Kurt will show its lineup of vises for five-axis, high-precision production machining, including its DX6 CrossOver vise. The DX6 has the same bed height and distance from keyway to stationary jaw as the company’s D688 vise, making them interchangeable. Design attributes include the AngLock and pull-type features combined with a four-bolt stationary jaw. The vise also features a full 9" jaw opening within the inside jaw position. A light, narrow 7.39" × 16.810" body enables more vises on the machine table. The 80,000-psi, ductile iron body also provides chip evacuation straight through the sides and end of the vise to prevent chip build-up.
