One Vise, Two Workpieces

The Hoffmann Group offers an additional module for its GARANT Xpent 5-axis vise. This center jaw, which can be optionally fitted to the base rail, has now made it possible to clamp two workpieces with just one vise, and to process these in a single operation. This means clamping strategies that are more efficient can be implemented, leading to a measurable increase in productivity.

The GARANT Xpent is based on a modular design concept. Clamping modules, base rails and spindles can be individually combined, and the convex clamping modules can be turned 180°. The center jaw offers another bonus in terms of flexibility and is immediately available as an accessory for sizes 0 to 1S and will soon be available in sizes 1 and 2. The existing range of attachment rails, each with two clamping stages, is fully compatible with the new center jaw.

The GARANT Xpent has a clamping force of up to 40 kN at a torque of 90 Nm and is available in three different heights and two widths. Base rails are available in lengths of 360 to 1,050 mm. The 1S size was specially developed for 3- and 5-axis machines with small spindle gear boxes.
