An easy, accurate and safe fixture change enables high-mix variable-volume production.
A push in, pull out mechanism enabling the fastest changes
The conventional method of changing fixtures with a crane required time, labor and skill. However, the Baby Kangaroo System significantly reduces the overall workload because the mother-baby plate system and sliding mechanism results in a safe and easy change of fixtures.
By simply putting a replacement Mother Base on the table of a machining center and mounting a Baby Plate with a fixture onto it, the operator is able to rapidly push in and pull out the fixtures by using a manual slide together with an automatic lifting function.
