Material Handling & Workholding from Fixtureworks
Rollers and bumpers as well as workholding components.
Fraser, MI — Fixtureworks® is showcasing its extensive clamping, gripping, locating, positioning, roller, bumper and support products. The display demonstrates the economics and quick availability of standard, off-the-shelf parts and hardware — all from a single-source, which can be used by OEMs, machine, forming and fabricating shop designers, as well as material handling practitioners.

New in the product lineup it the company's urethane covered bearing, cam follower covers and press fit rollers in addition to abrasive diamond surface and Sof-Top grippers from Fairlane® Products, as well as unique manual clamps from Imao®.

Urethane-covered bearings have a smooth surface that is cast directly onto a precision sealed ball bearing, providing a smooth, quiet and non-marring operation. Cam follower covers have a smooth urethane outer surface that is permanently bonded to a steel insert. They are designed to be press fit onto standard cam followers to prevent metal-to-metal contact and damage to finished or delicate surfaces. Press fit rollers have a smooth surface, permanently bonded to a steel insert and allows for customizing the mounting configuration.

The new Abrasive Diamond Surface Grippers, with surface comparable to 100-grit sandpaper bonded permanently to a stainless steel pad provide excellent non-slip gripping on smooth or slippery surfaces with minimal clamping force and surface marking. The non-marking, non-staining Sof-Top grippers reportedly provide excellent protection against damage on delicate work surfaces.

Also on display is a range of unusual manual clamps from Imao® including miniature, heavy duty, swing, pull, push, rocker and snap clamps with forces from 150 to 2250 lb.
