The Small Alternative to the Large Centric Vise

"HAINBUCH's modular system, which makes possible virtually any workholding configuration whether you are working with round, prismatic, small or larger components, has been expanded with the addition of the 2-jaw module, an adaptation to clamp cubic parts," said a company spokesperson. "The various workholding adapters can be installed in two minutes or less."

Round workpieces are clamped from the outside with clamping heads (collets) within the collet chuck. Larger diameter workpieces, beyond the capacity of the collet chuck, can be clamped with the 3-jaw module. For cubic parts that are positioned centrically on machining centers and milling machines, the new 2-jaw module is now an option. Users can change over from clamping round parts to cubic ones in less than two minutes.

"The 2-jaw module can handle turning applications up to 1,500 RPM. Due to its compact profile, it is the perfect alternative to large and heavy centric vises," said the spokesperson. The 2-jaw and 3-jaw module use the HAINBUCH collet chuck as their base. Changeover is possible without removing the collet chuck and realignment due to HAINBUCH's Centrex quick-change interface.

"HAINBUCH's modular solution, consisting of a chuck and jaw module, no longer compare to the large and heavy vises that are found in many shops and whose size is more of an obstacle than an advantage," said the spokesperson. "As is often the case, the workholding is much larger than the part to be machined so interference is an issue. Special, longer tools are then needed and there is a risk of a costly collision. The HAINBUCH modular system, on the other hand, is just as efficient and flexible as your multitasking machine tools are today."
