Clamping Vise suits raw and finished part machining.

October 20, 2016

As single-acting clamping vise with fixed jaw, KONTEC KSC-F achieves high clamping forces at low torque. Actuation is possible via standard hexagon connection using socket wrench, extension, or torque wrench. Eliminating need for re-tightening with torque wrench, 160° Quick Clamp force intensifier enables workpieces to be clamped in <1 sec and vise to be safely locked. Clamping force depends on torque, and clamping range depends on jaws being used. Read More
