FBLC - Fixtures, Bases, Legs & Components
The Wolverine Bronze Company's Fixture Bases, Legs and Components have been the leader in standardized details since the 1970's. Originally designed by a domestic automotive manufacturer who had the foresight to realize that checking fixture costs and quality would benefit from standardizing common details such as angles, risers and drop assemblies in building checking fixture tools. The benefits include: economy of scale, higher quality standards through consistent machining techniques and reduced tool construction time.
The products, originally marketed under the Artco name and acquired by Wolverine Bronze Company in 1971, have gone from the standard of one company to the standard of companies all over the world. The Artco name was dropped in the early eighties and the products became known as Wolverine Standard Components and Fixture Bases. With the advent of this web site we are introducing the FBLC products division.
The product line was expanded over the nineties to meet changing demand. A metric version of the line was added and steel components became available. Today these details are available in aluminum with English or metric dimensions and steel with English or metric dimensions.
