Fixtureworks will showcase several new product lines. Highlighting the exhibit will be its lineup of Trimax vises, low-profile Trigrip carbide grippers and the APS zero-point positioning system.

Trimax production vises enable users to increase machine potential with multiple-part clamping, quick-change components and easy adjustment, the company says. Vises in this line are suited for production, five-axis and machinist applications.

Trigrip carbide gripper inserts are designed for low-profile clamping with no dovetail workpiece preparation. The triangular grippers feature serrations designed for steel, hardened steel, titanium and aluminum, and are equipped with two rows of teeth at different angles to increase the pull down effect. The inserts are integrated with the Trimax line of vises and can be used for upgrading existing vise jaws.

The APS zero-point positioning system is designed to connect the clamping device or workpiece with the machine tool for faster setup times and increased precision. The system features receptacles with three air-activated jaws for increased rigidity, clamping force and repeatability of 0.0002". The pins are released with the application of air pressure.

The company will also display its compact Imao air-assisted clamps, supports and locators designed for remote-control activation and simultaneous control.
