Kurt’s VersatileLock vises ensure 0.0005" repeating accuracy in 20 models including hydraulic, manual and pneumatic actuation. The line also includes reverse models for part programming in the Y axis and easier part loading/unloading.

The combination of the Anglock and the pull-type VersatileLock vises creates an equalizing force between the moveable jaw and the one-piece vise body with integral stationary jaw, holding the workpiece rigidly. Solid, one-piece bodies made of ductile iron with machined steel components dampen cutter-induced and table vibrations to promote high cutting speeds and aggressive hogging operations.

Matched body height and stationary jaw-to-keyway dimensioning provides consistent vise ganging so that part-to-part tool movement is accurate and does not cause tool collision, the company says. These vises can be mounted on either side, on the base or back-to-back, making them flexible enough for a range of holding configurations.
