Qwikstak modular sub-plates are the latest addition to the Chick System 5 workholding system, available in the UK from machining equipment specialist, 1st Machine Tool Accessories (1st MTA).

Qwikstak has been developed to provide a cost-effective method of converting larger clamping systems, such as Chick’s 1550 series Qwiklok and Multilok HMC units, into high-density workholding systems for small components.

Through its ability to be removed and remounted on the base unit in seconds, Qwikstak also provides an effective pallet-changing system that minimises loading and unloading time and offers seamless changeovers between jobs.

It can also be secured to standard T-slotted machine tool tables for standalone use.

Incorporating a 50mm alphanumeric grid of 12mm diameter bushed and tapped holes, Qwikstak provides positive and repeatable location of a wide variety of secondary clamping units.

In addition, the unit’s holes are sealed by removable chip plugs to prevent the build up of swarf.

Up to 10 50mm Chick Qwiklok units can be mounted on each Qwikstak, creating 20 clamping positions in a single setup.

Alternatively, six Qwikloks can be mounted longitudinally for use in HMC applications.

An optional right-angle drive option is also available to overcome restricted access in closely nested configurations.

Qwiklok units feature a high-strength dual-station clamping action that provides secure component location under all production conditions.

They are available in six sizes from 50mm to 150mm for both horizontal and vertical machining centre work and feature snap-in reversible jaws for fast changeovers, as well as corrosion-resistant stainless-steel slide assemblies for a long service life.

The system’s low-profile jaws, which can be machined to accommodate a wide variety of product geometry, ensure maximum cutter accessibility.
