Jergens Inc.introduces its newest cast iron tooling columns that are said to offer maximum rigidity. These columns comprise one single piece of cast iron that is made in the U.S.A. They increase horizontal machining potential and provide a solid basis for custom workholding to suit specific customer needs.
Several mounting options are possible, including direct, with center pin locating or edge locating, and also quick-change applications via zero-point system (ZPS) with K20 pull studs and a four module subplate. New column styles include square, cross and rectangular.
Column construction uses stress relieved, class 40 cast iron, with the base and sides milled flat, perpendicular and parallel within 0.001" per ft., providing an accurate foundation on which to setup workholding devices or quick-change systems. Other features include a center locating bore, inch and metric hole patterns, M12 lifting holes for secure hoist ring attachment.
With technical staff support, Jergens tooling columns are customizable as well as easily integrated into full custom design and build projects. Popular patterns and methods include tapped grid, bushed and tapped grid for modular fixturing applications. For quick changes, add either Ball Lock receiver bushings or ZPS modules.
