MicroLoc® Kit and Custom Workholding Systems
MicroLoc® can provide a workholding system that's right for you, whatever your requirements. If you are looking for a versatile, general-purpose, system for sub-contract work, that will grow with your workload, then consider our standard kits. If you need something for a particular job, but with an eye on future work, we can offer a customised system that will improve your productivity, but won't get put under the bench when the first job is finished.
Choosing a Workholding Kit
Decide if you require a kit, or bespoke service (kits are generally available ex-stock). Next, choose a suitable jaw width and clamping force that will best fit the range of parts you will be machining.
Decide on a suitable pitching of jaws (eg component width + cutter size + clearance), and determine if this is best fitted to a 50mm, 60mm, 75mm or 100mm pitching of t-slot. (Remember that intermediate or offset positions are possible for the clamping elements.), and decide on the likely maximum number of parts you will need to hold.
Choose a size of baseplate or kit, either to the number of clamping stations, or by the size of your machine or pallet size. Finally, choose accessory jaws as required. We have a page devoted to an overview of mounting and assembly instruction on this website.
Those customers unsure of the ideal size of MicroLoc® for their needs may call us with some details of their requirements and we can provide a CAD layout for them to consider.
Need a Custom Fitting?
Customers opting for a customised service will be supplied a baseplate with the necessary fixing holes, bushed location holes for mounting on cubes, or even edge locations and fixings for pallets.
Customers wishing to discuss a customised build should visit our contact page or, alternatively, may phone us directly to discuss their specifications on
