Gerardi’s new generation of jaws have interchangeable jaw plates and are compatible with standard vise bases and blocking devices. The company attributes the capability of quickly replacing the jaw plates to the pin/spring system and ground prismatic grooves, which enable guided pull-down action while promoting accurate workpiece repositioning.


Ground holes present on the fixed jaw (50-mm pitch) allow vertical positioning on grid pallet, while vertical positioning on grooved pallet can be accomplished because of the ground keys present on the back of the fixed jaw. To create a more rigid system, two vises can be linked back-to-back, the company says.


A range of jaw plates, including soft, smooth, serrated, step, 30-degree to 45- degree angle step, prismatic, those with lateral reference step and round, are available.
