Erowa Technology has added single-base plates to its line of MTS multi-base plates for palletizing workpiece holders, vises and fixtures. MTS single-base plates are designed to provide a precise, powerful and flexible interface between the workpiece and the machine. No clamps are required for installation, enabling the plates to be rearranged and secured on most common machine tables.
The company also will highlight its CMM Qi measuring machine at IMTS, which offers automatic loading and unloading, and full integration of Erowa tooling systems. Easy-to-use software and import modules for CAD and CAM data enable measuring programs to be quickly generated, Erowa says. Additionally, the company’s Q-Measure CAD software plugin defines measuring points and tolerances, then simulation indicates whether any collision points exist before the process can continue.
