  • Inverted Stud Ball Element Allows Full 5-Sided Mac
    Advanced Machine & Engineering’s (AME) new patent-pending inverted stud ball element allows full, five-sided profile machining that decreases overall machine time for a variety of industries including aerospace, medical, and automotive....

  • This self-aligning fixture element (S.A.F.E.) features: 

    • A ball element that has 6 degrees of rotation in any direction. 
    • Swiveling ball element contact pads that allow less internal stresses for bent or angled parts requiring clamping for machining.
    • Viton O-Ring protection that prevents penetration of chips and coolant within the ball element system guaranteeing long life. 
    • Fixed and adjustable threaded ball element heights. 
    • Fixed Press Fit ball element heights for locating and positioning. 
    • Custom sizes available upon request.

    The ball element and stud combination provides a one-component design for stress-free clamping by conforming right to the part that is being machined.
