Jergens Inc.’s Multi-Rail solutions for its OK Vise low-profile modular clamping include a number of parallels and side guides for positioning, as well as clamp and stop modules to hold workpieces securely.
T Slot, magnetic (including a tall version) and snap-in parallels assist in the positioning of a workpiece on the RM rail, avoiding contact with the serrations through a raised datum surface. Choose from T-nut, magnetic mount or snap-in for even faster installation. Mechanical and magnetic side guides are mounted either to the tapped holes in the side of the rail or via the strong magnet for a wide range adjustment. Users can adjust each side guide for a specific product while keeping the guide ready for the next production batch.
New B and D Series clamp modules feature a standard clamp combined with a riser plate (B Series only), socket head cap screw, and t-nut, as well as a choice of jaw faces – smooth, serrated, mixed and mounting jaw. Stop modules hold fast against clamping pressure and are available in several styles including smooth, serrated, knife, V-stops – both vertical and horizontal.
In total, these workholding innovations perform with high repeatability on Jergens OK Vise Multi-Rail system, a unique general-purpose workholding solution. Several advantages of this system include near-endless fixture configurations, holding and machining challenging workpieces both large and small including multiples clamped simultaneously, and the ability to mount to the Jergens QLS Grid System.
