Kurt Manufacturing has announced that its high density long (HDL) vices (vises) are now available in 4in and 6in capacities and in manual and hydraulic models.

They provide an ideal option for increasing machining centre output using existing machining centres.

The 4in capacity HDLM4 model is ideal for machining smaller parts on smaller machining centres such as precise medical device and electronic parts.

The 6in capacity HDLM6 model is ideal for machining larger parts on larger machining centres such as precision aerospace and automation components.

Both size vices provide repeatable clamping in two clamping stations to 0.0002in (0.005mm).

Designed on an 80,000lb/in2 ductile iron body with precision machined steel components, these new HDL vices are rigid, delivering up to 6,316 lbf of clamping force at 70 ft/lbf of torque.

Both size vices provide strength, rigidity and long-term accuracy while absorbing machining vibration.

Both feature two clamping stations with a full 3in or 4in opening in each station using Kurt’s standard hard jaw system.

Additional features of the HDL manual model include: adjustable pre-load design minimises pre-load range, thus reducing the turns of the handle to open or close the vice; holding block allows clamping same or dissimilar sized parts and provides pre-loading ability in the front or back jaw; maximises the number of parts in the work envelope and multiple part workholding provides better spindle utilisation, reduced tool change time and reduced machine travel from part to part.

The HDL manual model vices easily convert to hydraulic operation using a simple conversion kit.
