New Work Holding Kit for Vision Inspection

Phillips Precision Products Division has designed a work holding kit for Vision Inspection that complements its Open-Sight™ LEAN, fast-swap fixture plate system. The work holding kit includes Trigger-Finger™ and Trigger-Point™ hold downs, a clear acrylic platform for extending work out over the viewing area, hole adjusters, Sliding Stop™ and Spring-Loc™ stops and clamps perfect for holding work on your optical stage. All items are packaged in a 5S foam container ready to display. 

Work holding kits can be ordered separately or combined with two new discounted bundles.  Open-Sight Vision Fixture Systems include the work holding kit and a choice between two size docking rails and fixture plates: 1) A 6 docking rail, a 6x6 fixture plate, plus a 30 piece work holding kit OR 2) A 12 docking rail, a 12x8 fixture plate, plus a 30 piece work holding kit. 

Open-Sight docking rails and plates are the vision adaptation of the popular Loc-N-Load™ aluminum plates designed for traditional CMMs.

According to the company's co-owner, Catherine Phillips, "We've been asked more times than I can count to replicate our unique interlocking system for vision.  Now vision users can enjoy the benefits of our affordable, ready-made inspection fixture components. 

All Inspection Arsenal™ designs are LEAN, technique-altering solutions that help break inspection bottlenecks affordably.

Now users have the option to dedicate a low-cost plate for gauging to speed up re-calibration… a significant time-saver especially on multi-sensor machines. For faster, LEANer setups of repeat parts, dedicate fixture plates that become part of the job kit. Phillips Precision plans to add plate sizes and welcomes inquiries about fixture solutions.

The vision fixture plate system is affordable and flexible enough to:

  • Reduce Startup Costs: Purchase only the plates you need.
  • Customize Affordably: Choose only the configurations that work for you.
  • Simplify setups and "fixture-up":  Use as dedicated tooling for production jobs.
  • Enhance your investments:  Fast inspection improves the production pipeline.

"All products designed for Inspection Arsenal are ready-made, affordable and effective, and proudly made in the USA, said Ms. Phillips. "All items are currently available direct from the manufacturer with a 2-day shipping policy and a 100% money back guarantee.
