Zero Point Mounting System – Cut Set-up Times by Up to 90%.

Fix, Position and Clamp in a Single Step with Jergens’ Zero-Point Mounting System.

 

Jergens is proud to introduce the best-engineered Zero-Point Mounting System (ZPS) on the market.

 

This revolutionary technology cuts set-up time by up to 90% by combining fixing, positioning and clamping in a single operation. Available with either pneumatic or hydraulic release, these positive locking locating modules allow operators to quickly change out large and small machine fixtures with extreme accuracy and minimal effort.


Other features include:

  • Repeatability <0.005mm (0.0002")
  • Minimizes set-up time
  • Hardened stainless (AISI 440B) steel construction
  • Integrated safety system
  • Compact design
  • Positive locking
  • High retaining force
