JERGENS EXPANDS ITS WORKHOLDING PALLETS TO INCLUDE 4-PIN AND MANUAL ZPS MODULES
Wednesday, July 16th, 2014, Cleveland OH– Jergens Inc. announces that their range of pallet solutions has been expanded to include two more styles, a 4-Pin pallet and a manual version of the company’s popular ZPS (Zero Point System).
The new 4-Pin pallet mounts directly to the machine table and uses a single hex actuator for quick fixture exchanges with precise secure location for reduced set up time. Locating studs can be mounted directly to existing fixtures to convert them for quick change-overs. A machinable blank fixture plate is also available as an option.
The new ZPS features a manual single hex actuator to release and secure fixtures for a range of applications large and small. The manual actuation eliminates the need for air or hydraulic connections required with current ZPS systems. The new manual ZPS modules are available in two sizes, K10 and K20 and offer timing slots for 90 degree part indexing.
“The two additions complement our range of pallets that includes the Drop & Lock™ pallet changers that integrate with our Fixture-Pro® line of multi-axis tooling and our QCB series allowing customers to choose the system that matches their specific need”, says Paul Kieta, National Sales Manager for Jergens Workholding Solutions.
The Drop & Lock range of pallet changers is available in round and square configurations, two platform sizes, 130mm and 250mm, and in inch or metric mounting patterns.
The QCB pallet series is available in two sizes, can interface with the Fixture-Pro mounting system, and provides for direct mounting of Jergens 5-axis (multi-axis) vises for raising parts above the machine table for 5 axis machining access.
