The idea behind Modular Fixturing is simple: Eliminate the hassle and cost of dedicated fixtures and their maintenance, and replace them with precision, flexible components.
Tosa Tool expands upon these core concepts with a unique array of modular tooling plates, a diverse set of components to go with them, and the ability to create your own plates and components if you desire.
Every Tosa Tool Modular Sub Plate and component CAD Solid file is available in any format you require. All of our components are designed in SolidWorks, but we can easily convert them to any format you require. Assemble your entire setup virtually before you pull out the toolbox.

When you shop for a modular fixturing system be sure the company you choose offers a complete line of fixturing components that work with your hole pattern and are rugged and designed for long life. They should offer Vises, Angle Plates, Tombstones and components that allow easy setups for flatwork as well. Modular Fixturing is only as good as the products that work with your plate. Some you will need to build, but your plate supplier should offer many standard accessories and hardware. Tosa Tool has been designing and building Modular Fixturing Plates and Components since 1992. We will also quote your designs, and work with you on your ideas and modular needs.
