World class clamping systems from SEI Carbide


For about 25 years OML has been committed to the design and production of clamping systems and equipment for machine tools. 

The high technological level and the specialization of the proposed solutions are the winning cards of the Pavia Company. 

Thanks to its streamlined and flexible organization, coupled with state-of-art productive resources, OML offers a wide range of innovative and extremely functional clamping equipment that can satisfy all requests. This exclusive range is now available through SEI Carbide Australia. 

Starting from standard products, the technical department can also develop special solutions to meet customers’ specific needs.

The development of special equipment standing out for high technological content has a strategic value because the super-specialization represents the best way to deal with a market characterized by growing complexity, where numbers decrease and competitors increase.

For this reason, innovative and technologically advanced proposals are becoming more and more important. 

In terms of products, if we evaluate the technical-functional aspects, OML’s greatest commitment is aimed at optimizing fast and precise clamping solutions, which assure real flexibility to the end-user. 

Due to the market’s trend towards the reduction of production batches and the rise of the manufacturing mix, the availability of solutions allowing an easy retooling of the machine tool and, consequently, a significant reduction of downtimes becomes strategic for the customer.  For this reason the design activity carried out by OML is organised according to modalities that pursue a strict collaboration with the customer, in order to share the specific know-how of the application for which the equipment is intended. 

The company’s range of standard clamping systems is constantly growing.

The catalogue of OML standard products, now available from SEI Carbide Australia, has been widened from 15 pages in 1985 to the present 450 pages. 

OML has developed a series of joint ventures over many years with outstanding US, German and Japanese manufacturers for a mutual exchange of products.

As well as vices, OML has directly designed and manufactured a broad variety of products.

This includes the innovative system Zero Point APS and the new vice Genius, studied for 5-axis machine tools. 

Other notable products include the new clamping Vari-clamp fixtures, which allow clamping of the most irregular components, and Touchdex, mechanical indexing tables.
