We provide a diverse line of locating and positioning components for jobs that require precise alignment of the workpiece. Our extensive range of spring plungers includes threaded spring plungers, hand-retractable spring plungers, press-fit spring plungers, push-fit spring plungers, pull-pin spring plungers, and index plungers. We carry press-fit locating pins and spring locating pins, along with accessories such as pin liners, thread retainers, and lock screws. Tooling balls are used as reference points for inspection applications. Built to reduce design and detail time, CMM fixture blocks and plates provide a work base with a combination of standard size mounting holes for positioning. Fixture keys are used to locate jigs and fixtures on slotted machine tool tables. Alignment pins and bushings are removable locating devices used to precisely align workpieces in jigs and fixtures. We also provide angle plates, gauge stops, locating screws, and stock crowders.
Alignment pins are removable locating devices used to precisely align mating workpieces in jigs and fixtures. Pieces are aligned by installing a pin in one part and a liner in the other. Handle styles include T-handle, L-handle, convertible handle, and no handle.
Angle Plates & Irons
Angle plates and angle irons are used to support workpieces in vertical positions for layout, tooling, and machining applications to prevent movement and distortion.
Fixture Blocks & Plates
Built to reduce design and detail time, CMM fixture blocks and plates provide a work base with a combination of standard size mounting holes for positioning.
Fixture keys are used to locate jigs and fixtures on slotted machine tool tables and position the part to be machined in one operation. Our selection of fixture keys includes block keys and sine keys.
Gauge stops speed layout and set-up by eliminating exact position locators, as well as the need to remove the die or fixture for adjustment. The spring-loaded pin completely retracts into the gauge body. Tightening the set screw forces the ball outward, locking the gauge in position.
Locating Pins & Accessories
Locating pins are used for controlled, tight tolerances to increase accuracy in positioning workpieces on fixtures. Typically, two pins are needed to properly align the workpiece. We offer round pins that provide precise location in all directions, as well as relieved or diamond pins that provide clearance with less contact to prevent binding during loading and unloading.
Locating Screws & Buttons
Adjustable locating screws are used with locating pins to accurately position workpieces in jigs and fixtures.
Quick Change Fixture Mounting Systems
Quick change fixture mounting systems provide fast installation with precise location to help reduce setup and changeover times. We offer quick change liners, bushings, shanks, and repair kits.
Slotted Locator Bushings
Slotted locator bushings are used with alignment pins to align two holes without binding. Supplied with roll pin to ensure accurate orientation.
Stock crowders provide positive alignment of stock in dies and fixtures. Saves pilots anc can be easily removed for die sharpening.
Tooling Balls & Accessories
Tooling balls are used as a reference point for inspection, layout, and machining applications. We offer tooling balls with or without a shoulder.
Work positioners allow you to move your workpiece to any position, eliminating the need for elaborate setups with clamps, vises, angle plates, etc. Ideal for soldering, welding, brazing, assembly, model making, etc.
