Three-Legged Spider Clamp From Phillips Precision

Designed to hold delicate round parts without distortion for vision inspection

Published: Monday, October 8, 2018 - 12:00

(Phillips Precision: Boylston, MA) -- Phillips Precision’s Products Division announces its new 3-Legged Spider Clamp as part of the Inspection Arsenal LEAN, Quick-Swap inspection fixture system. Not only does Phillips Precision offer the only quick-swap standard fixture systems, but it provides quick, creative fixture design and quick shipping of your orders. Inspection Arsenal tooling will help optimize your inspection process and uncover hidden profits.

This unique vise is specifically designed to hold delicate round parts without distortion and allow maximum back lighting for vision inspection (also works well for CMM inspection). Designed to replace bulky, traditional three-jaw chucks that limit access and can distort parts. The Spider Vise is designed to hold parts from 1.18 in. to 6 in. in diameter. Each leg has adjustable pins with o-rings to provide grip when part is in place. Spider-Vise is black anodized aluminum sitting on a ¾ in. x 2 in. steel stand-off secured by a flathead screw. Add taller stand-offs to gain more height when necessary. Available with ¼-20 and M6 mounting thread.

Inspection Arsenal will protect your company profits in many ways:
• Enjoy a rapid return on investment
• Inspect more parts per shift
• Create multiple quick-swap setups per CMM
• Move fixtures from one machine to another
• Increase the number of employees who inspect
• Adapt and reuse existing fixtures effortlessly
• Access granite surfaces easily
• Use CMM palletization features
• Work toward lights-out inspections
• Use as dedicated tooling—add it to your job box
• Ships immediately, as product is ready-made

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. The 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.
