BOYLSTON, Mass. March 1, 2018 – Phillips Precision’s Products Division announces its new Radial Loc-N-Load™ Plate as part of the Inspection Arsenal™ LEAN, Quick-Swap inspection fixture system.
The Radial Loc-N-Load™ plate is 8 inches in diameter, 1/2” thick black hard anodized aluminum with ¼-20 threaded holes. Because not every part is square we decided to use a radial hole pattern rather than a grid pattern in ½” offsets starting from the center hole. The smaller bolt circles have 30° spacing and the larger ones are 15°.
The plate is laser marked with rings to make aligning parts visually easy. The signature Loc-N-Load™ shape is added to locate the plate in the docking rail (sold separately) for inspection. Magnets hold the plate accurately and securely and allow for easy release. Add Inspection Arsenal™ work holding, such as Silver-Bullet™, Trigger-Finger™ hold downs, stand-offs and more to enhance your setup.
The new radial plate is the latest addition to the Loc-N-Load™ fixture plates system. Loc-N-Load™ aluminum fixture plates interlock magnetically to remain firmly secured, yet release quickly and easily for the next job. The system installs effortlessly on all CMMs. Selecting your system is easy with preconfigured CMM bundled fixture systems. Select the docking rail and plate bundle that suits your application. Choose from 12”, 18”or 30”rail and plate combinations. Next, choose the size, of work-holding kit that will suit your application—51, 70 or 146 pieces. They all contain selections of the Inspection Arsenal™ trigger action, low-profile clamps, rails, stops, and hold-downs to enable quick and easy set-up. All docking rails, plates and work holding are also available for purchase individually.
