Workholding Solutions and Dedicated Custom Capability

New Jergens products for IMTS 2022 include (l-r) heavy duty vise, enhanced Quick-Loc pallet system, cast iron columns, a new washdown tool and ZPS modules.

Jergens has announced several new workholding products that will be on display and demonstrated at this year's IMTS.

First among them will be additions to the company's tooling columns made in the USA and constructed of single piece cast iron for maximum rigidity. These columns open horizontal machining potential and are a solid basis for custom workholding to suit specific customer needs. Several new styles include square, cross and rectangular. Additionally, three mounting options are available-center pin, edge and ZPS-and the new columns are fully customizable.

A second product introduction is Jergens' new 5 Inch Heavy Duty Machine Vise. "Made of stress relieved ductile iron and flame hardened, the vise provides long usable life and predictable performance," said a company spokesperson." They are also more easily moved and relocated by the operator due to the relatively small size and weight, but also ensure secure part holding and tight tolerances from general machining to high production. Additions include hardened jaw plates and a Ball Lock fixture plate quick-change kit. The vise is also made in the USA.

A third development is with the company's Quick-Loc pallet system. The new Quick-Loc 2, which will replace the existing product line, features an improved design that engages pull studs inside the receiver. QL2 has a hardened coating for long life and durability. The range is compatible with all existing top tooling. Quick-Loc pallet systems are used for fixturing on horizontal, vertical and rotary operations. These low-profile adapters and pallets offer repeatability of 0.0003" and provide clamping forces of nearly 14,000 lbs.

Also included in these expansions are two new ZPS installation choices for compact, light duty applications. SP140, the smallest clamping module on the market, and K02 pull studs utilize pneumatics and a mechanical spring in a small package. The combination offers quick-change solutions for vise or gripper jaws, electronic component manufacturing, packaging machines, medical technology and automation.

Jergens now offers a washdown tool. This simple device provides 360° of spray using coolant flow to reduce machine cleanup time after a cycle. The ball cleaner washes chips off exposed surfaces, cleaning the machine at scheduled intervals, which helps support long machining cycles and lights-out machining periods when no operator is present. The washdown tool goes into the tool changer just like any other tool.

Another key area of focus is the company's growing Custom Design and Build team. Through it, Jergens offers customer-specific solutions that are component driven and engineered for maximum machining access and minimum cycle time. "These unique workholding solutions are supported by decades-long experienced individuals and dedicated facilities. The company's proven processes ensure clear communication and short lead times," said the spokesperson

The full range of Jergens' core products-including Ball-Lock, ZPS, Quick-Loc, Fixture Pro and OK-Vise-will be on display throughout the exhibit.
