Welcome to our news and resource blog. Here you will find our recent developments relating to people,
products and processes for three business units - Workholding Solutions, Specialty Fasteners and Lifting Solutions.
To keep pace with industry, we are continually introducing new technologies, increasing our reach and sharing our successes.
Achieving consistent workholding pressure is an art form for the skilled operator, and it’s an important step to ensuring that parts are locked down securely and positioned exactly for the next operation. Mechanical vises leave the door open for a higher degree of variation, whereas hydraulic vises repeat with very high accuracy. Additionally, they are fast and easy to operate – both of which contribute to faster overall cycle times. Take for example Jergens 130mm double-acting hydraulic vise – it provides high holding forces, quick clamping and repeatability to improve speed and part tolerance. To handle the many options of CNC machining, this vise comes standard with multiple mounting patterns, different jaw options and easy access to plumbing and maintenance ports.
