Slim clamping solutions facilitate accessibility

As a result of the success of complete machining on 5-axis machines, workpiece accessibility is an aspect of growing importance in clamping technology. While in the past it was necessary to use long projecting special tools or multiple setups to machine workpieces over clamping claws or chuck jaws, intelligently designed clamping devices of today allow significantly better access by the tools, in addition to processes that are much more efficient.
