By: Phillips Precision Inc. 05/08/2014

(Phillips Precision: Boylston, MA) —  Phillips Precision unveiled a new 12-in. docking rail as part of the Inspection Arsenal Loc-N-Load CMM fixture system at Quality Expo in Dallas. The new rail is designed to fit smaller coordinate measuring machines (CMM) while also satisfying users of larger CMMs wanting to dedicate only a portion of the granite for fast-swap fixtures. The smaller rail accepts all of the side interlocking Loc-N-Load CMM fixture plates.

Also added is a simple, low-cost adapter plate so inspectors can easily adopt the lean techniques of the Loc-N-Load CMM fixture system. The new adapter plate simply adds the Loc-N-Load signature shape to existing fixtures, which can then be secured to a Loc-N-Load docking rail for fast, repeatable setups.

Inspection Arsenal is a unique combination of ready-made fixture plates and clamps that can be easily implemented in your quality control department. Loc-N-Load has two main components: The docking rail (in 12 in., 18 in., or 30 in. lengths) is bolted in place, while interlocking fixture plates are quickly secured and released with the use of magnets.  The 0.5 in.-thick anodized fixture plates have a 1 x 1 in. 1/4–20 thread hole pattern and are available in 6 x 6 in., 6 x 12 in., 6 x 18 in., 12 x 12 in., and 12 x 18 in. sizes.
