Our capabilities include integrated hydraulic workholding fixtures, manual clamping fixtures, large machine workholding, and specialty equipment.

Hydraulic Workholding Fixtures

Stanek Tool’s specialty is providing hydraulic clamping fixtures for CNC machine tools. We have substantial experience designing and building:

  • Multi-sided tombstones to machine multiple parts on horizontal machining centers
  • Window-style fixtures to allow front and back side machining of parts in a single setup on horizontal machine centers
  • Complex 5-axis fixtures for universal machining centers
  • Prismatic and round part turning fixtures for mill/turn machining centers, horizontal lathes, or vertical turning centers
  • Trunnion style fixtures for vertical machining centers
Manual Clamping

Many jobs don’t require automated clamping due to lower production volumes or size of the component. Stanek Tool can help you with design and build of manual clamping fixtures as well.

Large Machine Workholding

Stanek Tool is also experienced in developing workholding solutions for extra-large applications including:

  • Horizontal Boring Mills
  • Universal and Gantry-style Machines

Fixtures for large machines can be designed with manual clamping, or when higher degrees of safety, repeatability or production are concerns – with hydraulic clamping. When quick changeover is required to optimize productivity and reduce overall fixture costs, Stanek Tool is experienced in providing modular fixture subplates with zero-point clamping systems.

Specialty Equipment and Fixtures

In addition to CNC workholding fixtures, Stanek Tool has designed and manufactured specialty equipment such as:

  • Assembly/press units
  • Leak test fixtures
  • Welding and positioning fixtures
  • Robotic gripping end tooling and workholding
