Dovetail Vises Provide Five-Sided Access to Workpiece
Kurt’s new DoveLock dovetail vises are designed for high clamping strength and five-sided access to the workpiece in five-axis, four-axis and palletized CNC machining systems.
New Workholding Setup, Machining Orientation Enable Lights-Out Production
For Idex Health and Science, manufacturing glass components was time-consuming on a VMC. Switching to an HMC with a Cluster Tower vise with DoveLock jaws from Kurt Manufacturing enabled more stable, lights-out machining.
Vise Achieves Flatness, Parallelism Requirements
Kurt’s DX6 CrossOver vise is designed to achieve high workholding strength and performance where flatness and parallelism are critical.
Vise Reduces Setup Time for Secondary Operations
The Kurt SideWinder vise provides vertical workholding without interfering with an existing host vise or the spindle.
Jaw Platform Enables Fast, Accurate Vise Jaw Change
Kurt Manufacturing’s DoveLock jaw setup enables one-minute vise jaw changes with repeatable accuracy of ±0.001".
Vises Provide Consistent Ganging for Part-to-Part Tool Movement
Kurt’s VersatileLock vises ensure 0.0005" repeating accuracy in 20 models including hydraulic, manual and pneumatic actuation.
Self-Centering Vises Ensure Workpiece Stability
Kurt’s AngLock vise line comprises more than 60 models in 2.5", 4", 6", 8" and 10" jaw widths with many available in manual and hydraulic actuation.
Line of Workholding Products Expanded
Kurt will feature its DT20 Dovetail vise designed for aggressive five-axis machining.
New Jaws Speed Change-Over for Short-Run Jobs
This shop found that a quick-change jaw system reduced 80-minute change-over times to just 8 minutes.
Vise within a Vise System Enables Economical Five-Axis Machining
A unique vise-within-a-vise system using Kurt workholding enables Peterson Machining Inc. to cost effectively use five-axis manufacturing for complex parts.
Pencil Probe Provides LDVT Measurement with High Accuracy
The KurtSmart Probe from the Kurt Industrial Products Division combines the advantages of a linear variable differential transducer (LDVT) with the accuracy of a linear scale in a more affordable package, according to the company.
Pull-Type Vise Minimizes Jaw Deflection
Kurt Workholding’s HD690 pull-type vise features a 9" jaw opening for clamping larger workpieces with minimal stationary jaw deflection.
Hydraulic Clamping Systems for High-Production Machining
Kurt’s hydraulic clamping systems are designed for faster, more accurate workpiece clamping.
Five-Axis Workholding Options Accommodate Range of Workpieces
Kurt offers a selection of vise configurations and options designed for five-axis machining in industries such as medical, oilfield, aerospace, and mold and die.
Vise Enables Second Operation Machining
Kurt’s SideWinder vise mounts to the back of the company’s industry-standard 6" vises to provide vertical workholding for second-operation machining in a single setup. Vise Enables Second Operation Machining
Vise Line Reduces Stress Under Load
Kurt’s pull-type HD690 vise line is available in standard and reverse jaw models, and in manual and hydraulic versions.
Workholding System Reduces Setup Time
Kurt’s DockLock zero-point workholding system is designed for quick alignment and setup of parts on horizontal and vertical machining centers.
Flexible Fixturing Furnishes Faster Setups
Replacing dedicated fixtures with a system incorporating custom jaws from Kurt Manufacturing has reduced setup time and freed capacity at this manufacturer of hydraulic snowplow equipment.
Kurt Donates Vises to “Workshops for Warriors”
The program provides machining training to veterans.
Hydraulic Pump for Vises, Cluster Towers, Swing Clamps
The 5,000-psi air hydraulic pump from Kurt Workholding is designed to provide constant hydraulic pressure for precision clamping applications.
