"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."

Today I want to show you something kinda cool. Because it's going to show you the difference between cnc workholding clamps and our workholding fasteners. So, we have workholding clamps on a CNC machine, and we got our workholding fasteners which you can see on this table.
So let me just, this is going to be fast, kinda. I'm going to time myself in using the clamps on and off, using the fasteners on and off. Okay? You with me?
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.

Hey, as you can see there's a stream right behind me and if you listen carefully, you can hear the rain falling. I'm actually not in my normal location: Denton, Texas. I'm up in the Hochatown, Oklahoma. A lot of people call it Broken Bow because Broken Bow is nearby, but I'm on sabbatical.
Hey guys, today I’m out at the home ranch. You know city boy turned farmer- actually wife turned farmer. Believe it or not we’ve got five heifers, one cow, three donkeys, two horses, four cats, and a dog. So, of course, we’ve got to have a 50 horse tractor and that’s why I’m out here today. I want to talk to you a little bit about our tractor and a lot about our products.
