Pneumatic Manual Lock
The Vault PM model incorporates pneumatics to raise the pins into place. Unlike the SM, the pins in the PM are naturally in a downward position, and will rise around the part once the air is activated. The air activation can be done with the standalone foot pedal or via a provided signal. Once the pins have been activated and captured the part, the manual locking lever is moved and the pins are now secured. The pins remained locked in place until a new set up is required. The Vault PM is ideal for highly contoured parts.
