAL SHOW, where the "booth" is showing KIWA machining center with two tooling blocks from OK-VISE supplied with several Multi-Rail units

If you take the corridor to the left, the KIWA HMC will be at your left-hand side.

EMO is the world’s No. 1 trade show for the metalworking industry

In addition to our world-renowned clamping method, we have been demonstrating our innovative Fixturing Concept, which enables easy and reliable fixture building.

NEW: Automation & Digitalization

The world is digitalizing – and we are developing too. The automated clamping and wireless force verification system DIGIFORCE have been the stars of the show.

With wireless DIGIFORCE, the operators of machining centres can now verify that the clamping force is high enough to hold the work piece check that the clamping force is not so high as to damage the work piece measure the machining forces.

Компания OK-VISE разработала систему для проверки силы прижима. Теперь есть система, с помощью которой операторы обрабатывающих центров могут 

а) удостовериться, что сила прижима достаточна для обеспечения надежного положения заготовки 
б) проверить, что сила прижима не превышает необходимого значения, что может привести к деформации заготовки 
в) измерить механические силы обработки

SCADA

Кроме того, у нас есть система FIXTURE SCADA - программный пакет для отображения и архивации информации - предназначенная для сбора статистических данных от контрольных точек крепежной оснастки. Система способствует аналитике и дальнейшим разработкам. 

Эта система будет представлена на выставке "Fastems Open House" в городе Иссум, Германия 20 и 21 Июня 2017. 
Следующая презентация будет во время проведения выставки EMO в Ганновере в Сентябре 2017. Поставки системы заказчикам планируется начать с Октября.

 

Концептуальные решения крепежа компании OK-VISE включены в каталоги многих ведущих дистрибьютеров, специализирующихся в области зажимных приспособлений. С каждым днём растёт объем нашей продукции, поставляемой по всему миру. Особой популярностью пользуются системы Multi-Rail RM.

Одним из крупнейших проектов 2016 года был заказ на поставку 140 комплектов Multi-Rail на базе RM-600. Дополнительно, выросли продажи прижимов для горизонтальной, вертикальной и пяти-координатной обработки.

Hydraulic clamping is available in all our Fixturing Concept systems. Case: Fixturing components for generic-purpose workholding.

We are proud to announce that one of the highlights at the EMO show will be our Fixturing Concept with hydraulic clamping. This is a concept that can be used not only in robotic loading, but also in semi-automated solutions where loading is done manually and automation is used to save clamping time.

One of the most fascinating cases we have ever had was our recent turnkey concept for precision instrument manufacturing. Please take a look at the video.

Overview 1

 

Kytola Instruments, who has now installed a Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) from the Finnish company Fastems, are extremely happy with their investment. Together with 14 new tooling blocks supplied by OK-VISE Oy, including several Fixturing Concept and Multi-Rail setups, the system has improved their flexibility significantly.

Tooling blocks

In total, Kytola is machining today about 100 products with two HMC machining centers in their FMS, typically each component is machined in two set-ups. 

Kytola Instruments is using two major OK-VISE technologies in minimising their set-up times:

1) Multi-Rail RM units

Using this generic-purpose concept the stopper and clamp modules, side guides and parallels can be easily moved in the base rail. Additionally base rail position can also be easily changed using tooling block with 25x50 mm grid pattern.

2) Sub plates with OK-LOCK

When modifying the fixture is not possible, the whole fixture plate can be changed in less than a minute using OK-LOCK zero-point positioning system. Kytola has been using mostly dedicated sub plates in the past. Today - thanks to the flexibility of Multi-Rail system - the amount of dedicated fixtures has gone down. Now only 20% of the fixtures are dedicated sub plates, the remaining Fixtures are built using Multi-Rail units.

95 % of the Fixtures are using OK-VISE low-profile clamps

Detailed case study of Kytola Instruments FMS case is available: Please send an e-mail to olavi.merilainen@ok-vise.com

Kytola Instruments, a Finnish company that is specialised in flow metering components is investing in FMS system. The system integrates 2 Mori Seiki machining centers with FMS containers of Fastems.

OK-Vise Oy was chosen as the supplier for all workholding equipment. Core components of the working system includes tooling blocks, specifically:

  • 10 pieces of the tooling blocks are equipped with Multi-Rail.
  • 4 pieces of the tooling blocks are OK-Lock tooling blocks, which enables changing of fixturings extremely fast.

All together there are a total of 48 pieces of RM Multi-Rail units.

In addition to components in FMS systems with horizontal machining centers (HMC), Kytola Instruments has also invested on two OK-Lock positioning system, for their vertical machining centers (Bridgeport VMC’s). One of the two is installed as an indexer for the 4th axis.

So why did Kytola Instruments invest in FMS system?

We wanted to use two of our machining centers more efficiently,” said Sakari Häyrynen the Managing director of Kytola instruments.

Kytola will highly benefit from this by radically reducing our set-up times, producing more capacity with less machines and increasing the utilization of our machines by operating them also in unmanned hours” he added.

Jarmo Tuohimetsä the production manager commented, “ we wanted to have a state-of-the-art manufacturing system and the FMS system will surely help us achieve that goal. This will also lead to more investments on this system in the future.”

What led you to choose OK-Vise as your supplier?

We’ve had good experience from the OK-Vise fixturing technology” quoting Sakari. He also added, OK-Vise fixturing concept is fast, accurate and reliable. All in all by utilising OK-Vise we will be able to fulfill our needs for efficient work-holding.

Jarmo Tuohimetsä comments, “Best equipment in the market that we can get at the moment. The Multi-Rail RM system is very suitable and work very well for our parts. Multi rails are high quality from our experience.”

Our company was founded by Mr. Olli Kytölä ( "OK") on 10th of April 1984.
We celebrate the anniversary by serving you even better than normally.

When our product range of low-profile clamps is expanding, we have now found out that it is more logical to change the way how we categorize our low- profile clamps.

In our new brochure, and also in www, we categorize our clamps based on their type, not their size (A,B,D,F) like before.

For time being, you can use in www both ways to find information of our low-profile clamps.
