Big Kaiser’s UniLock stabilizer system provides lateral support for tall parts during machining, welding or assembly processes and enables the transfer of loads down to the table or base. 

If there’s a need to back off feeds and speeds to achieve finishes, there’s a chance the part is not completely stable. One option to increase stability is to add an extra point of contact by using a temporary locating feature or weld tabs and brackets. However, the company’s zero-point, stabilizer system can adjust to any part, according to the company.

The system attaches to the worktable and the side of the workpiece to provide lateral support. The system is also especially useful for more mobile parts of odd shapes and sizes. What’s more, integrating it into existing setups is quick. The system stacks easily and uses a wide variety of gripping forms.
