How it works in 8 easy steps
The MicroLoc system is know for it’s simplicity. The MicroLoc® Workholding system can be configured to a CAD/CAM application for optimum layout of workpieces, whilst the Reference Base datum intersections contribute to ease of programming. Large bases may be fixed permanently to machine tables, encompassing a wide range of applications. Its simple to use and quick to change!
Mount the baseplate to your machine table t-slots using a pair of adaptor tenons fitted to key recesses in the underside of the MicroLoc® baseplate.
Insert locators carefully into the desired positions.
Slide in sideclamps and tighten.
Position clamping jaws by placing a loose rack into cross-slots in the baseplate and...
Using a component as a template, engage the rack in the underside of the clamping jaw into the loose rack to locate the component within 3mm.
Each side of a clamping unit has a sliding jaw with a stroke in excess of 3mm. Again, slide in sideclamps and tighten.
Determine by inspection the number of end-stops and spacers to be fitted.
Load the components and tighten using the central actuating screw.
