Repeatability Made Easy
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.
Cut Down On Your Travel Time
Jergens’ 130mm hydraulic vise offers users the ability to position the jaws just outside of the dimension of the workpiece to minimize travel when clamping. This, in combination with the speed of hydraulic workholding, reduces clamping and unclamping operations to about one second. The ease of use of these double-acting vises allows users to repeat these time-saving operations, adding up to measurable machine uptime and productivity increases, especially for high mix, low volume manufacturers.
Match Your Jaws To The Part
Quick-change soft jaw sets, available in high strength aluminum (blue anodize finish) or low carbon steel (black oxide finish), extend the range of holding options, matching the need that the part presents. Jaw inserts, including a case-hardened version, are also part of the offering and provide extra secure holding making them well suited for first-pass operations in raw materials.
Plug N Play
Only low operating pressures are needed to actuate the vise, allowing it to perform optimally directly off of machine hydraulics. Connect via the industry-standard 96mm mounting pattern (Quick-Loc™) or Jergens Fixture Pro QLS, both are included in every vise. The 130 mm vise is versatile and well-suited for multiple CNC machining applications including vertical, horizontal, rotary, 5-axis, and robotic setups. A steel body and internal hardened components offer greater performance and enhanced durability, even in harsh environments.
Machine Needs A Boost?
Jergens hydraulic pump kits provide the power, and come with everything required to hook up and control your vise including the compact pump – mounted horizontally or vertically – and a manual or solenoid zero leak valve to control the clamping action. Clamping force can be adjusted with the filter/regulator, also included. These kits are designed for powering single vise setups, however, multiple vise applications are also possible.
