Choosing the right kit
When choosing which R&R fixture kit you need, ask yourself these few questions:
What size of vision base plate do I need?
For vision machines 400mm x 400mm or smaller = QLC
For vision machines 400mm x 400mm or larger = IVF
Know the make and model number of your vision system and if you have a probe rack or calibration artifact on your machine. Cover your entire measuring range with a fixture plate to inspect the maximum size and number of parts needed.
Do I need mounting holes?
R&R makes insallation easy by providing a drawing showing the exact location of your QLC or IVF on your specific machine and the location of the mounting holes.
What thread size is best for my application?
M4 - Ideal for small, intricate parts that fit in 75mm x 75mm cube
1/4-20 - Ideal for parts larger than 75mm x 75mm cube
How will you document your setups?
R&R's FixtureBuilder software can be used to record setups with a click of the mouse, and can be added for an additional charge. Setups can also be recorded into your software manually.
How many components will I need?
Kits with Set A hold 1-4 parts at a time and work great with a smaller fixture.
Kits with Set B hold 1-5 parts at a time and is ideal for all fixtures.
