Kurt’s DX6 CrossOver vise is designed to achieve high workholding strength and performance where flatness and parallelism are critical. It is interchangeable with Kurt’s popular D688 vise with the same bed height and distance from keyway to stationary jaw.            

The DX6 uses a crossover of features from both the AngLock and pull-type designs from Kurt’s D688 and 3600V vises, combined with a new four-bolt stationary jaw. The AngLock design creates all-directional clamping alignment, and downward force reduces jaw deflection. The pull-type design reduces stress in the body and maintains flatness after assembly. Finally, the four-bolt design reduces stationary jaw deflection and alleviates body stress.

With enlarged holding capacity, the vise features a full 9" jaw opening within the inside jaw position. A lighter, narrower vise body with a footprint of 7.391" × 16.810" enables the use of more vises on the machine table. The vise body also provides chip evacuation straight through the body at the sides and end of vise to prevent chip buildup.

The vise locates on 40-mm, 50-mm and 2" grid patterns, and on a Kurt D50-4-SA swivel base. Through-the-body mounting and side clamping ears are also offered. Additional features include 80,000-psi ductile iron body, nut and movable jaw; a semi-hard steel screw; and a hardened vise bed and jaw plates. A GrooveLock jaw plate and workstop enable convenient part positioning while a larger and stronger bearing pack adds to vise life. A new brush seal design eases the removal or replacement in the nut.
