The company’s new concentric vises are for use in machining centers, on machine tools, in special jigs and fixtures, and on final processing machines.
These self-centering vises position and clamp workpieces on a symmetrical axis, allowing for any contours, and have a high clamping repeatability of ±0.01 mm.
The steel vises, which come in three sizes, can be used in any mounting position and provide a constant length and a large clamping range, using application-specific jaws. The vise's spindle area is protected from dirt, chips and coolant, according to the company.
