FixLogix Modular T-Slot CMM Fixture System captures large market share
The modular metrology work-holding fixture systems produced by FixLogix LLC have become perhaps the best selling system in the niche. The unique t-slot style fixture system is designed to stage parts for inspection on coordinate measuring and other metrology devices. The fixture system offers market-leading price/performance that has allowed the company capture major market share while competing against the largest companies in the metrology industry.
T-slot systems offer infinite positioning of locating components, which simplifies fixture construction. The T-slots are combined with a laser engraved reference system that provides clear documentation of the fixture setup for easy repeatability. The T-slots are Alpha-identified, with engraved reference scales along the T-slots. Systems are available in English or Metric versions. The fixture system also incorporates unique clamping solutions with “best in class” functionality.
Designed initially for CMMs, the product range has been expanded to offer modular holding solutions for a wide variety of dimensional metrology applications. These applications include portable 3D coordinate inspection systems such as articulating arms, non-contact 3D scanners, vision systems, optical comparators, and form measuring instruments for checking threads, surface roughness, roundness, and form tracing devices. The system has also been applied to laser engraving applications.
Going forward FixLogix is leveraging its position in the metrology field to expand into other growth technologies in metrology. Recently FixLogix has established distribution agreements with nub3d and Geodetic Systems Inc. to offer 3D non-contact structured light scanners and photogrammetry systems to their customers. Both nub3d and GSI have smooth integration to each other, and also to Polyworks software from InnovMetric. This allows FixLogix to offer an integrated solution to non-contact 3D scanning; including new modular fixture concepts under development for these 3D non-contact systems.
FixLogix LLC was formed in 2007 to produce and sell modular fixture systems for metrology and other light duty part-holding applications. The company also produces modular fixture systems for vision systems, optical comparators, and laser scanners. . The company maintains an E-commerce website: www.fixlogix.com
