Location template services are available to suit customer requirements. Our design office prepares tool layouts according to the customer component drawings - and would show all the tool
positions and stop positions for the sheet or component edges.
The templates for the UK standard are usually 4”, 6”, or 2” BDMS each of 0.25” thickness. Metric sizes for metric bed plates would be 150mm, 100mm, or 50mm widths in thickness of 6,0mm or
8,0mm depending on the bed plate selection.
The templates are deburred and stamped at each dowel location, either with the diameter or shaped hole sizes from customer references.
Stop positions to relate the punched holes to the component edges of the material are also included.
Templates up to 3,3 metres (130”) in length can be produced in one length, but where longer lengths are necessary, these are produced in two pieces with a joiner plate to maintain the
accuracy over the full span.
Tolerances are generally +/- 0,10mm (0.004”) but closer tolerances are provided by jig boring co-ordinate
