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.
How do I use them?
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 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 (clamps bolts, etc.) to machining, and to drastically reduce setup times.
The Xzertz™ Retractable Dowel Pins are used for location and designed to go in and out of the multi-purpose hole; they are always located in the fixture, and ready to advance 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™.
Precision Counter-Bores in the bottom of the slot assist the T-slot Locator in accurately positioning linearly in the solt.
Enabled with a 1/4 turn design, T-slot Fasteners are made for efficiency. They come in two sizes 16mm & 18mm slot sizes. 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!
