Big Kaiser Unilock Stabilizer 50Click image to enlargeBig Kaiser Precision Tooling’s Unilock Stabilizer 50 system for Uniflex Ball System provides lateral support for tall parts during welding, machining or assembly processes and allows for the transfer of loads to the table or base.

Stability impacts everything from profitability to employee safety. If there’s a need to back off feeds and speeds to achieve finishes, there’s a good chance a part is not completely stable. BIG KAISER’s zero-point, UNILOCK stabilizer system easily adjusts to any new part.

The system attaches to the worktable and the side of the workpiece to provide lateral support. As the workpiece gets taller and further away from the table, the stabilizer offsets the cutting forces pushing against the workpiece.

It can also be used for mobile parts that are odd shapes and sizes and integrating it into existing setups is quick. The system stacks easily and uses a wide variety of gripping forms.
