Gel flex is crap! If you put enough in to actually support the board, it bows. Apparently MPM knows this because they include hard pins with the set (kinda defeats the purpose huh)! I trialed the grid-lok and it worked fine and operators loved it. Th

In my last life we had pretty good luck with the Grid-lok system. Just not very good for extremely large boards, or very thin ones. (Tends to push thin ones up and bend them before the table rises. **On DEK printers, mind you) Form-flex was a nightma

Yep Grid-Lok sucks for thin boards. We have it set up in 4 Dek Horizon 01s. Grid-Lok is actually strong enough to snap really thin boards. Other than that, the system has been great, especially if you have to do 10-12 changeovers per line per shif

Gel Flex works for Dek, just a slight modificaion. Works 100% better than any Grid type of system. We had missprints from Grid Lok and Form Flex - about every 5th or 6th board. Until we modified the Gels, we would take the time and some peelable s

JNJ made a nice tooling plate for MPM Hi-E series. Its intent was to replace MPM's "Universal Nest" with an alpha-numeric grid type system. I looked on their website, and they don't make it anymore. Worked great as long as you documented your setu

hi, we tried to introduce form-flex a few years back and it caused more problems than it fixed. Switched back to pins and no problems. It might have improved since but I would be reluctant to get them again unless I was given a 6 month trial!! aj
