New Mini Valve Offers Time Saving Convenience for Single-Acting Vises and Air Mechanisms

Racine, Wisconsin - January 15, 2003 The new #36 Mini Valve recently introduced by Heinrich Company offers timesaving convenience for single-acting vises and air mechanisms. Designed to attach directly to the vise, the #36 Mini Valve saves space on the machine table. Its compact size and mounting location make it easier to operate and there are fewer parts for faster set-up and teardown.

For added convenience, the inlet and exhaust ports are interchangeable so the air hose can be connected to either side of the valve. The easy-to-use hand lever is right at your fingertips and its unique, over-center snap action, gives quick, sure response. Since the lever is detented in both positions, the operator does not have to hold the lever in either direction.

The #36 Mini Valve is designed to work with the Heinrich single-acting vises (#33, #44) and air operated cross-hole drill jigs (#AR-305, #AR-605, # AR-905) or any single acting air mechanism. Available as a replacement for the Heinrich 3-way foot-treadle valve or 3-way hand valve, this Heinrich Mini Valve is sold complete with all fittings needed to replace either the foot or hand valve on existing and new units.

Heinrich Company has been making special workholding tools for over 75 years. Their products include quick-acting screwless vises, single and double-acting air vises, self-centering vises, cross-hole drill jigs, 5C air collet fixtures and special metal-cutting tools.
