The Schunk Kontec KSC clamping vises are made for raw and finished part machining.

Schunk’s Kontec KSC clamping vises are made for machining raw and finished parts, combining high clamping forces and short setup times. The KSC-F single-acting clamping vise, designed for automated machine loading, has a fixed jaw, with quick adjustment of the clamping range, the company says. A flat design and light weight are said to make the vise ideal for conditions requiring unattended workpiece handling on pallet systems.

The three sizes — KSC-F 80, KSC-F 125 and KSC-F 160 — are designed for  pallet sizes of 320 × 320 mm, 400 × 400 mm and 500 × 500 mm, respectively. Because of the 160-degree quick-clamping feature, workpieces can be clamped with a torque wrench, safely locking the vise. Clamping by tension means that the bending load at the base body is minimized, making the vises suitable for use with the Vero-S quick-change pallet system. With reversible jaws, the vise covers clamping ranges between 0 and 434 mm, depending on the unit size.

The vise is also available in with a base body length of 280 mm and with clamping forces ranging to 50 kN with encapsulated drive.
