Fixtureworks® (Fraser, MI) offers Imao® “One-Touch” pin-and-receptacle fasteners used to attach fixtures, plates, machine covers, and more, joining components with moderate clamping force. An alternative to nut-and-bolt assembly, the fasteners provide secure changeover and installation without the need for tools. The fasteners are available in quarter-turn, knob-locking, button-locking, ball-lock clamping, and magnet-lock clamping pin styles.

Quarter-turn clamps provide high tensile strength with locating repeatability to ±0.1 mm. Knob-locking clamps offer secure clamping. Button-locking pins, made of stainless steel, lock and then release with a press of a button. For tight workspaces, the clamping pins and magnet lock clamping pins with receptacles offer compact locking. Quarter-turn clamps come with a plastic knob, metal knob, or low-profile knob, and knob-locking clamps have a nickel-plated body with a fiberglass knob. Button locking pin clamps come in nickel-plated and stainless steel. Ball-lock and magnet lock clamping pins come with a wrench for installation and removal.
