ZERO POINT POSITIONING

MULTIFUNCTIONAL ZERO POINT PALLET SYSTEM FOR ALL MACHINE TABLES

With exceptional positional accuracy

Quick·Point provides ridged precise and repeatable multifunctional mounting of different fixtures on machine tables, indexers, cubes, rotary tables and mill-turn machine tools.

  • The lowest zero-point-system on market (height only 27mm)
  • Maximum pull down force 6000Kg
  • Highest precision due to repeat accuracy lower than 0,005mm
  • Simple and sturdy mechanical function
  • Manual clamping with one tightening screw
  • Alternatively hydraulic or pneumatic clamping possible
  • Highly flexible because clamping studs can be adapted to other vices, workpieces or devices easily

Quick Point offers a quick and very accurate clamping system It is based on four wedge bolts in the pallet that engage with four grooved locating bolts screwed to the vice or fixture. Clamping and unclamping is by turning a central screw while repeatability is very accurate less than 0.005mm.


Quick·Point Clamping Studs
The pallets may be mounted onto the machine table by four fixing bolts or by edge/corner clamps. In addition, a round version of the pallet is available so that the vice can be moved from a machining centre to a rotary table, lathe or vice versa.

The Makro·Grip vices fit directly onto the pallets, but the special location bolts can be screwed onto any vice, fixture or raw material for use on the pallets.

A plain fixture plate is available with the location bolts already fitted. In addition a vertically mounted Quick Point base and a five sided Quick Point cube is available.

The four clamping points offer great rigidity and being in a square, allow the vice or fixture to be indexed through 90º, 180° and 270°.

It has an extremely low profile at only 27mm so that the working envelope of the machine is not restricted.
The Quick·Tower for horizontal machines allows up to 7 pallets to be mounted to each face on the tower offering multiple clamping opportunities.
