The Loc-Down is a headless bolt with a simple ball-lock mechanism designed to quickly locate and secure large aerospace parts for high speed machining applications. The system is also suitable as a solution for quick-changing fixtures on tombstones and pallet changers. It requires only a drilled and tapped hole (1/2-13 or M12) in the base plate and a drilled hole with an internal groove machined on the workpiece. Custom bushings are available for mounting fixture plates.
