Get a Free Modular Fixture Demo Kit for CNC Workholding!

September 12, 2018

Hey All, 

I get asked so many questions about our modular fixtures and the CNC workholding components inside them by curious CNC machinists and programmers. It really comes down to two main questions. 

  1. How do I use them?

  2. How will they help me?

That's why we created a little plastic modular fixture that we can provide to you as a demo kit. It has many of the basic elements of a full-sized modular fixture in it. This gives you the ability to actually test the fixture out and quick-change something yourselves!

Let me walk you through the demo kit. 

The demo kit contains:
Invert-A-Bolt™ Fasteners

Modular Fixture for CNC Workholding Demo Kit

The Invert-A-Bolt™ Fasteners  in this kit are our acrylic giveaway fasteners. The Invert-A-Bolt™ Fasteners is used to hold the part from the bottom, eliminate obstructions to machining, and to drastically reduce setup times. 

Zipbushing™ Precision Threaded Locator Bushings

CNC Workholding MOdular Fixture Demo Kit with Zipbushings

The ZipBushing Precision Threaded Locator Bushing is our patent-pending multi-purpose hole. You would use this for Dowel Pins, Shoulder Screws, Screws, and our Xzertz™ Retractable Dowel Pin.

Retractable Dowel Pins

Modular Fixture Tooling Plate with Retractable Dowel Pens (Xzerts)

The Xzertz™ Retractable Dowel Pin are used for location and designed to go in and out of the hole, meaning they are always located in the fixture, and ready to pop-up whenever you need them. They can be used in the slot or in the ZipBushing Precision Threaded Locator Bushing 

The modular fixture also has locating divots that we call Livots™.


Locating Pivots & Livets

We have included the T-Slot Fasteners which slide in and out of the T-Slots and perform the same task as the venerable Invert-A-Bolt™ Fasteners

T-Slot Fasteners

CNC Workholding T-Slot Fastener

The T-Slot Fasteners come in two sizes 16mm & 18mm. In this case, we are using 16mm T-Slot Fasteners

What's great about this modular fixture demo kit is that is a hybrid between a standard grid modular fixture and T-Slot fixture. 

All in all, this kit will allow you to show your team members how these workholding components work!

Check out the video and let us know if you would like a demo kit to try out for yourself!

Here's the deal: We'll ship this kit to you at no cost for 30 days inspection. At the end of the 30 days, you'll ship it back, again at our cost, or you may purchase it for $199.95. Please note that any purchases that you make of our products will count towards the cost of this kit. That was easy, wasn't it?

Just, Give us a call today at 940-591-1340 and we will take your credit card number for use in case you do not return the kit.  Of course, your information will be protected in our financial system.

Thanks for giving us this opportunity, guys & gals!

You can see it's got the shock absorbers on this roller table. What happens is it will reach through the window that you're dealing with, and then it will tilt down to the table. So, what we ran into when designing this is. If it's not the right height then it will bang you into your machine. So what we did, is we created a solution that allows us to increase the height of these struts, and then tilt down. So what I'd like to do is demonstrate this today. Show you how it works, and also just kind of point out some of the features of it.

We had a request recently from somebody who asked us “what do you all with all those fasteners for? What is the point of having all of these different fasteners?” So I’m just going to go through it. I am going to try to make it as quick as possible, but I am going to try to give you some ideas as to why you might use a particular fastener.

Hey! Today I'm standing in front of our new and improved loading cart. And I just want to take a very short period of your time to talk about some changes that we’ve made to it and also the quick-change plate. So, I want you to think about 3 minutes 8 seconds. 3 minutes 8 seconds. That’s how long it takes us to quick change this trunnion using this quick-change plate. This plate is made to adapt to the trunnion and in fact we even provide you with the programs so that you can do that adaption.
