Vices offer faster processing

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Kurt's two-station vices, the HD and HDL series, provide options for faster setups, larger workholding capacity, greater flexibility and precision to handle a range of part configurations. They are suitable for clamping parts of the same size or dissimilar size and can perform first and secondary operations simultaneously.

The HD and HDL vices feature quick-change jaws and fewer components for faster job changeovers. The jaw resets and self-aligns quickly without special tools and its spring preloaded design offers fast and easy loading of parts.

The vices are said to deliver up to 7,460lbs of clamping force at 70lbs of torque. They are designed on an 80,000PSI ductile iron body with precision machined steel components and have a full 4in opening in each station using Kurt's standard hard jaw system. The manual model can be converted to hydraulic operation by using a simple conversion kit.

The Kurt HD and HDL series are also available in Cluster Tower models that are suited for horizontal or vertical machining centres with indexable tables. These towers achieve workpiece immobility while damping cutter induced vibration.
