Difference between Clamping & Holding​

Difference between clamping & holding​

Exact, stable positioning before and during the measurement is decisive. Even changes in the μm range affect the results. Workpieces are either clamped or held depending on the situation. Here is the difference between the two:​

Clamping: Temporary securing of a part in a defined orientation and position using force closure. Clamping fixtures are used in measurement technology whenever probing forces take effect or machine movements can influence the position of the workpiece (e.g. active damping).​

Holding: Bringing a body into a defined position without exerting force. Holding devices are usually used in optical measurement technology or for CT applications (see VDI Directive 2860).​

Pallet systems are an efficient solution for automating the loading and unloading process of parts on ZEISS Coordinate Measuring Machines. With pallet systems, multiple parts can be loaded onto a pallet and measured in a single program. This saves time and increases productivity, as well as reducing the risk of human mistakes.​

Pallet systems also allow for unattended operation, freeing up operators to focus on other tasks. Additionally, pallet systems can be customized to fit specific part sizes and shapes, further optimizing the measuring process. Overall, pallet systems are a valuable tool for maximizing efficiency and accuracy in CMM operations.​

The ZEISS THETA pallet system can be used for tactile gantry and production measuring devices. Pallets are available with or without bore grid. Bore patterns are available in different sizes and grids. This allows you to easily adapt your own fixtures or clamping devices.​
