KIPP is a compact five axis clamping system from WTO, distributed in Canada by Mittmann.
The system is designed to clamp complex parts optimally, in modern five axis machining centres. The company says the design incorporates new clamping physics. Since the flow of clamping and positioning forces are separate, it puts little stress on the machine table, increasing clamping and positioning forces.
It offers what the company describes as the “highest clamping forces at the workpiece” and high ridigity. It is available with flat jaws for finishing, or jaws with interlocking pins for blanks or die cast material.
Clamping width is 20 to 320 mm, while clamping depth is 3 or 8 mm, and clamping height is 150 mm.
The system is designed for mounting on T slot machines or zero point clamping systems.
