Röhm Products of America redesigned its RKE NC-Compact Vice clamping system to include several technical improvements to further optimize its function in CNC machining centers with high working accuracy.

Featuring a solid steel body with its contact surfaces and guides hardened and ground on all sides, the RKE NC-Compact Vice now offers better chip discharge with fewer interfering contours. Furthermore, protective caps and dirt protectors prevent chips from penetrating the inside of the vice body.

A central grease nipple sits next to the adjustable drive spindle for easy accessibility and simple lubrication of the spindle threads and all guides.

Available in four different jaw widths, 3.6", 4.9", 6.3" and 7.9", the RKE NC-Compact Vice provides for horizontal, lateral or vertical mounting options. Thread connections allow use of all the company's flat-clamping jaws within the 4.9" and 6.3" width sizes.
