Air-Glide Fixture Plates Make It Easy to Move and Inspect Heavy Parts

The Inspection Arsenal™ Loc-N-Load™ quick-swap fixture system can now be ordered with air assist. Let your CMM and fixture plates do the heavy work. With a flip of a switch and one pinky finger, inspectors can easily glide the weight of an anvil across the granite.

According to Steve Phillips, President of Phillips Precision and inventor of Inspection Arsenal™, "The technique-altering Loc-N-Load™ system is designed to break bottlenecks and expose hidden profits in inspection. We've answered a number of customer requests by adding the air-glide feature to our quick-swap system."

Now companies inspecting heavier parts can take advantage of the magnetic puzzle-like, quick-to-swap system. The air-glide feature can be easily added to the standard 12"x18" fixture plate per customer request. Additional special order size plates are 18"x18", 18"x24", 24"x24", and 24"x36".

The standard fixture system includes several size docking rails, fixture plates, end caps, a unique plate for the qualifying ball bar, and an angle plate. The hole pattern seamlessly integrates when interlocked. Plates can be ordered individually or in pre-configured bundled systems which include work holding kits.

The system allows customers to start off small and add plates that can become part of the job kit for LEAN set-up reduction. An infinite number of setups can be swapped in and out quickly to increase the number of parts inspected per shift.

Inspection Arsenal™ complements other fixturing and the value makes converting from other techniques very cost effective. Plates with the air-glide feature are made to order. Standard Loc-N-Load™ product is ready-made and the company has a same-day shipping policy.
