Modular vs Solid

The design and construction of modular ModLoc Tooling Columns possess numerous advantages versus cast tombstones…consider the advantages

  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!
