Modern Industries Introduces The New SpeedLoc(TM) Precision Locator/Fastener System for Tooling and Fixturing Applications
Modern Industries of Erie, PA announces the introduction of a revolutionary new precision locator/fastener system for a multitude of tooling, fixturing and assembly applications. Most importantly, these devices offer the ability to make accurate set-up changes faster than ever before which enables significant improvements in machining productivity, throughput rates, quality, and reduced operating costs.
Called the "SpeedLoc System," this patent-pending product is comprised of two parts - a precision "receiver" and a precision "locator", incorporating a high grade alloy fastener to secure the two. The SpeedLoc System features quick location and repeatability of +/- .0004. This revolutionary new product will be featured at the Modern Industries IMTS Booth # E2384.
SpeedLoc has solved the common difficulties associated with precision attachment and removal of fixture plates, tooling, and accessories. Prying, pounding and jack screws are a thing of the past since the SpeedLoc design uses the fastening device itself to mechanically extract the precision "locator" from its "receiver", allowing easy separation of fixture plates, tooling, and accessories. Unlike competing products, SpeedLoc does not require expensive "repair kits" since there are no rubber o-rings to break or finicky ball bearings to fall out or fracture.
SpeedLoc features include...
o Self-Extracting - the unique design of SpeedLoc enables the device to easily and quickly "self-extract" from tooling, fixturing, etc. There is no binding or other hang-ups that either delay removal time or compromise the accuracy of the locking system.
o Easy Installation - the SpeedLoc System is easily installed into a multitude of applications using standard tooling and machining practices
o Compact - requires minimal space in tooling and fixturing applications
o American Made - from specially treated alloy materials
o Interchangeable - with other competitive systems
o High Clamping Strength - ideal for use with hydraulic (manifold) applications
The new SpeedLoc system is part of a broader line of innovative, patented workholding and fixturing products being launched by Modern Industries, Inc. The primary goal driving Modern's product development is the design of more efficient, faster and lower operating cost methods of workholding and fixturing for a wide range of machining and manufacturing applications.
The SpeedLoc system is sold exclusively through authorized distributors. For the name of your nearest distributor, contact Modern Industries.
