As the company reports, thanks to its own expanding screw, the vise can clamp the workpieces up to 200 mm with just one set-up, and unlike traditional vises, it clamps the workpieces by means of traction clamping. It is claimed to be the first vise designed for five-axis machine tools that can also be used for high-precision milling operations as well. One of the main advantages of the device is seen in its clamping force of up to 40 kN, which is generated precisely where it is needed. The Italian exhibitors add that the movement of the jaws is not on a base but on hardened and grinded shafts, which allows a more quick and accurate positioning on the same axis with the center of the machine tool pallet and ensures great flexibility and a high cost saving.
