The CL5 quick-change five-axis workholding system consists of three components: a subplate, a riser, and top tooling made up of a vise or a fixture plate. The subplate transforms a T-slot table into a modular fixturing plate for easy clamping and locating of other tooling and/or fixtures. Every plate has built-in clamping and locating for risers, which allows for quick and accurate setups.
A Quintus quick-change riser, designed to get a part up from the machine table, allows five-side part access. The Quintus combines the riser, quick-change capability, and precise location in one unit. A range of fixture plates or vises is easily mounted on top of the Quintus.
