The Patented Invert-A-Bolt™ (IVB) Precision Locator is used to precisely locate and hold simultaneously. This unique product combines the “upside-down” holding characteristics of IVB fasteners with the locating capabilities of precision locating (shoulder) screws. Easy to use, easy to install, these locators are manufactured to fit the situation where it is preferable to have holding and locating capabilities combined into one product. Unlike competing products, used only for fixture to fixture applications, these locators can be used to hold/locate parts during machining as well. The IVB precision locator is used in part manufacturing (fixture to part) or in quick change applications (fixture to fixture), or in any application where simultaneous holding/locating is desired.
Hold and locate with one product
Eliminate clamps, vises, and other obstacles that hinder machining
Dramatically reduce setup and cycle time
Produce more with quicker change-outs
Inexpensive solution compared to locating products of similar capabilities
Create options in workholding for hard to locate/hold parts
Now you see it, now you don’t. Simply screw the studs into their housings when not in use and screw them out when you need them using either a pneumatic driver or a standard hex wrench.
