The company says its modular fixtures make CMM and vision systems more productive. According to the company, setups for inspection routines are easy using components that are simple to use and can be quickly rearranged. Regardless of size, shape or material, the fixture system holds virtually any part. Various parts can be set up on the fixture at one time, saving operator time and fixturing expense. To maintain consistency with future setups, users can document the setup using the company’s CAD-based software, FixtureBuilder.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.
