Kurt Manufacturing has released the DX8 CrossOver vise, bringing their DX-series vise design to an 8-inch platform.

Featuring a one-piece body design with a cast stationary jaw—now standard on all Kurt single-station vises—the new Kurt DX8 CrossOver combines features of the Kurt D810 and Kurt 3800V vises into a single vise.

New stationary-jaw Kurt DX8, DX6 and DX4 vises were designed using finite element analysis, yielding 30 per cent less horizontal push-back deflection than previous DX models. Less vise-body deflection translates to more stability and long-term dimensional precision, for improved precision flatness, parallelism and repeatability.

The DX8 CrossOver vise features the same bed height and keyway to the stationary jaw face as the D810. The DX8 also features a redesigned nut with less weight, a new brush seal design, and a larger stronger bearing pack for more durability.

“We saw a demand for a high-quality yet affordable addition to the DX-family of vises in a larger 8-inch vise platform,” said Paul Carlsen, vice president of corporate marketing. “We’re always striving for improvement and the new DX design is better overall and offers our customers even more quality, value and repeatability than previous models.”
