CrossOver Vise, Pneumatic Zero-Point Clamping System and 5-Axis Holding Solutions

Kurt Workholding will feature CrossOver vises, pneumatic Zero-point clamping system and 19 5-axis machining solutions.

The Kurt DX4 CrossOver vise is designed for precision requirements of CNC production to toolroom applications. DX4 is interchangeable with Kurt's D40 vise with the same bed height and distance from keyway to stationary jaw. It combines multiple design features including the AngLock and Pull-Type features combined with a new 2-bolt stationary jaw. The DX4 CrossOver vise features a 6.5" jaw opening within the inside jaw position. A lighter and narrower vise body with a footprint of 4.962" wide x 12.50" long allows more vises on the machine table. The 80,000 PSI ductile iron vise body also provides chip evacuation straight through the body at the sides and end of vise to prevent chip build-up.

The Kurt pneumatic Zero-point clamping system operates on shop air available in most machine shops. The Zero-point system uses a form-fitting clamping design with self-locking clamp segments and tapered plug design, which creates a powerful, 3-surface contact and lock-down force pulling the plugs all the way into the cylinders. "The system design prevents vibration and tilting with the lock-down force not found in other zero point systems," said a company spokesperson. This is an important feature for 5-axis machining and horizontal CNCs which can induce an enormous amount of force on the holding system. The system uses 2,880 lbs. of pull-in force and 9,000 lbs. of retention force to securely hold the docking system in place.

Kurt offers a wide variety of 5-axis specific workholding, including dovetail designs, self-centering models, riser bases and special pallets. Many models have a choice of serrated jaws, carvable jaws or dovetail jaws. The lineup of MaxLock HP vises features enhanced anti-lift and AngLock design.

Visitors to the Kurt booth can also sign up for a drawing giveaway for one DX4 CrossOver vise each day of the show.
