Exact & symmetrical
The main body is made of black anodised aluminium and has round 12 mm H6 guide rails made of hardened steel. With a turning handle and the 3-fold ball bearing mounted drive spindle made of steel with M10 x 1 mm fine thread, the two parallel mounted movable jaws are mechanically moved exactly and symmetrically towards or away from the centre.
Furthermore, the clamping jaws of the CNC-STEP centring vice are provided with a laser engraved scale, which facilitates the positioning of the workpiece. Thus, serial workpieces can be aligned precisely at the same place for engraving or milling.
Self-Centring vice for perfect clamping
Because this vice is self-centring, the workpieces are always automatically clamped centrally on it. This is therefore ideal for applications where the workpiece zero point is in the middle.
Furthermore, due to its overall length, our centring vice achieves an optimal clamping ratio and thus leads to a perfect clamping result.
Excellent for circuit board production
Due to its nature, the centring vice or engraving vice is excellent for clamping flat material. This means that it can be used, for example, for circuit board production.
For insulation milling, the flat workpieces can be machined most easily by fixing them on a centring vice or clamping them on a vacuum table.
What benefits do optional clamping jaws offer?
The centring vice has robust and symmetrically moving clamping jaws. These are smooth and do not have a prism. Also, there are threaded holes on the jaws, which you can use to fix additional top jaws.
In our assortment, two different variants of top jaws are optionally available. On the one hand the smooth vice jaws with dimensions of 140 x 35 x 10 mm and on the other, jaws with a ground prism and identical dimensions.
By extending the range with these optional top jaws, the supporting surface increases, so that even higher workpieces can be placed and processed safely.
The smaller holes on the jaws are also ideal for inserting dowel pins, which you can use to fix higher or round objects, for example. Besides, the jaws can also be rotated and are therefore versatile.
The prism-ground jaws, for example, also offer the option of clamping round workpieces or even unusual shapes.
