Locators for precise alignment and positioning during the machining or inspection process to optimize workpiece repeatability. Traditional pins, spring loaded locators and extendable variations are available. Innovative systems such as Speedloc Locating and the Flex Locator System allows for easier and more accurate locating and positioning.
Our customers experience a dramatic decrease in time to load workpieces and swap out pallets, plates and fixtures.
Our solutions typically have a small footprint — and a very reasonable price to match. It sense to increase productivity with a minimal investment!
Up to +/- 0.0004" or 0.008 mm repeatability, depending on the product.
Flex Locators fasten and locate in one operation without the use of tools.
Locate + Fasten for Quick Changeover — with no tools. Flex Locator System consists of tapered pins and receiving bushings. In combination, these parts are designed to be mounted on fixture bases and plates to allow for highly accurate locating and positioning with repeatability of .01MM. This system allows for fast and accurate fixture changes, mounting the same fixture on different machines, machining from five sides on one fixture, and quick fixture setup.
The SpeedLoc precision locating and mounting system is designed to solve the common difficulties associated with precision attachment and removal of fixtures, fixture plates, and accessories. This unique system alleviates the prying, pounding, and/or use of jack screws of associated methods. The SpeedLoc’s unique design allows the precision locator to mechanically extract itself from the receiver when removing. This allows for easy separation of fixtures, fixture plates, and accessories. The system is made up of precision locators, receivers, and liner bushings. Advantages include:
Traditional work locating pins for alignment and precision locating.
Work locators are designed to precisely position a work piece during the machining or inspection process to optimize work piece repeatability. Fixtureworks offers several different types ranging from traditional locating pins to spring loaded and extendable variations. Additionally, several of these work locators can handle work piece loads as high as 660 lbs.
