Vision System Fixture Kits

Renishaw Vision Fixture Kit

Renishaw’s vision fixtures offer two unique fixturing solutions designed to fit your specific vision system or multisensory machine:

  • Quick load corner (QLC)
  • Interchangeable vision fixture (IVF)

Each system uses an acrylic base plate that allows for the use of backlighting for a clear view of the part on your vision system.

Renishaw vision fixtures can be purchased in preconfigured kits and additional components can be purchased separately. A typical kit consists of a quick load corner (QLC), one base plate and a comprehensive set of components. The type of parts you are going to fixture will determine which kit you choose. Renishaw offers two kit types:

  • Clamping kit
  • Magnetic and clamping kit (contains magnets for fixturing steel parts)

Quick Load Corner (QLC)

Renishaw’s acrylic base plates contain recessed steel pins that locate precisely onto magnets within the quick load corner. This enables quick, easy and repeatable loading and unloading of plates on to the machine. The edges of the quick load corner (QLC) are serrated so that parts can also be mounted directly against them and fixed with Renishaw M4 or M6 fixturing components, for quick and easy inspection. Once you have fixtured the part you can document the set-up for accurate re-creation.

Interchangeable vision fixture (IVF)

The interchangeable vision fixture (IVF) is ideal for machines larger than 450 mm x 450 mm.

This fixture consists of a frame and acrylic subplates that can be designed to use all, half or a quarter of the frame’s total size. The frame is made from anodised aluminium and designed to fit your specific vision machine.

The interchangeable subplates can be modular with M4 or M6 threaded holes (10 mm or 12.5 mm on centre) or custom made. A combination of both custom and modular subplates and components can be added and made to fit the same frame, allowing for maximum flexibility.

Each IVF is designed for your specific machine to ensure the correct size and proper fit. Please include your machine make and model number when enquiring.
