Over 100 years ago, the first Palmgren angle vise was manufactured, and thus, our journey as a company began.
The Palmgren Traditional drill press vises followed shortly, and then came a complete line-up of standard machine and milling vises as well as other angle and compound angle machine vises. The first of their kind. To further expand the usefulness and capabilities of all our Palmgren vises, Clarence Palmgren developed a complete line of cross slide and rotary tables that were engineered and manufactured to help transfer workpieces from one machine position to another without losing squareness or alignment. Clarence was acclaimed for his achievements and contributions to the metalworking industry through these innovative designs and patents and is credited for some of the first machine vises that significantly increased efficiency and productivity for metalworking manufacturers worldwide.
Palmgren continues to be a market leader today, not only with our vises and positioning tables, but across our whole expanded metalworking product offering. Since 1919, our products have proven their reliability, efficiency and durability. Professionals from all industries throughout the world rely on Palmgren. We are committed to helping our users Embrace The Work™ through our products and exceptional service at every step of every business relationship.
