Ram Product Utilization

Figure A: V-Block Nest
This figure shows a 3 1/2" round part in one of our V-Block nests - with the two locating surfaces parallel to the X and Y axis - and multiple tapped holes In the strap. This fixture also applies itself well to rectangular parts. You can set the two surfaces of the fixture as your X/Y 0.0000 and load round or rectangular parts.

Figure B: Adapter & Vise Use
With one of our Vises mounted to our Adapter ("A" style) you can easily load your work piece (i.e.die block) in the vise while it is laying flat on a surface plate outside the machine, then transfer your set-up to our base-mounted in your machine. With your vise preset on the adapter, you will be true in all axis when you transfer your set-up to your machine - no leveling is required.

Figure C: Rail Edge Vise
Using our 6" Rail Edge, you can mount parts at angles for wiring (as shown here). If you have to wire a contour at angles like this, you will be better off tilting the part and keeping your guide in line for accuracy and improved flushing. You can also use this surface to clamp or mount a special fixture to and still take advanatge of quick locating when pulling your set-up in and out of the machine.

Figure D: Dual V-Block Fixture
With our dual "V" fixture, you are able to hold two smaller round or rectangular parts. Machines equipped with auto wire feed take great advantage of this multiple part holding that our V-Blocks offer. Having this ability will free up your machine operators for longer periods of time between changeovers.

Figure E: Low Profile Vise

With our low-profile design you are less likely to run into interference problems. But because of our Vise's rigid construction, you are still able to hold larger work pieces. In addition, our vise construction features a solid stationary jaw - not ribbed or bolted to the body of the vise. This solid edge assures location and perpendicular holding. In addtion, the drive screw of our vise is plated to improve surface hardness and lubricity.

Figure F: Rail System Adaptibility
With the use of 2 or 3 of our RWT-SUPB Rails, you can support larger round and rectangular parts out into the work area. The ledge that the part is set on is a Z 0.0000 for taper requirements. Mounting uses the standard 8mm bolts.

Figure G: Rail System Optionst
his is a view of one of our Rails with two mounting bases attached. These two mounting bases attach to your machine's table for quick mounting and removal of the rail beam. The one base is the same base that you can then mount your A and B-style adapters - perfect for setting up smaller fixtures in your machine. On this rail, we also show our Rail Vise - which can be moved (clamp jaw and stationary jaw) to accomodate a wide range of parts. On the far side of the Rail, you see a set of RWT-RALFT for holding round or rectangular parts by means of strap clamps. With the rigid structure and standard 8mm tapped holes, the applications of our rails are endless. As shown in the other two set-ups, we have adapters to mount the smaller fixtures to thr rail system for machining through the night or for longer run times.

Figure H: Rail System Options
You can also mount to the side using our Rail System, by utilizing standard strap clamps (shown to the left). Or you can mount one of our RWT-RAIL-PL parts (shown to the right behind circular product) to create a larger mounting surface for securing taller parts.

Figure I: Rail System Options
Here is a view of our Rail System with two smaller fixtures mounted to the side- essentially bridging the open work area. This unique set-up can help utilize more of your machine's area for unattended work hours.
