New Jergens self-centering vises prevent lift for multi-axis machining


Jergens Inc. has introduced a new range of vises for multi-axis machining productivity. The self-centering vises feature a low-profile design for access.

Available in 75mm and 130mm with a number of mounting options, the self-centering vises are designed to feature allow for a greater part (machining) access.

Part of the Fixture Pro® line of modular five-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.
