Production Solutions Launches New Vault Tooling Part Holder


Reading time ( words)

Production Solutions Inc., a provider of Adaptive Tooling Solutions, is pleased to introduce its adaptable, flexible and universal Vault Tooling Part Holder. Vault Tooling is available in a variety of standard sizes, pin lengths and densities as well as custom solutions that can be configured for most applications and machines.

The Vault is an adaptive tool that can be used in applications where the reduction of custom tooling, fixtures, molds or jigs is desired. The Vault’s patented technology uses a high density array of pins that automatically conform to the shape of any part. Once locked, it creates a “nest” to hold the part during the desired process. After completion the Vault is simply reset to prepare it for a new part.

The Vault can be used on bench-tops, robots or integrated into machines or work cells. This adaptive tooling eliminates the expense, time and inventory management of custom molds, jigs and fixtures. Whether using the Vault as a manual operation or fully automatic, setup and changeover is completed in seconds, ensuring maximum equipment uptime as well as improved productivity and quality.

Offering a wide range of patented products, from the cost-effective manual lock systems, fully automated models or a custom solution, Vault Tooling offers three worry-free solutions that are proven to reduce changeover time, improve quality, eliminate part damage and increase machine utilization once implemented. Additionally, the leading-edge Vault Tooling line takes automation to the next level, advancing the goal of total hands-free operation for quick change applications.

The Vault Tooling line is a proven investment with impressive ROI. Factory wide implementation guarantees increased revenue resulting from reduction of costly rework and labor. Add to that the highest quality of product, an industry leading guaranteed warranty, ease of maintenance and the best customer service.

Common applications for Vault Tooling include: laser engraving/marking, pad and digital printing, metrology, robotic end-of-arm, injection molding, inspection, part moving and stamping.
