PinLock™ Quick Change Workholding Solution

Our unique PinLock™ system provides significantly reduced setup and changeover times. One user shortened the setup time for machining high-precision aerospace parts from eight hours to under an hour with the PinLock™ system.
The PinLock™ pin assembly engages the workpiece and creates a locking force with line contact. This results in greater stability than our competitors’ systems, which rely on point contact.
PinLock™ features a helical extraction design which aids in overcoming binding in side-load conditions and makes removing the PinLock™ easier in any application.
The PinLock™ workholding system is comprised of multiple components—the pin, a primary or secondary liner bushing, and a face-mount or back-mount receiver bushing, as well as a primary and secondary locator. Two primary bushings can be utilized simultaneously for even greater accuracy.
For larger subplates or applications where higher holding force is required, additional PinLock™ systems may be used. Additional clearance is required on these PinLocks so as not to influence the primary and secondary locators.

See individual product listings for additional information and specifications.
