Interchangeable Vision Fixture (IVF)
Renishaw’s interchangeable vision fixture (IVF) is ideal for machines 450 mm × 450 mm or larger.
The interchangeable vision fixture (IVF) makes holding parts an easy and efficient turnkey fixturing method. Easily switch multiple fixturing plates on and off the aluminum frame mounted to your vision system.
The anodized aluminum frame and acrylic fixture plates are custom-made to fit and mount to your specific vision machine taking into account the mounting of your probe rack and calibration artefacts.
Fixturing plates can be different sizes, depending on the size of your frame and parts and the number of parts you are inspecting. Plates are designed to use all, 1/2, 1/4 or 1/8 of the frame’s total size and are equipped with handles to load on to the frame. Modular plates come with your choice of multi-hole or multi-window threaded hole pattern.
Interchangeable fixture plates can be modular with M4, M6 or 1/4-20 threaded holes (10 mm or 0.50 in OC) or Renishaw can design and build a custom fixture for your parts.
A combination of both modular and custom fixture plates can be made to fit the same IVF frame. Some parts are better suited for custom fixturing depending on the orientation, the complexity of the part and the frequency of the inspection.
