Vise with Double Clamping

The GARANT Xtric centering vise features a center jaw. Gripper mounting holes and an endutec automation interface make it suitable for an automated environment. The GARANT Xtric centering vise has a clamping jaw quick-change system with click mechanism and jaws that can be rotated 180°.

The GARANT Xtric centering vise with center jaw can clamp two finished parts or blanks. Pre-stamping is not required.

Hoffmann Group's GARANT Xtric centering vise-with clamping jaw quick-change system in line with the "Click&Clamp" principle and acts directly on the component with up to 25 kN clamping force and hardly creates any jaw and component lift-off-is now available with a center jaw. The advantage of this is that two finished parts or blanks can now be clamped simultaneously and without pre-stamping, making set-up twice as fast. The new gripper mounting holes and an endutec automation interface also make the vise suitable for use in an automated environment.

The Hoffmann Group has also expanded the GARANT Xtric range by four new base lengths. For the first time, the GARANT Xtric is available in size XS with a base length of just 136 mm for processing small components. This means sizes XS, S and M are now available in a jaw width of 80 mm. In addition to this there are new vises with a jaw width of 125 mm, 32 kN clamping force and a length of up to 270 mm in sizes XS, S and M. All models are alternatively available with pivot jaws. This means the customer can choose between six vise sizes, which are each available in two variants.

The GARANT Xtric can quickly be converted into a double vise: the user simply changes the standard spindle bearing and inserts the center jaw. The jaws, which can be rotated 180° and interchanged precisely to the micrometer, are then put back in place. Due to the click mechanism, this is performed quickly, and with GARANT gripper jaws, blanks can be clamped without pre-stamping. Top jaws suitable for the "LANG" system are also available. All models are equipped with an endutec automation interface, which can be used as a coolant hole, as well as gripper mounting holes on both sides as standard. This makes them suited to a wide range of automation strategies.

In addition, the GARANT Xtric offers the following for attachment to the machine table: longitudinal slots, holes for the LANG positioning system with a pitch of 52 mm or 96 mm, as well as adapter plates for clamping on the GARANT Zero Clamp zero point system or other zero point clamping systems.
