Schunk’s Powerful Double Clamping Vise with Encapsulated Drive

The family of manual SCHUNK KONTEC KSC Basic-Line is known for high clamping forces, ease of use, short set-up times and excellent price-performance ratio. SCHUNK, the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology is now expanding its modular system with the SCHUNK KONTEC KSC-D, a lightweight and flat double clamping vise  especially designed for demanding applications in automated machine tools with workpiece storage. An induction- hardened base body, long jaw guidances, fitted slide, case-hardened chuck jaws and a fully encapsulated drive  ensure a high degree of precision, maximum wear resistance, and minimal cleaning effort. Completely nickel-plated,  the vise is perfectly protected against corrosion for continuous use in pallet systems or on tombstones.

Simple operation due to third hand function

By means of a convenient third hand function, two workpieces can be inserted next to each other, fixed, and securely clamped together. Due to the trapezoidal threads, high clamping forces can be achieved with little manual effort. As part of the SCHUNK modular system for highly efficient workpiece clamping, the clamping force blocks offer further  advantages: the clamping pins of the SCHUNK VERO-S quick-change pallet system without adapter plate can be directly  screwed into the base body of the vise. The clamping force blocks can also be fitted with a wide variety of jaws  from the SCHUNK standard chuck jaw range. The double clamping vise is available in three sizes with jaw widths of  80 mm or 125 mm, clamping forces of 25 kN or 40 kN, and base body lengths of 300 mm, 320 mm, and 740 mm.
