Mod Tech Industries Inc., a production machine shop in
AAM consists of two plates, locator stops, bumpers or guide rails and an air-supply and control system.
The concept is to allow for the measurement of a part located on one AAM plate in a measuring location, while another product is simultaneously being set up or staged on a second plate.
Once the first part gets measured, it is moved via the AAM plate to its home position as the plate floats on a cushion of air, and the second plate is moved into position.
Mod Tech said the plates can easily lift and move more than 500 pounds worth of parts.
The company has a video on its Web site, www.modtechindus tries.com.
