+1Axis Indexer allows you to easily and economically add another axis to your machining.
The +1Axis Indexer is adjustable in 15° increments and is compatible with the Techniks DV-075 Dovetail Vise, the 5th Axis D-22 Dovetail Fixture and the Raptor RWP-024 and RWP-024SS Dovetail Fixtures.
You can now perform accurate 3+1 index machining on 3-axis machines for one workpiece or multiple positions across a fixture plate. On a 4-axis machine you can perform 4+1 axis machining in a single part setup or, if mounting multiple +1Axis Indexers on a rotary tooling block, you can perform 4+1 machining on several parts gaining access to 5 sides of the workpiece.
Using the +1Axis indexer on a 5-axis machine allows access to workpiece faces that are unreachable on common pyramid riser block setups.
