Press release date: October 31, 2012

Minneapolis, Minnesota: Kurt’s D688 vise has an 8.8 inch jaw opening and repeatability to within 0.001 inch. It produces up to 7,968 lbs. clamping force with just 80 ft. lbs. input torque.

Designed for the high performance requirements of the latest machining centers, the D688 meets the needs of today’s highly skilled and demanding machinists, reports Steve Kane, Global Sales and Marketing Manager for Kurt Industrial Products. “Kurt was the first to design the original Anglock vise which helped usher in the CNC machining era. That trend continues with Kurt being first with many workholding innovations including this newest D688 model coupled with its Lifetime Warranty.”

Designed with high precision roller bearings and alloy steel screw mechanism (competitor models use less efficient ball bearings), D688 vises distribute clamping force evenly and precisely across the full jaw surface. The AnglockŪ design in the movable jaw (patented by Kurt) further reduces jaw lift. Providing overall vise rigidity while absorbing machining vibration, Kurt D688 vises have porosity-free, 80,000-PSI ductile iron bodies.

Additional features include removable, hardened jaw plates, ergonomically designed vise handle, and GrooveLockŪ workstops that store easily in the vise body.

The D688 vise is designed for use on the latest machine tools including machining centers and knee-type mills. The D688 is ideal for all types of machining operations including precision boring, tapping, drilling and finishing with high accuracy on most part configurations. The D688 vise is the only vise of its type made in the USA.
