When milling thin-walled parts, time is consumed to create fixtures and plugs to secure parts. Using our workholding technology, the Flux Capacitor, we have significantly reduced the setup effort for securing parts. To secure the part, it is placed inside the rig and surrounded by magnetic ferrofluid, it is then lowered near a neodymium magnet that actuates the fluid and locks the part into place.
