The T-slot clamping system for a flexible work in 3D

The T-slot represents the ideal way to solve the widest variety of clamping tasks with the simplest means (sliding block).

No spatter-sensitive H7 holes are required for receiving special clamping fixtures, and the functional surface (bearing surface) of the slot is located in a fully protected position (see diagram below).

Due to the infinite adjustability within the slot, several stop squares can be inserted precisely into the corners of the components in the housing as well as rack and frame manufacturing.

 

What is the advantage of the T-slot system?

Our patented version of the T-slot between two rails prevents the T-slot from becoming dirty. Rhombic slot blocks can even be inserted from above into T-slots which are already in use.

Certain areas of the table surface can be opened to insert any protruding parts. This has proven to be particularly useful in practice. The rails can also be replaced, protecting the user during particularly coarse welding work.

Why cast plates with slots?

Cast plates with slots, like those taken from retired milling machines, have been proving their worth for years in welding shops. Still, the plates are some times not of a suitable size, and don't have the right stops and clamping fixtures.

Our modular system makes it possible to assemble cast plates in the widest variety of forms that correspond to specific tasks.

Measuring and Positioning

The table surface has a 100 x 100 etched grid for orienting straight lines and angles. Parts are normally created by first placing them at a right angle to the stops on the side and front edges of the table. The length and the width of the part, which normally doesn't match a fine grid, can be easily defined by infinitely adjusting the try-square.

Only possible with the slot system!

The ability to make adjustments in two axes simultaneously makes it possible to precisely adjust the stops at the precise point and in the precise direction.

Precision

The table and the try-square are made to extremely precise standards. In fact, the flatness and the angularity comply with the "H" section, or "Fine" requirements of ISO 2768 T2. The individual rails of the table surface exhibit a tolerance of ± 0.05 mm and are therefore interchangeable.
