Repeatability Made Easy with Jergens 130mm Double-Acting Hydraulic Vise

Achieving consistent workholding pressure is an art form for the skilled operator, and it’s an important step to ensuring that parts are locked down securely and positioned exactly for the next operation. Mechanical vises leave the door open for a higher degree of variation, whereas hydraulic vises repeat with very high accuracy. Additionally, they are fast and easy to operate – both of which contribute to faster overall cycle times. Take for example Jergens 130mm double-acting hydraulic vise – it provides high holding forces, quick clamping and repeatability to improve speed and part tolerance. To handle the many options of CNC machining, this vise comes standard with multiple mounting patterns, different jaw options and easy access to plumbing and maintenance ports. 
New Positioning and Clamping Additions Expand Jergens OK-Vise® Multi-Rail System Capability

Many machining operations benefit from multiple part setups, right? Maximize machine uptime, capacity and capability. Size, shape and complexity of surfaces to be machined usually dictate what’s possible. So does the total machining envelope that the CNC will allow. Jergens has an answer to how to best position and clamp the highest number of parts while staying clear of tool paths and spindle movements – sound OK?
