Fixtureworks® (Fraser, MI), a leading manufacturer and supplier of material handling and machine tool components, workholding technologies and fixturing accessories will showcase its extensive clamping, gripping, locating, positioning, roller, bumper and support products at Booth 3473 during the Pacific Design & Manufacturing Show 2011, February 14-16, 2012, Anaheim, California. The display of products to be shown demonstrates the ability for OEMs, machine, forming and fabricating shop designers, as well as material handling practitioners with the economics and quick availability of standard, off-the-shelf parts and hardware-all from a single-source.

The exhibit will feature the new urethane covered bearing, cam follower covers and press fit rollers in addition to abrasive diamond surface and Sof-Top(TM) grippers from Fairlane® Products, as well as unique manual clamps from Imao®.

Urethane covered bearings have a smooth surface that is cast directly to a precision sealed ball bearing, providing a smooth, quiet and non-marring operation. Cam follower covers have a smooth urethane outer surface that is permanently bonded to a steel insert. They are designed to be press fit on to standard cam followers to prevent metal to metal contact and damage to finished or delicate surfaces. Press fit rollers have a smooth surface, permanently bonded to a steel insert and allows for customizing the mounting configuration.

The new Abrasive Diamond Surface Grippers, with surface comparable to 100-grit sandpaper bonded permanently to a stainless steel pad provides excellent non-slip gripping on smooth or slippery surfaces with minimal clamping force and surface marking. The non-marking, non-staining Sof-Top grippers provide excellent protection against damage on delicate work surfaces.

Also featured will be a range of unique manual clamps from Imao® including miniature, heavy duty, swing, pull, push, rocker and snap clamps with forces from 150 to 2250 lb.
