Universal Holding Fixture Software

UHF Software

Our Universal Holding Fixtures Provide Complete Composite Part Support for Finish Machining, Water Jet Cutting or Routing. Composite parts are held in the correct, precise shape required to perform Finishing Operations, without the use of dedicated tooling for each part. Changeover from part to part happens in seconds, rather than minutes. Our intuitive software allows parts to be taught easily. Our UHF Controller communicates with the Cell Controller to lower and raise Rods as the part is being machined.
