Phillips Precision has announced new fixture systems for gauge arms, laser trackers, and all portable 3D CMMs. To further enhance the value and productivity of these tools, Inspection Arsenal now offers quick-swap, highly repeatable fixturing designed for all portable devices.
New for portable CMMs, is a universal Loc-N-Load base plate/dock designed with 4 locations to accept all sizes of interlocking quick-swap plates. The base is manufactured with the same 1x1” hole pattern (¼-20 thread) as the plates to create a seamless work holding area. Clamps are included that are designed to affix any style or brand device to the base plate.
By fixturing on quick-swap plates, operators can change parts in and out without building and breaking down setups. Several unique parts can be setup or multiples of the same part fixtured and programs repeated. Affordable plates can be dedicated and kept with the job box for fast, repeatable setups.
Customers can buy items individually or choose a pre-configured bundle that includes a 24 by 12” base, two 6 by 6” and 6 by 12” plates, a 12x12” plate, a specially designed removable qualifying ball plate, and a versatile angle plate. Also included is a work holding kit versatile enough to hold most any part.
