Expanded Range of Dovetail Vises

Jergens 52 mm Modular Dovetail Vise with Quick-Loc mount and aluminum adapter base is one of several new workholding choices that provide quick change possibilities for minimal material clamping.

Jergens has added new modular dovetail vises and adapter bases to its line of Fixture Pro workholding for more quick-change applications using this style of clamping.

"Dovetail vises offer secure clamping with minimal material and are ideal for parts with multiple operations and larger metal removal," said a company spokesperson. "With the ability to utilize quick-change solutions, users can spend more time in the cut and less time in part changeover."

Two of the three new vises are engineered for use with Jergens Quick-Loc pallet system and include industry standard patterns 52 mm and 96 mm. With a single drive screw, Quick-Loc provides fast and repeatable fixture changes for small tooling platforms. A square aluminum adapter base provides the connection to either of the two patterns. The third vise features a Quick Locating System (QLS) mount for column-mounting possibilities, and a corresponding round adapter base for this type of workholding.

Construction features of these vises include hardened steel jaws, a 10° dovetail angle and a stop pin to prevent lateral movement of the part. The Quick-Loc vises include pull studs and the QLS version comes with 12 mm (QLS) bushings. Jergens also offers its 5DC3 standard dovetail cutter to custom mate the part with the vise pattern.
