Jergens Inc. introduces its 125mm vise and 96mm Drop & Lock pallet as a universal quick-change solution. The two work together on vertical and horizontal machining centers, and significantly open up possibilities on 5-axis and multiple-axis machining centers for increased machining access and the quick changeover of both top tooling and machineable parts.
The new 125mm multi-axis, low-profile, self-centering vise features a compact footprint for broad use on quick-change pallets systems. The vise is constructed from 4100 series steel and precision ground to ensure accuracy and repeatability. With the addition of pull studs, this vise is compatible with products like the Quick-Point system. When used with the new 96mm Drop & Lock pallet, the vise is completely compatible with all Jergens 5-Axis Fixture Pro multiaxis workholding products.
The 96mm universal Drop & Lock pallet is a new Jergens pattern that is compatible with popular top tooling, such as Makro-Grip workholding products and Jergens Fixture Pro products. The new pallet provides exceptional accuracy, versatility and fast changeovers, providing manufacturing efficiency on multi axis machines.
