Advanced Fixturing Components and Workholding Solutions to be Exhibited



The Fixtureworks booth will feature the TriGrip carbide grippers (top) and TriMax vises, along with a full lineup of workholding and positioning components.

Fixtureworks, a supplier of fixturing accessories, machine tool elements and material handling components, has announced it will be bringing a broad spectrum of its products to EASTEC. Highlighting the exhibit will be its lineup of TriMax vises, ultra-low profile TriGrip carbide grippers and the new Fairlane GP-Series rubber gripper pads.

TriMax Production Vises offer the benefits users need to maximize a machine's potential with multiple part clamping, quick change components and easy adjustment. Vises in this line are suited for production, 5-axis and machinist applications.

TriGrip carbide gripper inserts are designed for ultra-low profile clamping with no dovetail workpiece preparation. With serrations designed for steel, hardened steel, titanium and aluminum, these patented triangular grippers feature two rows of teeth at different angles to maximize the pull-down effect. "Already integrated with the TriMax line of vises, the TriGrip inserts are ideal for upgrading existing vise jaws and more," said a company spokesperson.

The GP-Series rubber gripper pads are ideal as industrial grade contact wear points for automation and positioning applications. They are constructed of black nitrile rubber that is molded to a 1/16 in. aluminum backing that can be mounted flat, contoured or formed to round or sharp corners. Highly customizable and easily replaceable, the pads, offered in strips, come in smooth, fine hatch or course hatch with standard pad heights of 1/4 in. and 1/2 in. Custom sizes and counter-bore hole mountings configurations are also available.

Featured will also be a full line of fixturing accessories including grippers, rest pads, swivots swivel/pivoting positioning components, quick release ball-lock pins, rollers and bumpers and urethane covered bearing rollers. Also featured will be the company's full lineup of manual clamps, spring plungers, rest and riser pads, levers, handles, knobs and hand wheels, supports and stops, risers, T-nuts, sliding mounts, springs, supports, grid plates and columns, and a wide range of quick change precision locating and mounting systems.
