The design and construction
of modular ModLoc Tooling Columns possess numerous advantages versus
1. Overall Strength – The Strength and deflection resistance
of a ModLoc modular tooling column is equal to or greater than
that of a solid tombstone. 2. Assembly Time – A ModLoc tooling column can be assembled
in minutes as compared to waiting weeks for delivery of a solid
tombstone. 3. Purchase Cost – A ModLoc tooling column is generally
much less costly than a solid cast tombstone. 4. Fixturing Flexibility – ModLoc modular tooling columns
are unmatched in allowing extreme fixturing flexibility. 5. Hydraulic & Electrical System Compatibility – The “open” design
of modular tooling columns readily accepts hydraulic & electrical
systems…not possible with a solid cast tombstone.
Solid cast tombstones are appropriately named –
they represent a dying technology!
