Dual Force Precision Self-Centering Machine Vises
This self-centering vise can be used on both vertical as well as horizontal machining centers. Centering accuracy from minimum to maximum opening is 0.0006" with 0.0002" repeatability. Both moveable jaws incorporate the Dual Force design with zero deflection and lift while providing quick, accurate centering of the workpiece.
- Equipped with Dual Force anti-lift mechanism in both jaws
- Precision ground on all sides
- Height tolerance is within ±0.0004" so several vises can be lined up parallel to each other
- 80,000 PSI ductile iron castings deliver the strength, rigidity and long term accuracy required while absorbing machine vibration
- Hardened bed ways
- Hardened jaws
- LIFETIME GUARANTEE
Palmgren's Dual Force line of precision machine vises are all designed for precision part clamping and are ideal for use in running production parts where datum's, flatness and parallelism is key. The Dual Force design allows the moveable jaw to deliver a 1/2 pound of downward force for every pound of horizontal force, reducing jaw deflection up to 80% while producing "all directional alignment" of the moveable jaw. This unique design prevents parts from lifting upward under heavy clamping and machining loads. All Dual Force vises deliver workholding efficiencies by providing the strength and rigidity to hold parts securely and accurately.
