Modern Industries is a leading innovator of workholding and fixturing components, focusing on the development of more efficient, faster, and lower operating cost methods for a wide range of machining and manufacturing applications. Their mPower™ line of products are designed to increase productivity while reducing costs. These products include their SpeedLoc precision locating and mounting system, the ModLoc modular tooling columns and plates, and a line of heavy duty work supports.
As a manufacturing operation that faces global competition, they fully understand that the need work to faster, smarter and at a lower cost is the key to either success of failure in today’s competitive marketplace.
If you’re looking for a powerful way to realize significant productivity gains while reducing costs, there’s only one name to remember… mPower, exclusively from Modern Industries
This is the basis of the entire workholding system.
The SpeedLoc precision locating and mounting system is designed as a more efficient and effective alternative for the attachment and removal of fixtures, fixture plates, and accessories. Thanks to the quick-install and self-extracting features of this system, changes to fixturing set-ups can be accomplished quickly and accurately. SpeedLoc components include precision locators, receivers, and liner bushings.
The mPower line offers you three receiver systems that enable you to easily create a fixturing system to best meet your specific machining needs.
Standard Face Mount Design: This receiver is interchangeable with competitive face mount designs produced for “blind hole” applications.
Compact Face Mount Design: Occupies a small footprint that optimizes sub-plate space, is easier to install and less expensive than standard face mount receivers.
Back Mount Design: Provides a retrofit option for users of competing systems (like Ball Lock). These receivers enable you to take advantage of the speed, precision and easy installation which the SpeedLoc system uniquely offers without the need to purchase new sub-plates.
The ModLoc modular tooling column system is engineered as an alternative to traditional cast and fabricated columns. They are designed to be rigid and strong, yet substantially lighter and highly adaptable.
These columns are quick and easy to assemble and offer an open architecture, which is ideal for applications using hydraulic, pneumatic, or electrical control systems. The ModLoc modular tooling columns are designed exclusively for use with the SpeedLoc precision locator/fastener system, delivering dramatically improved throughput and reduced operating costs.
ModLoc represents a whole new thinking in modular tooling column construction and design. Now you can handle fixture changeouts almost on the fly without missing barely a moment of production time. Designed exclusively for use with their revolutionary SpeedLoc™ precision locator/fastener system, ModLoc Tooling Columns deliver dramatically improved throughput and reduced operating costs.
