Grippers for Smooth, Slippery Surfaces
The new Abrasive Diamond Surface Grippers from Fairlane Products has a surface comparable to 100-grit sandpaper bonded permanently to a stainless steel pad and is said to provide excellent non-slip gripping on smooth or slippery surfaces with minimal clamping force and surface marking.
Non-Slip Urethane Grippers
The company offers an array of clamps, fixturing accessories and machine tool components suited for OEM, machine, forming and fabricating shops.
Urethane Grippers Provide Secure Holding, Surface Protection
Available from Fixtureworks, Fairlane Products’ Sof-Top urethane grippers combine secure workholding with protection for finished surfaces in assembly, machining, inspection or repair operations. The “bubbled” texture of the urethane top offers firm holding and allows air to escape so no suction is created between the contact surface and the top of the rest pad as it is compressed.
Fixturing Pull Clamps Precisely Locate Workpieces
Fixtureworks’ line of Imao pull clamps are said to feature an ergonomic design and precise, secure holding power. The clamps accurately locate workpieces using precision ground clamping pins and fixture-mounted clamp mechanisms, the company says.
Single Components And Modular Systems
The series of spring-loaded work support components from Imao includes three styles of work supports, which are said to be ideal for accurate positioning and orientation of workpieces in machining fabrication, assembly, inspection layouts and more. The supports are offered in four sizes of block-type units, five cylinder-style sizes and three miniature sizes. The supports help stabilize workpieces and ensure a secure clamp.
