AME says its dovetail vise clamping component is useful for a variety of applications and industries, especially aerospace aluminum milling applications. Precision bushing holes are designed for quick and easy location of the vise, the company says. Other features include ½"-13 SHCS and precision dowel screws, which secure the vise on a 2" grid system; a 15-degree dovetail angle that holds pre-machined parts securely during machining operations; and a maximum part width of 4" or 5". The vise is available in 5", 8", 12", 16" or 24" lengths with as many as 12 jaws, depending on the length. Metric locating and mounting hole versions are available on request.
