Five-Sided Machining Vises



SMW Autoblok will be highlighting the GENIUS and SINTEX precision vises for 5-axis machine tools. Both vises are equipped with SMW Autoblok's proprietary SinterGrip technology.

Instead of clamping a large surface area of the workpiece like some systems, the patented SinterGrip technology on the SINTEX precision vise requires only 3.5 mm of clamping surface. This clamping design allows for obstruction free processing of all five sides of a workpiece and minimizes deformation risk. A series of solid carbide serrated inserts grip the workpiece so securely that vibration is virtually non-existent. This stability allows for higher cutting speed and feedrates, which translates into more metal removed in less machining time.

The GENIUS precision vise features other unique technology in addition to the SinterGrip system. "Unlike traditional vises, it uses traction clamping to grip the workpiece. The movement of the jaws is not on a base, but on hardened and ground shafts. These generate clamping force (up to almost 30,000 ft.-lbs.) right at the part, where it is needed the most. The result is so stable that the GENIUS is the first vise designed for 5-axis machine tools that can be used for high precision milling operations," said a company spokesperson. Due to an expanding screw, GENIUS can clamp workpieces up to 200 mm in just one set-up. The GENIUS can be used with both flat and round workpieces.

The SINTEX self-centering 5-axis vise is designed for a high degree of accuracy on flat workpieces. Its compact size, large opening range (up to 150 mm), repeatable accuracy (+/- 0.01) and SinterGrip technology make it flexible. It comes in a variety of configurations.
