Jergens’ hydraulic vise column features a swivel coupling designed to save time by eliminating the need to disconnect and reconnect the two hydraulic hoses as the column rotates. Each vise can be independently operated to quickly unload and load parts, and the compact rotary coupling does not interfere with tooling, the company says.
According to the company, hydraulic power provides a fast, repeatable action that ensures consistent clamping force with as much as 4,700 lbs of clamping capacity. The hydraulic vise column is available with 4" and 6" jaw sizes as well as three-sided or four-sided configurations. The stand-alone design can be retrofitted in the field.
