FixLogix LLC introduces a new metric version of their economical modular fixture system for CMMs (Coordinate Measuring Machines), and other 3D metrology systems. The hybrid fabricated T-slot fixture plate is highly functional at a fraction of the cost of traditional tooling plates. The infinite adjustability of the T-slot system simplifies fixture builds for significant time savings.
The Metric fixture plate T-slots are laser engraved with reference scales at 2.5mm increments, and the T-slots are also Alpha-identified. This provides clear documentation of the fixture setup for easy repeat setups.
The integrated component kit has M6 threaded T-nuts and locating components. Vertical slotted risers and cross-slide assembly provide infinite multi-axis adjustments, both linear and angular. Components in the kit are primarily stainless steel or anodized aluminum for years of corrosion -free use. The standard kits are comprehensive, and the component configuration is engineered to provide very effective fixture buildups for a wide variety of parts. This is achieved at a fraction of the cost of competing systems.
Designed initially for CMMs, the system is also being utilized in a variety of coordinate metrology applications. Users of portable coordinate inspection systems such as articulating arms have found the fixture system to be very useful, and the economical price point is attractive for portable arm owners. With the introduction of the Metric version FixLogix is expanding into export markets.
FixLogix LLC was formed in 2007 to produce and sell modular fixture systems for metrology and other light duty part-holding applications. The company also produces modular fixture systems for vision systems, optical comparators, and laser scanners. The company maintains an
