Kurt Workholding has launched the Kurt TriLock product line, featuring 3-in-1 vise design and integrated quick-change dovetail jaws from newly acquired Carvesmart.
The six-inch Kurt TriLock vises quickly convert between three vise sizes and double-station or single-station configurations. Carvesmart dovetail jaws come standard. Preinstalled hardened steel jaw plates can quickly convert to Carvesmart machinable aluminum jaw extrusions or a wide variety of other Carvesmart jaw plate options for custom part holding and high-variability production work.
“The new TriLock vise is a leap forward in vise functionality for Kurt’s customers,” said Jeff Lenz, Executive Vice President of Proprietary Products at Kurt Manufacturing. “A shop can purchase a single TriLock vise, keep an inventory of Carvesmart machinable jaw extrusions, and quickly change between multiple complex part shapes on multiple jobs.”
TriLock vises with Carvesmart jaws are on sale now with preinstalled hard jaws and a set of six-inch extruded machinable aluminum jaws. Additional jaw extrusions are available with five different profile options in precut four-, six- and eight-inch widths. Jaw extrusions are compatible with the TriLock vise’s dovetail movable jaws and with other Carvesmart master jaw kits currently in the marketplace (at right). 31″ and 94″ extrusions are also available for customers.
TL6CSP TriLock Vises are designed to quickly convert between a standard six-inch double-station vise, a single-station vise and a large single station vise, and can hold parts as large as eleven inches.
Kurt recently announced the acquisition of Bellatex Industries LLC, owner of Carvesmart. In the asset acquisition, Kurt acquired all Carvesmart patents and inventory. Kurt is selling the Carvesmart dovetail jaw system directly on its website.
