Double acting clamping vises
- January 30, 2019
Schunk is expanding its KONTEC KSC-D series of double clamping vises.
A year after launch, the line is now available in seven body lengths: 320 mm (12.6 in.), 390 mm (15.35 in.), 460 mm (18.11 in.), 530 mm (20.86 in.), 600 mm (23.62 in.), 670 mm (26.38 in.), and 740 mm (29.13 in.). In size 80, the length of 300 mm (11.8 in.) is standardized.
Schunk KONTEC KSC-D double clamping vises are especially designed for demanding continuous operation in automated machine tools with workpiece storage. An induction hardened base body, long jaw guidance, fitted slides, case hardened chuck jaws and a fully encapsulated drive precision, maximum wear resistance and minimum cleaning effort. Completely nickel-plated, the vise is protected against corrosion for continuous use in pallet systems or on tombstones.
By means of a third hand function, two workpieces can be inserted next to each other, fixed and then are clamped together safely. Due to the trapezoidal threads, high clamping forces can be achieved with little manual effort. As a part of the Schunk modular system for workpiece clamping, the clamping force blocks offer further advantages: the clamping pins of the quick change pallet system Schunk VERO-S without adapter plate are directly connectable into the base body of the vise with screws. The clamping force blocks can also be fitted with a wide variety of chuck jaws from the Schunk standard chuck jaw program.
