Workholding Systems

Modular Tombstones help build high density workholding.

Modular Tombstones help build high density workholding.

Available in 2 and 4 face models and 4 different sizes, ToolBlox(TM) modular tombstones are highly rigid, A36 HRS steel and help to attain workpiece immobility and to dampen cutter induced vibration. They accommodate all types of workholding devices including single, double, and multiple station vises, either manual or hydraulic. Bolt holes and dowel patterns are provided on each face for...

Workholding System is designed for fragile components.

Workholding System is designed for fragile components.

Suited for difficult-to-clamp components, FIXTURBLOKÂ-® uses metal alloy as fixturing medium to encapsulate components, distributing pressure points across surface. Fixturing metals used to form retaining block solidify at temperatures from 140-720Â-ºF. After machining, component is released from fixturing medium by mechanical operation or melt-off process. Unit accommodates components...

Positive Lock System provides workpiece holding solution.

Positive Lock System provides workpiece holding solution.

Positive Lock system creates form-locking connection between vise jaws and workpiece. Indentations on workpiece interlock with corresponding serrations on vise jaws, resulting in hold that will not shift. Only 0.12 in. of material is in vise, and near-complete 5-sided access is made available without re-clamping. Rough hot-rolled and saw-cut stock can be used in place of pre-milled pieces.

Workholding System offers modular design.

Quick-Pallets(TM) modular universal workholding system uses vacuum to hold special templated plates or pallets for part setups and changeovers; changing pallet requires no tooling or clamping. On machine bed, units are located in same spot every time because they are registered using beveled-boss in cavity system. Configurations include T-nut with pneumatic short-stroke clamps, Vacumate...
