Press Release Summary:
Optimized for workholding strength and performance where flatness and parallelism are critical, DX6™ CrossOver™ occupies 16.810 x 7.391 in. footprint and features full 9 in. jaw opening within inside jaw position. AngLockÂ® design creates all-directional clamping alignment, and downward force reduces jaw deflection. While pull-type design reduces stress in body and maintains flatness after assembly, 4-bolt stationary jaw design reduces deflection and alleviates body stress.

Announcing The Kurt DX6(TM) CrossOver(TM) Vise - Kurt's Newest Workholding Breakthrough Technology
Minneapolis, Minnesota: Kurt’s all-new DX6™ CrossOver™ vise achieves new levels in workholding strength and performance where flatness and parallelism are critical. The DX6™ CrossOver™ vise is designed for the precision requirements of CNC production to toolroom applications. DX6™ is interchangeable with Kurt’s popular D688 vise with the same bed height and distance from keyway to stationary jaw.
The DX6™ CrossOver™ vise uses a crossover of features from both the AngLock® and Pull-Type designs from Kurt’s all popular D688 and 3600V vises, combined with a new 4-bolt stationary jaw creating an ultra unique strategy for a better vise. When combined, the resulting combination of forces are: (1) AngLock® design creates all-directional clamping alignment and downward force reduces jaw deflection (2) Pull-type design reduces stress in the body and maintains flatness after assembly (3) 4 bolt design reduces stationary jaw deflection and alleviates body stress.
With enlarged holding capacity, the DX6™ CrossOver™ vise features a full 9-inch jaw opening within the inside jaw position. A lighter and narrower vise body with a footprint of 7.391” wide x 16.810” long allows more vises on the machine table. The vise body also provides chip evacuation straight through the body at sides and end of vise to prevent chip build-up.
Additional DX6™ CrossOver™ vise features include: 80,000psi ductile iron body, nut and movable jaw, a semi-hard steel screw and a hardened vise bed and jaw plates. Mounting is easy with many options from through the body, side clamping ears, locates on 40mm, 50mm, 2” grid patterns and on a Kurt D50-4-SA swivel base. A GrooveLock® jaw plate and workstop are included for convenient part positioning. Larger and stronger bearing pack adds to longer life. New brush seal design for easier removal or replacement in the nut.
“The DX6™ CrossOver™ vise combines all of the great features of the world-renowned Kurt Anglock® and Pull-Type vises along with the latest, state-of-the-art features and Lifetime Iron Clad warranty,” reports Steve Kane, global sales and marketing manager for Kurt Industrial Products. The DX6™ CrossOver™ is better in every way you measure a vise.”
