Rotary Plate with Scale and Vernier Setting Grid

Rotary plate with scale and Vernier grid by Witte Barskamp. This innovation supplements the extensive range of the ALUFIX modular fixturing system.

Witte is expanding its ALUFIX modular fixturing system with another practice-oriented detail: a turntable variant with scale and Vernier setting grid. The innovation allows workpieces to be aligned more easily, quickly and precisely at the same time, the company reported.

The rotary plate with scale and Vernier grid is based on the high-precision ALUFIX fixturing system from Witte and thus adopts its reference values in terms of accuracy and material quality.

The plates that are compatible with the ALUFIX 25 system size have a setting grid in 1° increments and a rotation angle of 0° to 360°.

The 1° grid adapts the system of the TopPos positioning system from Witte. "TopPos is based on standardized precision components that can be easily moved in the grid using a positioning element and thus reach the clamping point precisely-without the need for specially made adapters," said a company spokesperson. "In this way, TopPos makes a good 90% of the cost-intensive special components otherwise required in conventional workpiece systems superfluous."

A high-quality anodized coating ensures that the new rotary plates are extremely durable, even in heavy-duty use, the company reported.
