Workholding Tech

For almost 40 years, relying on our self-centering steady rest workholding products and technology is how in nearly every industry, our customers have been able to deliver the precision machining and durability they need. Our AUTO REST®, Turning AUTO REST®, TRUE-GRIP® and PARA-GRIP® provide dependable workholding solutions for engineers of every stripe in machine shops big and small throughout the United States and other nations. 

From cottage industries and barns turned machine shops, to Air Force hangers and hospitals, our innovations foster similar innovations for our partners one micron at a time. At the boundary-pushing edge of prototype development or no-margin-for-error custom machining, there’s our workholding product technology.

Creating a Standard in Steady Rest Technology

As industry originators, first opening our doors in 1982, Arobotech not only established the standard by which workholding technology should be judged, we’ve continued to advance that standard throughout the decades. 

Our steadies aren’t designed for a few fickle precision uses. While engineered to meet the exacting purposes of the world’s most precision-driven industries, our steadies also feature the rugged construction necessary for years of use in high-volume production.

Quality First Manufacturing

Because failure isn’t an option for our industrial partners, failure isn’t an option for us. That’s why we prioritize quality above all else. All steady rest, grinding rest, and workholding technology components are designed, manufactured, and assembled in-house at our facility. We subject each and every one of our components to rigorous inspection before assembly. 

Each of our finished workholding products receives a final inspection before it’s allowed to leave our facility, with all critical sizes measured and confirmed against the specs of our engineers and our customers’ unique specifications. We also test and certify the performance of each of our products, ensuring that each steady rest is up to our standards before it's shipped to you to ensure we meet your standards.
