EASY-FIX NEW SOLUTIONS - NEW POSSIBILITIES
INTRODUCTION In the last decade, one of the main automatic measuring devices for the metal industries, have become coordinate measuring machines (CMM). Powerful programming and hardware support is allowing to measure and analyze the acquired results, using the mathematical, graphical and statistical methods of data sorting. At the same time, in the metal industries there’s a tendency of application the machining on the CNC lathes with 4 and 5 axes, that allows to concentrate operations using one machine and, even, to complete the part in one mounting. Such principal of machining is reducing the amount of operations, and as a consequence, the deviations during the mounting of the parts are minimal! As a result it is necessary to check the part, as minimum, from 5 sides.
The mounting using vise won’t let measure the bottom side of the part – the RENISHAW knob won’t descend lower than 110 mm from the surface of the CMM table. Classical example: the part is machined on 5 sides
Also, the vise complicates the approach to the part.
The only solution left is to lift the part on a block or prism and… glue it on with plasticine.
Unreliability of fixating (for small parts is not applicable at all due to minimal flatness of the contacting surfaces). Inaccuracy in the mounting of the part, which calls for the manual alignment, and as a consequence, the part checking time is much longer. However, this method is far from perfect. It’s minuses are: So, what is necessary for the more effective application of very expensive measuring equipment ?
THE UNIVERSAL FIXTURING SYSTEM FOR THE CMM CNC – EASY-FIX SIMPLE TO USE FAST AND REPEATABLE MULTY- PALLET SYSTEM RELIABILITY OF FIXATION TOTAL AVOIDANCE OF DEFORMATIONS OF THE PARTS DURING THE MEASURING PROCESS TOTAL AVAILABILITY OF ALL FEATURES OF THE PARTS MULTIFUNCTIONALITY OF SYSTEMS ELEMENTS WIDE RANGE OF DIFFERENT CLAMPING METHODS HIGH ADAPTABILITY TO DIFERENT TYPES AND DIMENSIONS OF THE CHECKING PARTS HIGH GAGE R&R VIRTUAL ASSEMBLY OF THE SYSTEM COMPONENTS
SYMPLE TO USE RELATIVELY SMALL AMOUNT OF ELEMENT OF THE SYSTEM COMBINED WITH ITS MULTY- FUNCTIONALITY ALLOWS TO QUICK AND EASY ASSEMBLE ANY TYPES OF EFFECTIVE FIXATORS USING ONLY ONE KEY
FAST AND REPEATABLE MULTY- PALLET SYSTEM ASSEMBLY OF CLAMPING DEVICES ON THE PALLET OUTSIDE OF THE CMM ALLOWS TO USE AN EXPANCIVE MEASURING EQUIPMENT MORE EFFECTIVELY BY 10-30%
FAST PALLET REPLASEMENT MOUNTING OF THE PARTS THAT ARE TO BE CHECKED ON THE SEPPARATE PALLETS ALLOW TO CHANGE OVER FROM ONE CHECK TO ANOTHER AS WELL AS TO MOUNT SEVERAL PALLETS ON THE TABLE CMM SIMULTANIOUSLY
RELIABILITY OF CLAMPING THE PART IS MOUNTED IN SUCH AWAY, THAT DURING THE MEASURING PROCESS THE MISPLACEMENT OF THE PART WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE SEVERAL KINDS OF CLAMPS AND STOPPERS GUARRANTEE RELIABLE FIXATION
ABSENCE OF DEFORMATION CLAMPING, USING SENCITIVE SPRING CLAMPS OPPOSITE SUPPORTING POINTS ALLOWS TO AVOID DEFORMATIONS IN THE PART WITH THIN WALLS
FREE ACCESS TO THE MAESURED FEATURES MOUNTING PARTS ON TO SIMPLE-FIX MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF, PRACTICALLY, ALL FEATURES OF THE PART
MULTIFUNCTIONALITY OF EASY-FIX ELEMENTS Every element of the EASY-FIX is carrying out several function, as you can see, for instance, on this snapshot
CLAMP IS BEING USED FOR THE MOUNTING OF THE STOPPER … … AND FOR THE JOINING OF TWO PALLETS … AND FOR THE JOINING OF TWO PALLETS MULTIFUNCTIONALITY OF EASY-FIX ELEMENTS
PRISM IS BEING USED AS PRISM, ALSO, AS BRACKET OF CLAMP MULTIFUNCTIONALITY OF EASY-FIX ELEMENTS
WIDE RANGE OF DIFFERENT CLAMPING METHODS THE VARIATIONS OF THE MOUNTING ARE BEING DEFINED EXCLUSIVELY BY THE XYZ PROGRAMMER, HIS EXPERIENCE AND IMAGINATION
HIGH ADAPTABILITY TO DIFFERENT PARTS POSSIBILITY TO CLAMP SMALL PARTS OF DIFFERENT TIPES AS WELL AS …
… LARGER ONES, USING TWO OR THREE PALLETS TOGETHER
HIGH GAGE R&R HIGH RESULTS OF GAGE R&R – UP TO 12%
VIRTUAL ASSEMBLY PRESENCE OF ALL THE ELEMENT IN THE ELECTRONIC VERSION IN THE STEP OR IGES FILES ALLOWS TO ASSEMBLE COMPLICATED DEVICES IN THE POPULAR ADDITIONS OF SOLIDWORKS AND PRO-ENGINEER AND TO USE FOF FURTHER ASSEMBLIES AND CHECKS ON THE MODEL
