DX4 CrossOver Vise



Pictured front to back: DX4 CrossOver manual model and DX4 CrossOver manual reverse model.

Kurt has launched the , a reduced size version of its DX6 CrossOver Vise. "Similarly designed to achieve new levels in workholding strength and performance where flatness and parallelism are critical, this DX4 CrossOver vise answers machinists' needs for smaller workholding," said a company spokesperson.

Kurt's DX4 is designed for the precision requirements of CNC production to tool room applications and replaces Kurt's D40 vise with new and enhanced features. The DX4 has a larger jaw opening (6.5" vs. 3.75") but with the same bed height and distance from keyway to stationary jaw as the D40 vise. Available in a manual model, plus manual reverse model for easier part programming in Y axis positive direction.

The DX4 CrossOver vise is a combination of AngLock and Pull-Type designs from Kurt's D-series and 3400V vises, and 2 top bolt FEA designed stationary jaw. "These combined features result in an ultra-unique design strategy for a better vise, including: (1) Kurt's AngLock design for all-directional clamping alignment and downward force reducing jaw deflection, (2) pull-type design reducing stress in the body while maintaining flatness after assembly and (3) a 2-bolt stationary jaw design that reduces jaw deflection," said the spokesperson.

With enlarged jaw holding capacity, the DX4 CrossOver vise features a full 6.5" jaw opening within the inside jaw position. A lighter and narrower vise body with a footprint of 4.962" wide x 12.50" long allows more vises on the machine table. The vise body also provides chip evacuation straight through the body at sides and end of the vise to prevent chip build-up.

Additional features include: 80,000 PSI ductile iron body, nut and movable jaw, a semi-hard steel screw and a hardened vise bed and jaw plates. A larger and stronger bearing pack adds to longer vise life. A new brush seal is designed for easier removal or replacement in the nut. The DX4 locates quickly on 40 mm, 50 mm and 2" grid patterns. A GrooveLock jaw plate and workstop are included with all s for convenient part positioning.
