New Kurt DoveLock(TM) Dove Tail Vise Designed for Aggressive 5 Axis Machining Operations
Minneapolis, Minnesota – Kurt’s new DoveLock™ vise is the 5 axis workholding solution for the most advanced aggressive machining operations. It provides up to 4,000 lbs of precision clamping force, holding parts without distorting the workpiece while providing access to 5 surfaces of the workpiece.
Designed and built from pre-hardened 4140 steel, the DoveLock™ vise has Kurt’s proven workholding rigidity. When under high machining pressure, deflection and clamp creep is minimized by the DoveLock™ unique design. Three features make this possible: the clamping screw is located at the top of the clamping envelope, the moveable jaw slide is retained within the stationary jaw, and machined dove tail jaws for added grip.
For fast positioning in the vise jaws, the DoveLock™ vise features a unique, one-half inch movable jaw stroke. This allows precise raw stock clamping with less material preparation. Another nice feature is an embedded locating pin that maintains part location accuracy when applying side load pressure.
To elevate parts further off the machine table, an optional riser base is available. The robust riser provides 1.250” inches of additional elevation and can be stacked in multiples to achieve the desired height.
DoveLock™ vise specifications are: 2.00 jaw width, maximum jaw opening 1.688 inch, jaw height 0.125 inch, overall stroke .500 inch, vise height 2.500 inch, base height 1.250 inch, base diameter 4.47 inch, weight 8 lbs.
The new Kurt DoveLock™ vise has a Lifetime Iron Clad Warranty and is part of a complete family of five axis workholding products from Kurt.
