Seatless pressure clamping requires no preliminary machining of the rough work piece. Minimal compact gripping mechanism starts at 2.5mm or a higher 5mm version is also available to hold the part. The forces generated to clamp the work piece are divided between two axis lines resulting in minimal deformation of the part. The gripping jaws come in a variety of sizes and features with two interchangeable independent inserts. The different inserts types can be selected for rough non finished surface to finished surface applications. The Grip Vise is easily positioned on the FCS M16 50mm grid system, M12 25mm grid system, smaller pallet selections or raised on our body systems. Work pieces are easily clamped and centered within a position accuracy of +- .02mm.
