Kurt motorized air vises are built to provide consistent preset clamping force and programmability of the vise opening. The vises are able to integrate with automation equipment such as in robotic cells. They include all air motor components, sensors for predetermined jaw stop, push-to-connect air fittings and sine keys for table mounting.

The air motor option is said to be available on most Kurt vises, including the DX6, most single- and double-station vises ranging from 4" to 8", and smaller vise models such as the SCMX420. Additional options are available for adding encoders for programmability or an optional screw with double start threads to increase stroke speed.
