According to the company, the vise jaws grip just 3.5 mm of material to facilitate the five-axis machining of high-value workpieces with minimal waste material. As a result, the jaws allow access for machining with short cutting tools for high-rate metal removal and high accuracy in a single setup. The system therefore saves money for raw materials and improves the performance of the machine tool since higher cutting speed and a higher feed rate is said to mean a larger volume of metal removed and therefore less time needed to machine the workpiece. As the manufacturers also point out, the market requires a safe clamping solution that also avoids any deformation of the workpiece itself. The jaws use serrated solid carbide inserts of the type ISO P30:P35 and coated with the PVD method.
Safe clamping solution with small clamping surface
The new Sintergrip has been designed to meet the current demand for clamping a workpiece over a very few millimeters so that the workpiece can be completely machined in a single operation.
