Introducing The Modular Fixture Demo Kit!

Introducing The Modular Fixture Demo Kit!

September 11, 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 Fastener 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.

The Retractable Dowel Pins 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

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

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 Workholding Fasteners.

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!

This is a unique quick-change application. We made quick change plates for an old manual hydraulic press. But, you know what? You can make good use of quick-change in this situation as well. Check this out!

Never scrap another fixture again!
Never scrap another fixture again!

We had customers telling us our Zipbushings were not only saving them time, they were also SAVING their fixtures and tombstones from being scrapped entirely because of the difficulty in removing the standard bushings/threaded inserts we knew we had a special product on our hands.
