Jergens Inc. announces its Quick Loc (QL) pallet system for fixturing solutions on horizontal, vertical and rotary operations.

Jergens has announced its Quick Loc (QL) pallet system for fixturing solutions on horizontal, vertical and rotary operations. These low-profile adapters and pallets ensure repeatability of 0.0003" and provide clamping forces of nearly 14,000 lbs. A single drive screw is used for fast operation.

Manufactured from case-hardened steel for high rigidity, QL is available in various styles including square, rectangle, round receivers and cubes in both 52- and 96-mm patterns. The selection of bases, pallets, risers and accessories makes the system configurable for an almost unlimited range of applications, according to the company.

The QL pallet system, in combination with Jergens’ compact 130-mm self-centering vise, increases machining access and speeds changeover.
