This article describes a clamping concept for the flexible machining of spatially curved profiles developed at the wbk Institute of Production Science of the Universität Karlsruhe (TH). Simple geometrical considerations form the basis of the prototypically implemented clampingsystem design. The approach presented in this article allows for accuracy improvements regarding the positioning of the profile in the clamping system on the basis of markings applied onto the surface of the profile. Besides, the preliminary test rig set up and first results on the detection of themarkings by means of digital image processing are presented.
