Self-Centering Vises Prevent Lift for Multi-Axis Machining

Jergens' new low profile, self-centering vises feature numerous jaw options and hold fast for the broad range of multi-axis machining.

Jergens Inc. has introduced a range of vises for multi-axis machining productivity. Available in 75 mm and 130 mm with a number of mounting options, the self-centering vises feature a low-profile design to allow for a greater part (machining) access.

Part of the Fixture Pro line of modular 5-axis workholding, the vises feature a pull-down jaw design to actively reduce jaw lift caused by flex and raising up during the clamping process. These vises have an easy centering / re-centering adjustment and quick-change jaws that require no tools. Jaws are reversible and available in step jaws with serrated inserts, aluminum soft jaws, steel soft jaws and hardened step jaws.

Versatile mounting options are compatible with several Jergens platforms including Fixture Pro, Drop & Lock, Quick-Loc, Lang Quick Point and 5th Axis RockLock. Maximum clamping force is 3,600 lbs. @ 50 ft-lbs. In combination with the full line of Quick Loc pallet systems, the new vise offers versatility and quick-change on vertical, horizontal and multi-axis machining centers.
