Roemheld has just launched a new fixed jaw vice designed to offer a fast ROI for 5-Axis applications across a wide range of industries.
The innovative KC100 5-Axis vice system offers a universal clamping solution for 5-axis machines and pallet systems and enables 6th side machining with minimum set-up costs. As well as allowing for optimum positioning of the component on the table and reducing tooling costs, the vice also reduces material wastage thanks to its ability to grip on only 3mm with a clamping force of up to 25kN. These are key considerations for contractors juggling high material costs with the need to maximise productivity and competitiveness.
The compact design of the KC100 5-Axis vice from Roemheld also ensures all-round accessibility and collision-free workpiece pathways. The all-steel construction makes it sturdy and robust enough for the heaviest milling operations.
The KC100 has a 100mm jaw width and extensive clamping capacity of between 6mm and 204mm. It has been designed to offer an extremely flexible 5-Axis vice system that is suitable for both raw parts and finished component clamping as the jaw inserts can simply be changed from serrated to smooth.
