The Alpha system consists of several compact yet extremely powerful magnetic set-up blocks (the 'A-Pods') which can be secured via t-slots onto the table of the machine, or alternatively onto a sub-plate.
The 'A-Pods' (just 92.5mm dia x 106mm high) are connected via a junction box to a controller and a hand held pendant makes the whole system easy to operate. A single pulse of electricity activates/de-activates the magnets so power consumption is negligible.
Pods can be arranged so that true 5-sided machining can be achieved, plus it is possible to machine through for drilling and tapping operations, thus significantly reducing set-up and non-cutting times.
Suitable for all kinds of machines, the system is transportable from one machine to the next and only one controller is necessary to fire any number of machines where pods are used.
The system is offered in affordable kit form, the base kit being 5-pods which is expandable to 12-pods just by adding extra pods as required. Paybeck for these systems is reported to be less than 12 months giving a superb return on investment.
