Stevens Eng. Inc. and Big Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. have introduced the Unilock starter kit workholding system. The kit allows users to plug the components immediately into their production cell when it supports a Stevens Eng. mounting grid pattern to eliminate setup time. Other grid spacing is available on request.
The captured screw and captured dowel assemblies allow the kits to be installed in seconds, the company reports. The kit also contains universal pallets that allow the user to attach and detach positioning and clamping components or workpieces quickly.
The system can be used in almost any process to exchange items of all sizes, from small parts and fixtures to workpieces of more than 5,000 lbs.
