"We cut setup times from hours to minutes."
— Drew H. & Luca B. | Bombardier
"Our setups used to take 2 hours. With your modular fixtures it only takes 20 minutes or so."
— Larry B. & Pete L. | LMI Aerospace/Precise Machine
"We reduced our cycle time on one part from 8 hours to 12 minutes, using Invert-A-Bolt™ fasteners."
— Jeff B. | Advanced Precision Machining Inc.
Don't Play Games With Your Machine Shop. Workholding solutions need to be repeatable, precise and rapid. When we think about manufacturing, we want something that is standardized, something that's repeatable, something that your programmers, your machinist, everybody, in your organization can depend on.
At Cessna, we eliminated over 90% of our dedicated tools by using Elijah Tooling's invert-a-bolt fasteners on a universal common modular fixture. This one fixture was able to run hundreds of different parts over the same tool. Granted, you need to tab or picture frame your part, but that's a small cost compared to the savings in tooling, storage, maintenance and retrieval. Plus, your bolts are always right there when you need them.
