Jergens has made additions to OK Vise range of compact, low-profile edge clamps. Among them are Multi-Rail (MR), Knife Grip and Hydraulic Kits. 

Multi-Rail is the new general-purpose, multi-configurable, modular workholding system capable of holding challenging workpieces, small and large, and often multiple in the same location. Multi-Rail is also compatible to mount to the Jergens QLS grid system, a lightweight 2-piece aluminum column that opens up further machining opportunities including connections with both Fixture Pro and Ball Lock.

Knife Grip includes compact, low-profile edge clamps aimed at improving production and supporting difficult applications. The jaws feature serrated teeth that penetrate into softer materials and prevent part movement due to the load imposed by machining forces.

Hydraulic actuation kits pair the OK Vise clamping system with the advantages of hydraulic workholding. Repeatable clamping forces and improved ergonomics are two key benefits for high-production applications. The clamps are small in size yet provide clamping force ranging to 150 kN.
