Royal Machine & Tool Expands Concept of Modular Fixturing
Berlin, CT - A specially designed Dual Modular-Style Fixture that permits the holding of two (2) Strainer Valves on one fixture has been developed by Royal Machine & Tool. The unit's unique Vee Block Design and High Tensile Adjustable Chain provide an adjusting capability for holding a wide variety of different parts. The new development of Dual Modular Fixtures is of particular importance to the Steam Valve Industry because of the difficulty in machining irregular shaped valves which normally require their being machined one at a time. Other possible applications are high volume, irregular shaped parts in other valve industries. Designed and built in the USA to custom requirements, Royal Modular Fixtures reduce the number of dedicated fixtures required for a given family of parts. The systems are designed to expand and contract along the X-Y-Z axes to suit the largest and smallest parts by rearranging the basic location of clamping and locating components. Modular Fixturing Systems include self-centering Vees with adjustments (in all axes) which substantially reduce load and unload time. Royal Machine & Tool Corporation is ISO9001:2000 & AS9100 Rev. "A" Certified and serves the world's leading industries by designing and building custom and standard workholding devices from simple manual fixtures to sophisticated hydraulic fixtures with multiple faces. In addition, Royal provides custom and standard chucks of all types for rotating and non-rotating applications.
