Click image to enlargeA new low profile five axis clamping system from KIPP sold through Mittman Inc., Reguad, QC, provides extra part clearance for applications requiring continuous five axis cutting motion e.g. complex pockets, sculptured and contoured surfaces,  intricate 3D features all with repeatable high precision accuracy.

With a clamping force up to 9000 lb (40kN) for obstruction-free, high speed machining in all axes, this vice is a “must have accessory” for 5-axis machining centres.
Where conventional work holding limits a 5-axis machining center to just 3-axis operation, this clamping system extends the operating range of most machining centres to full output potential.
