WDS Pull Down Inserts enable steady hold for 5 axis machining

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

WDS Component Parts has released a Pull Down Insert designed to quickly hold the work piece in position without creating any raised surfaces. Using a reversed internal thread, the clamping pin can retract inside itself to make fixturing a simple task and improve access for the machine cutting tool.

The WDS Pull Down Insert is a pullback threaded clamping insert that provides reliable clamping without obstruction to the machined surface, making it perfect for up to 5 axis machining, unusual shapes and thin walled components.

Commonly used in the aerospace industry, the inserts are designed so that they may be fitted into the fixture plate in the compressed condition, with the whole of the insert below the clamping and location face. This enables the work piece to be manoeuvred into position over the inserts. A standard hexagon key is engaged with the inner component of the Pull Down Insert creating the clamping force.

The inserts are available in a selection of sizes from M12 to M24A
