Mate Precision Technologies to Launch New Workholding System
Next generation 52/96 product line increases machining productivity1 prosince, 2020
Minneapolis, November 19, 2020 — Mate Precision Technologies, a global leader in metal forming and metalworking solutions, announced today that it is launching a new line of 52/96 workholding technology for CNC machining operations. Available in January 2021, this new line of vises, bases, and mounting systems maximizes holding power in a compact, quick-change modular design that reduces setup time and process variability. It is designed for 3-, 4- and 5-axis machining centers. “We are very pleased to introduce a new era of workholding,” said Mate Chairman and CEO Dean Sundquist. “As a precision technology company, Mate has used many types of workholding over the years. We were never completely satisfied with the workholding available on the market. Our machinists knew exactly what they wanted so we decided to develop a new, high quality, high performance workholding system.”
A New Era for Workholding
Leveraging nearly six decades of machining experience producing precision, high quality steel products for customers around the world, Mate’s own machinists and product engineers collaborated to create a new level of innovative workholding. Mate’s workholding line offers an impressive selection of options:
- Mate DynoGrip™ self-centering vises feature maximum holding power in a compact system with minimal part movement and zero-point quality engagement with a four-post pull stud pattern.
- Mate DynoLock™ quick change bases provide zero-point quality engagement with a four-post stud pattern and best-in-class center accuracy and repeatability.
- Mate DynoMount™ system includes tombstones, pyramids, risers, and dual right-angle mounts that feature zero-point quality engagement for four-point stud patterns.
Sundquist explained, “What’s really sets this system apart is that our workholding is designed and built by Mate machinists in our Anoka, Minnesota, facility. They know what machinists want in a workholding system because they want those same things themselves.” The Mate 52/96 workholding system includes QuickSpecs™, Mate’s unique product identification system. QuickSpecs allows real-time access to critical user data, CAD models and potential integration into business systems. Additionally, the product supports common robotic interfaces and palletizing systems to support factory automation. This new line is designed and manufactured with Mate’s renowned performance standards for best-in-class accuracy and repeatability. The workholding system is backed by the company’s sophisticated technical support, unsurpassed product quality, responsive customer service, and 100-percent satisfaction guarantee.
