Kurt Motorized Air Vises Improve Clamping Repeatability
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
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.
The maker of racing engine components produces parts that have many permutations within each product line. Here is how Jesel sets up work for cost-effective, responsive machining.
Take a look at some of the options, and find out how some shops make their decisions.
Modular fixturing makes sense for this manufacturer, whether it's machining one- or two-of-a-kind parts for its custom machine tools or larger quantities for its contract machining business.
