Pocket NC's V2-50 has made 5-axis CNC milling more accessible than ever before. However, some users may still want to further optimise their experience with custom-designed accessories. In this blog post, we'll explore the creation of a customised collet holder and locknut for the Pocket NC V2-50, designed using SOLIDWORKS and manufactured on a large CNC machine. We'll discuss the benefits of this custom solution and provide a step-by-step visual guide to show how it improves the work-holding process.
Although the Pocket NC V2-50 is a versatile and powerful machine, some users may desire enhanced functionality for specific applications. In response to this need, our machine experts have designed a customized collet holder and locknut to improve the work-holding process, providing increased support and surface contact.
The custom collet holder and locknut were designed using SOLIDWORKS, a popular CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software. The design process focused on ensuring compatibility with the Pocket NC V2-50 and optimizing ease of use for securing the stock.
After finalising the design, the custom collet holder and locknut were manufactured on a large CNC machine. This process ensured high precision and was a perfect fit for the Pocket NC V2-50.
