Tombstones and Cubes

G30 Cast Iron 1 Piece Castings Available in 5 Different Finishes or Full Bespoke Solutions

STANDARD & BESPOKE TOMBSTONES - Ultra Precise & Ultra Rigid


 

 The Gerardi Tombstones range has 5 versions and 5 standard shapes with bespoke solutions available on request. Machined from a single piece of G30 cast iron with walls of 40 mm thickness, inspection is carried out piece by piece on a CNC measuring machine to ensure accuracy. (Also available in high resistance aluminium.)

 

The importance of such products originates from the development and widespread use of Horizontal machining centres and multi-pallet systems which require such structures to support the fixtures or work-pieces. Specific or tailor-made tombstones complete with clamping systems can be manufactured on request in order to better exploit your machines capacity.

The Gerardi Result? The most square, the most rigid, the most adaptable and the most accurate tombstones tailored to your requirements. Ultra-fast set-up times, modularity and ultimately fast cycle times due to the most secure clamping solutions.
