Our 12080 model has a .38" engagement. Made from stainless steel. Similar to a quick change bolt but without the time wasting.
Our 12081 model has a .286" engagement. Made from stainless steel. All measurements are in Imperial.
Compact housing inverta-bolt. M12 Metric. Similar to a quick change bolt with added benefits.
Accessories for Inverta-Bolts. Insertion tools, grub screws, plugs and pneumatic wrench.
Get rid of clamps and bolts, replace them with Invert-a-bolt (IVB) fasteners. These unique, flush mounted, captive fasteners eliminate obstructions to machining, reduce vibration in your setup and lower cost.
Think of them as a quick change bolt, with the added benefits of never wasting time to grind a bolt to size, nor stop your machine to change clamps. No more warped components due to clamp being over tightened.
IVBs are always in your fixture, always consistently the same length. Simply screw the larger housing diameter into the fixture plate and bring the inner diameter or stud up into your component’s stock material – for a superior holding solution.
In high-speed horizontal applications IVBs are often incorporated for workholding to reduce the risk of tooling clashes. The tiny foot print and “base up” holding power means the IVB presents little risk to high speed spindles.
Typical machining sequence for over-the-top tabbing in picture frame machining confi guration using IVB fasteners:
Begin with a baseplate, the proper number of IVB Smart Locators and IVB Reicevers.
Install IVB Smart Locators into the baseplate using a hex wrench.
Load vise over the IVB Smart Locators and onto the baseplate.
Install IVB Receiver Locators.
