Minneapolis, Minnesota: Kurt Manufacturing Company announces availability of its new zero-point workholding systems in heavy duty, automatic, standard and custom models. Designed to integrate with new or existing workholding devices such as Kurt vises and fixtures, these VB DockLock systems provide fast, ultra accurate setup on machining centers. They completely eliminate operator setup errors.

With repeatable positioning accuracy to ± 0.0002 inch on typical part runs, the VB DockLock system ensures high quality part finishes, no scrap parts, and substantial setup time savings. For example, a typical workholding setup change usually requiring 20 minutes is done in less than 2 minutes with the VB DockLock.

Consisting of a patented hydraulic actuated locking cylinder, the system instantly aligns and locks the vise or fixture with a clamp down force of 2800 lbs per locking cylinder (12,456 newtons) and with a retention force of 9000 lbs per locking cylinder (40,033 newtons). Once in place, the workholding remains immobile. A uniquely designed collet connection dampens vibration tendencies in the workholding setup, an important design feature.

The VB DockLock allows the user to locate or remove the workholding from a machine, or move it offline or to another machine and/or back again in just seconds with zero-point positioning accuracy every time. Designed for all model horizontal and vertical machining centers, the VB DockLock is now available in standard, automatic, heavy duty and custom models.

Widely used throughout Europe, VB DockLock is manufactured to the highest Swiss standards. It is available in North America exclusively from Kurt Manufacturing Company.
