Three styles of spring-loaded work support – for the accurate positioning of workpieces for machining, fabrication and inspection layouts – are now available from Fixtureworks.

The fixturing supports are offered in four block-type sizes, five cylinder-type sizes and three miniature versions.

The supports allow users to locate foundation pieces virtually anywhere on a fixture base where workpiece support is required, following contours, shoulders, different diameters and varying heights.

They help stabilise the piece and assure that clamping devices hold secure, preventing chatter and/or deflection of parts when under loads and machine forces.

The spring-loaded feature of the support plunger provides cushioning as a workpiece is loaded and simplifies release and unloading operations.

The rectangular block-style work supports provide from 895 to 2,020lb of load-support capacity and feature a low profile for versatile, flexible application.

The support height can be raised or lowered via rotation of a socket head cap screw, while a tapped hole accepts a replaceable contact element, reducing wear and tear on the support structure and surfaces.

Supports are pre-machined with hole and counter bore for mounting from top using socket head cap screws.

The cylindrical-type work supports also offer load capacities from 895 up to 2,020lb and include a tapped hole in the top of the plunger for use of a contact element.

The cylinder series features a fastening stud on the bottom for tightening via hex wrench for easy, low-profile mounting.

A side screw is included that locks the height of the support plunger in place to bolster rigidity and accuracy of part location.

The compact, miniature work supports are suitable for limited-space locations and light-duty operations, with load capacities varying from 44, 67 and 89lb for the three sizes.

A knurled thumb knob is provided for locking the support plunger in place after part loading, and a bottom stud with hex shoulder allows for simple fixture-plate mounting using a hex end wrench.

All three styles are manufactured using alloy steel and given a black oxide finish.
