Imao-Fixtureworks Offers Quarter-Turn Sliding Locks for Quick Changeover
Fraser, MI -- Imao-Fixtureworks offers a complete lineup of quarter-turn sliding locks for quick change applications -- without the use of tools. Designed for use in sliding applications, the locks allow the user to slide the stop, component, or plate into position, and then lock with a quarter-turn of the knob.
The QCSL type is designed for use in a slotted hole in a plate, which allows the plate to pass below before it is locked in position. The QCSQ type is designed for use with a square bar, allowing the bar to pass through the clamp body and being locked in position once the adjustment is made. Similarly, quarter turn spindle locks clamp a shaft and lock it in place to prevent rotation or sliding.
Each Sliding Lock features ON/OFF markings, making the locked state clearly visible to the operator for safety. The knob also clicks into position to indicate that it is locked.
The Slide Locks products are ideal for applications where there is frequent disassembly or changeover, including packaging, food processing, bottling, printing and assembly equipment, and inspection fixtures.
In addition to Sliding Locks, Fixtureworks offers a wide range of fasteners, locators, positioning pins, ball locking pins, and more.
