WESTEC 2013: Quick-Change Workholding
The new CL5 quick-change, five-axis workholding system consists of three components: a subplate, a riser, and top tooling made up of a vise or a fixture plate. The subplate transforms a T-slot table into a modular fixturing plate, allowing flexible and easy clamping and locating of other tooling or fixtures. Every plate has built-in clamping and locating for risers, which allows for quick and accurate setups. Designed to get the part up from the machine table, the Quintus quick-change riser allows five-side part access. The Quintus combines the riser, quick-change capability and precise location in one piece. No other accessories are needed. A range of either fixture plates or vises can be readily mounted on top of the Quintus. Several versions of fixture plates and vises are available, and the vises come in a range of sizes, including some concentric styles. Numerous jaw types and sizes are available to accommodate a wide variety of parts.
