Eliminate Fixture Shimming
A leveling fixture is placed between the work holding fixture and machine table (in most cases). It allows for the fine movement and alignment of the workpiece in either a single or dual axis.
While leveling fixtures are generally custom built, most are alterations of existing designs. These alterations are dependent on how much movement is required and at what distance.
The leveling fixture allows the operator to place an indicator on the desired surface and flex the fixture to obtain the desired reading.
While we call it these tools leveling fixtures, they can also be used to align parts with a desired taper (“unleveled”).
Because of the very specific nature of leveling fixtures, we always discuss the project in detail before recommending a solution. Please contact us with your specific requirements.
