1st MTA is now offering low-profile, centric vices from German manufacturer Best that are suited to clamping components undergoing multi-axis metal-cutting applications on machining centres.

The Best range is claimed to combine high-quality, high-clamping forces of up to 100kN with competitive prices.

The vices can clamp on only 3mm of material; they have a +/-0.01mm centring accuracy with a five-micron repeatability of centricity for manual and pneumatic vices and a one-micron repeatability for hydraulic types.

Vices range in length from 115mm to 500mm and provide up to 50mm stroke.

Face plates and adapters allow them to be fitted to any machine table, pallet or rotary table.

The manually operated centric vices are designated BSM.

Depending on requirements, they can be screwed conventionally to the table or used as a zero-point vice on the Best Realpoint quick-change system (or other manufacturers’ zero-point clamping systems after simple adaptation).

Vibration-absorbing, thermally stable epoxy mineral tombstones with integrated Realpoint zero-point clamping are available.

Encapsulated manual vices have their working components sealed against the ingress of swarf and coolant, making them suitable for automated production processes, particularly those that are unattended.

These vices can also be adapted to suit zero-point arrangements.

Jaw varieties including knife-edge options are manufactured from a range of materials from aluminium through machinable steel to hardened and ground steel to suit the application.

The master base jaw design ensures modularity across the range and features a serrated location plate to ensure accurate mounting to the vice.

Quick-change jaws are an option to the traditional tongue and groove for all vices with a suitable connection.
