THE MULTI-CLAMP, from Schmalz, is a clamping solution for small and medium-sized workpieces, allowing for work on all four sides without reclamping.
The system can be used on almost any flat surface, according to the company. It includes a suction plate, which can also be used a stand-alone clamping solution, and the multibase to swivel and rotate the workpiece. The complete system includes an integrated vacuum generator or an optional external vacuum pump. http://us.schmalz.com
