Modular CMM Fixturing

August 13, 2007
A complete line of modular CMM fixturing in ¼ to 20 thread size for holding parts during inspection is available. This system offers fixture plates, fixture towers, a wide selection of standoffs and pin rest pads, magnetic rest pads and soft-touch clamps. Hard-coat, black anodized aluminum CMM fixture plates have ¼-20 tapped holes on ½-inch centers and are alpha-numerically labeled for documenting fixture setups. Standard fixture plate sizes start at 12 inches by 12 inches and go up to 28 inches by 40 inches to cover most CMM measuring ranges. Special fixture plate sizes can be quoted. ½-inch, ¾-inch and 1-inch diameter standoffs come in ½-inch, ¾-inch, 1-inch, 2-inch and 3-inch height increments to allow quality managers to build repeatable part fixtures that offer optimal part access for measurement with a coordinate measuring machine. After a part has been located and positioned, soft-touch clamps provide light clamping force for holding parts in position under touch probing.
