Spline Yoke Fixture
Spline Yoke Fixture

This innovative new design for a spline yoke fixture features a rotating plate with work supports to hold the ears on the yoke so the bores can be machined.  Past fixture designs were forced to use long stroke cylinders so there was enough room to load the part.  The new design has a significantly shorter clamp time.  You can see video of the fixture clamping on our YouTube page.

This fixture design was a challenge because of the 20+ unique part numbers that it had to  accommodate.  All of the different parts are kept centered by a cam mechanism that locates each part by its wheel hub flanges.  Dampening cylinders stabilize the bowl during machining.  The subplate that the dampening cylinders mount to can be swapped out for different part families.
