Jergens’ vises for multi-axis machining, part of its Fixture Pro line of modular five-axis workholding, come in sizes ranging from 75 to 130 mm with a number of mounting options. The self-centering vises feature a low-profile design to provide greater access to the part being machined.

A pull-down jaw design actively reduces jaw lift caused by flex and raising up during the clamping process. The vises feature centering/re-centering adjustment and quick-change jaws that require no tools. These jaws are reversible and available as step jaws with serrated inserts, aluminum soft jaws, steel soft jaws and hardened step jaws.

Versatile mounting options are compatible with several Jergens platforms including Fixture Pro, Drop & Lock, Quick-Loc, Lang Quick Point and 5th Axis RockLock. Maximum clamping force is 3,600 lbs with 50 foot-pounds of torque. In combination with the full line of Quick Loc pallet systems, the vises are said to offer versatility and quick change-over on vertical, horizontal and multi-axis machining centers.
