Vision inspection machines have grown in popularity and in SIZE.
There are some large pieces of glass out there with very limited fixture options. Phillips Precision has added versatile Spacer-Plates to its Inspection Arsenal® Open-Sight™ vision line.
Insert as many 6x6" or 180x180mm spacers as you need to place your parts where you need them. The Open-Sight™ Spacer-Plates are made of 0.5" thick, clear polycarbonate and include a magnetic male and female Loc-N-Load™ tongue to lock plates together providing a highly repeatable location for both vision and tactile inspection -- no matter the size of your machine stage.
Not only are Open-Sight™ Spacer-Plates ideal for inspecting parts closer to the center of a large glass stage, you can also modify them for your own needs. Many inspectors use tape, putty and even hot glue to hold parts directly on the glass; only to take longer, limit their work holding options and eventually damage the expensive glass surface.
Instead, take advantage of the protection, repeatability, and simplicity of quick swap polycarbonate Open-Sight™ fixture plates and deliver perfect parts faster. Choose from a variety of Open-Sight™ plate sizes and work holding with ¼-20 or M6 threaded, even preconfigured bundled systems are available to help create the perfect part setup.
Benefits of going modular and quick-swap:
[b]Inspection Arsenal® complements other fixturing you may have and the value makes converting from other techniques very cost effective. Plates with air-glide feature are made to order. Standard Loc-N-Load™ product is ready-made and the company has a same-day shipping policy so an order today can be improving efficiency by tomorrow.
