All of our top tooling kits can fit on either the 96mm or 52mm RockLock system. The appropriate top tooling setup for you will depend on your stock size and application.
You can use the 3D Compatibility Tool to see what top tooling options fit your machine table. Each product page also includes a link to a 3D model: Use this in programming to test for interference.
Please contact workholding@5thAxis.com for all tombstone inquiries.
Finding the appropriate RockLock plates depends on getting a table drawing for your machine. (You can also use our 3D Compatibility Tool to see what RockLocks fit on a list of common machine tables.)
From your machine table drawing, we can determine whether your machine would have direct fit or require modification to our standard products. The mounting information for our standard product can be found in our catalog or on each RockLock product page.
If you cannot figure out the necessary mounting information, please contact workholding@5thAxis.com
Our e-mail address is workholding@5thAxis.com or you can call +1 858 505-0432 for additional information.

All 5th Axis Inc. Workholding products are warranted against defects in material
and workmanship for (1) year. Products deemed defective during the (1) year
period shall be replaced without charge providing such defect is due to faulty
material or workmanship and not caused by tampering, abuse, misapplication or
improper installation. Failure to properly maintain and/or properly operate the
product or part under normal conditions will void this warranty. This warranty
does not cover any product or part that has been: worn out; abused; heated;
ground or otherwise altered; used for a purpose other than that for which it was
intended; or used in a manner inconsistent with any instructions regarding its use.
Should a piece of equipment require major component replacement or repair
during the warranty period, it will be handled in one of two ways:
1. If the Purchaser elects to take the responsibility of repairing the equipment and requests replacement part(s), the Purchaser or Sales Representative must contact the Factory for return authorization and a purchase order must be issued. Replacement part(s) will be promptly shipped and invoiced. The defective part(s) must be returned to the factory for inspection. If the defect(s) were due to faulty material or workmanship, credit will be issued to the customer.
2. The equipment can be returned to the 5th Axis factory to have the inspections,
parts replacements and testing performed by factory personnel. Should it be
necessary to return a piece of equipment or parts to the factory, the customer or
sales representative must obtain authorization from the factory. If upon inspection at the factory, the defect was due to faulty material or workmanship, all repairs will be made at no cost to the customer during the warranty period.
5th Axis shall be limited to the replacement or repair of any 5th Axis product or
part provided that such an item is returned to 5th Axis, transportation, shipping
and postal charges prepaid, and there determined by 5th Axis to be covered by
the warranty contained herein. The customer will assume all risk of loss or damage to product while in transit to 5th Axis.
