IMTS 2018: Fixtureworks offers a lineup of bearing wheels, indexing plungers and TG GripSert inserts.

Fixtureworks offers a lineup of bearing wheels, indexing plungers and TG GripSert inserts; Imao One-Touch fasteners; and other fixturing and workholding components.

The bearing wheels feature a roller bearing and a cover made from nylon, polyacetal, UHMW, PEEK, urethane, steel or stainless steel. They are flat, crowned or radial to suit a range of applications. Bearing- and stud-mount versions are available. Outside diameters range from ¾" to 1".

Spring-loaded, hand-retractable plungers lock items in place for several applications. They are used to prevent any change in position due to lateral force. Available in a range of inch threads, the styles include standard, low profile, compact, slim compact, D-ring, cam lever and weldable.

TG GripSert carbide gripper inserts are designed for low-profile clamping with no dovetail workpiece preparation. With serrations designed for steel, hardened steel, titanium and aluminum, they feature two rows of teeth at different angles to maximize the pull-down effect and prevent lifting of the workpiece. They are ideal for upgrading existing vise jaws.

The fasteners include pin-holding and expanding-pin versions for applications with limited space for traditional receptacles. These fasteners are an alternative to nut-and-bolt assemblies for quick change-overs and installations. They are used to attach fixtures, plates, machine covers and more, joining components with moderate clamping force.
