Universal and Lean Inspection Fixturing Like Never Before

Phillips Precision rounds out Inspection Arsenal quick-swap fixturing with Loc-N-Load plates

Published: Tuesday, May 2, 2017 - 12:00

(Phillips Precision: Boylston, MA) -- Create a lean, standardized process across all inspection equipment with Loc-N-Load plates and work holding from Inspection Arsenal. Lean practitioners testify that the design reduces the most expensive waste affecting profits—defective parts, excess motion, over production, and waiting… waiting of talented people and expensive spindles.

Install a simple docking rail designed for your CMMs, vision system, optical comparator, or gauge arm. Standard size interlocking Loc-N-Load plates can then be quickly and easily moved between machines as needed.

By fixturing on quick-swap plates, operators can change parts in and out without building and breaking down setups. Several unique parts can be set up 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 and are in stock and ready for same-day shipping. Plates are sold individually, or choose the preconfigured bundled systems (plates and work holding) for CMMs, gauge arms, vision systems, optical comparators, and more.

Phillips Precision is a full-service machine shop and manufacturer of unique work-holding solutions. Stop by booth 3224 during the EASTEC Exposition, May 16–18, 2017, to learn more about Loc-N-Load plates. Or visit Phillip Precision’s website to see demo videos and case studies about the full Inspection Arsenal product line.
