Minneapolis, Minnesota: Machining center productivity goes up when using these new Kurt High Density Long (HDL) Vises with two clamping stations. Available in 4 and 6 inch capacities and in manual and hydraulic models, they provide an ideal option for increasing machining center output using existing machining centers.

The 4 inch capacity HDLM4 model is ideal for machining smaller parts on smaller machining centers such as precise medical device and electronic parts. The 6 inch capacity HDLM6 model is ideal for machining larger parts on larger machining centers such as precision aerospace and automation components. Both size vises provide repeatable clamping in two clamping stations to 0.0002 inch.

Designed on an 80,000 PSI ductile iron body with precision machined steel components, these new HDL vises are extremely rigid delivering up to 6,316 lbs. of clamping force at 70 lbs. of torque. Both size vises provide strength, rigidity and long term accuracy while absorbing machining vibration. Both feature two clamping stations with a full 3 inch or 4 inch opening in each station using Kurt's standard hard jaw system.

Additional features of the HDL manual model include: adjustable pre-load design minimizes pre-load range thus reducing the turns of the handle to open or close the vise; holding block allows clamping same or dissimilar sized parts and provides pre-loading ability in the front or back jaw; maximizes the number of parts in the work envelope and multiple part workholding provides better spindle utilization, reduced tool change time and reduced machine travel from part to part.

The HDL manual model vises easily convert to hydraulic operation using a simple conversion kit.

"These new HDL 4 and 6 inch vises are a very economical option for increasing existing machining center productivity during these difficult economic times," reports Steve Kane, Kurt sales manager. "With two clamping stations, machinable jaw options and compact design, these vises have broad flexibility that makes possible maximum density workholding across a full range of machining centers."

Like all Kurt vise products, these new HDL vises are covered by Kurt's Iron Clad Lifetime Warranty.

In addition to standard vises and accessories, Kurt provides integrated custom engineered workholding, custom gaging and automation integration systems for automated manufacturing. Custom workholding, gaging and robotic integration applications are designed around a customer's requirements with systems available for many industries including automotive, medical and aerospace applications.
