Phillips Precision Products Division has designed a work holding kit for Vision Inspection that complements its Open-Sight LEAN, fast-swap fixture plate system. The work holding kit includes Trigger-Finger and Trigger-Point hold downs, a clear acrylic platform for extending work out over the viewing area, hole adjusters, Sliding Stop and Spring-Loc stops and clamps perfect for holding work on your optical stage. All items are packaged in a 5S foam container ready to display.
Work holding kits can be ordered separately or combined with two new discounted bundles. Open-Sight Vision Fixture Systems include the work holding kit and a choice between two size docking rails and fixture plates: 1) A 6-in. docking rail, a 6x6 in. fixture plate, plus a 30 piece work holding kit OR 2) A 12-in. docking rail, a 12x8-in. fixture plate, plus a 30 piece work holding kit.
Open-Sight docking rails and plates are the vision adaptation of the Loc-N-Load aluminum plates designed for traditional CMMs. According to the company’s co-owner, Catherine Phillips, All Inspection Arsenal™ designs are lean, technique-altering solutions that help break inspection bottlenecks affordably.
The simplicity and flexibility makes Open-Sight an ideal choice for any size vision stage. If purchasing individually, customers can choose 6 and 12-in. length docking rails. Either size can be joined end-to-end for added length. On larger machines, docking rails can be installed opposite one another to create more “locations” and for greater stage coverage. Magnetized, interlocking half inch thick scratch-resistant polycarbonate plates are available in sizes 6x6, 6x8, 8x8, and 12x8 in. Each plate is offered with patterns of ¼-20 or M6 threaded holes to accept Inspection Arsenal trigger-action clamps. Blank plates are also available at a reduced cost for customers to add holes only where needed.
Now users have the option to dedicate a low-cost plate for gaging to speed up re-calibration… a significant time-saver especially on multi-sensor machines. For faster, leaner setups of repeat parts, dedicate fixture plates that become part of the job kit. Phillips Precision plans to add plate sizes and welcomes inquiries about fixture solutions.
The vision fixture plate system is affordable and flexible enough to:
- Reduce Startup Costs: Purchase only the plates you need.
- Customize Affordably: Choose only the configurations that work for you.
- Simplify setups and “fixture-up”: Use as dedicated tooling for production jobs.
- Enhance your investments: Fast inspection improves the production pipeline.
