Original Press Release:
New Stark Zero Point Mounting Kits Reduce Setups from Hours to Minutes
CNC machines can now be even more efficient by using the new Zero Point Mounting Kits from Carr Lane Roemheld. Machine set-up time can be reduced to seconds optimizing your CNC machinery.
The kits contain all required components to create your own quick pallet change system. The heart of the system is the Speedy Module plate, which is mounted onto the machine table or tooling block. These module plates clamp onto nipples that are attached to the bottom of existing fixture plates. By attaching nipples to all of your fixtures, you can change pallets in a matter of seconds, optimizing short run production. While machining, the operator can set up the next part outside of the machine, maximizing machining time.
The module plates can also be mounted to inspection machines. This makes it possible to transfer parts from machining to inspection while maintaining the same datum points.
The new Stark Kits are perfect for manufacturers struggling with long setups, or manufacturing short runs of parts. Several varieties of pallet changing kits are available along with add on components. For more information contact Carr Lane Roemheld Mfg.
