The company offers Amrok ready-to-use dedicated manual fixtures for horizontal and vertical machining centers and other CNC machinery. According to the company, dedicated manual fixtures offer a variety of benefits for customers, including reduced machine setup and cycle times; improved operator safety; improved tolerances resulting from the use of a single fixture as opposed to multiple fixtures; and reduced workpiece handling, which in turn can result in increased part production. Amrok tombstones are also available and can be designed per customer specification. The tombstones can be built with edge locating, hardened and ground wear pads, center locating or mounting holes. Additionally, tombstones can be designed with plain faces; hole patterns; precision bushings and threaded inserts; or with precision T-slots. The company also features the Triag modular workholding system. The modular design of the system allows for the clamping of small parts in a high density by attaching the clamp modules to rails. This rail-based system allows high part density in a limited working area and simple, quick-change setups, the company says.
