SHOP SOLUTIONS “Prior to the DoveLock Quick Change jaw system, we


were using custom-machined blank jaws,” he continued. “They required time-consuming leveling, indicating, and locating every time we set up a job. It didn’t take rocket sci- ence to figure out that, with our many repeat shortruns, the DoveLock really was a workholding improvement.” An additional DoveLock advantage allows milling into the changeable jaw plates using the full volume of jaw material. “With previous jaw setups, it was necessary to avoid the two capscrews when machining a feature or pocket into the jaw plate. Utilizing that extra area of metal, the DoveLock allows designing workholding setups not possible before. And we were able to preserve and upgrade our workholding throughout our manufacturing operations at a reasonable small investment,” said George.


MGW has built its business on its ability to deliver top- quality CNC machining. All products are assembled and inspected in its facility and manufactured to military spec- certified standards for materials and plating. Aircraft grade


fasteners and components are always used. Customers speak directly to the owner and designer of products that are purchased. For processes like plating, heat treating, and cus- tom machining and molding of products, MGW works closely with its supply chain to ensure that first-class products are produced in a timely manner. Kurt’s DoveLock is available as a two-component system consisting of: (1) two master jaws with four, low head socket capscrews and a 5/32" (4-mm) hex “T” wrench and (2) a machinable jaw set consisting of two machinable aluminum jaw plates. The DoveLock Master Jaw System is available in both inch and metric sizes and is precision-machined from 6061 aluminum, ensuring accuracy for highly precise and repeatable setups, according to Kurt.

he need for increased production while maintaining tolerances as tight as 11 µm caused manufacturing engi- neers at Stober Drives Inc. (Maysville, KY) to reevaluate their changeover procedures. The American division of an 80-year-old German manufacturer of high-quality gearboxes serves a diverse customer base, including customers in the aerospace, automotive, medi- cal, food processing, beverage, and semiconductor industries. “We build gearboxes in sizes rang-


ing from one that you could hold in the palm of your hand to a 30" [762-mm] cube,” said Landon Garrison, manu- facturing engineer. “Of the many drives we manufacture, our servo planetary series is the most popular. An extremely
