Kurt self-centering vises can improve machining center productivity by positioning and clamping workpieces precisely and quickly on a defined symmetrical axis. Available in two sizes, the Kurt units can be used in any mounting position and provide a large clamping range for odd-sized workpieces. For maximum productivity, they quickly and easily align in a series on a machine work table, claims the company. Centering accuracy for the vises from minimum to maximum opening is 0.0006 in (0.015 mm) with 0.0002 in (0.005 mm) repeatability. Both movable jaws are designed with Anglock, a pull-type jaw clamping design that minimizes jaw deflection. Kurt self-centering vises feature ductile iron bodies with precision-machined steel components, which is important to machinists who want rugged strength, extra part-holding rigidity, and long-term accuracy.
