Precision Vises Enhance Clamping Accuracy, Repeatability
IMTS 2018: IndustryControlling LLC is introducing Dero’s RS ultra-precision vises for enhanced clamping accuracy and repeatability for grinding, EDM and measuring operations.
IndustryControlling LLC is introducing Dero’s RS ultra-precision vises. Made from hardened stainless steel, the vises enhance clamping accuracy and repeatability for grinding, EDM and measuring operations. According to the company, the vises guarantee centering accuracy of less than 0.0002" (0.005 mm) and clamping repeatability of less than 0.0004" (0.01 mm).
The Dero HRK vises are an additional line of centering vises distributed by the company. Made from hardened carbon steel, the vises are developed for use on multi-axis machining centers and have reversible jaws for an extended range of clamping. They are suitable for precise individual parts clamping and for clamping on palletizing systems.
As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.
These vise jaws use protruding, mechanical pins to repeatedly support workpieces either horizontally or at angles. They are said to allow quicker setups than conventional parallels.
Holding metal parts with magnets is migrating from surface grinding to broader application in general metalworking processes, especially milling. Advances in magnetic technology are causing many shops to re-evaluate how they hang on to workpieces. Here’s a look at how magnets may be a viable workholding solution for your shop.
