Cutting downtime in a VMC

Paul Boughton

OK-VISE’s new rotary pallet system is especially designed for boosting up the productivity in VMC. It allows, for example, stepless movement of the clamps in the t-slots machined to each side of the rotary column. Length of the column can vary from 300 mm up to 800 mm depending on customers preference.

Corner clamps and subplates can be used in a column just as well as low-profile clamps giving more variation and extra possibilities to tackle different, flexible fixturing needs.

A newly designed micro clamp has also been added to OK-VISE low-profile clamp line. These clamps are suitable for t-slot tables just as well as columns of CNC machining centres. They can be operated manually, hydraulically or pneumatically. New AK2-VT clamp is almost a half the size of BK2-VT. These products were introduced at EMO Hannover 2005.

OK-VISE OY is based in Muurame, Finland. www.ok-vise.com
