Hydraulic 2-jaw clamping force blocks
Hydraulically actuated 2-jaw clamping force blocks of the 3rd. generation in a compact design with high clamping forces and new technical highlights. The clamping force blocks are available with standard stroke, long stroke or fixed jaw.

Advantages – Your benefits

  • Large range of different versions
    Therefore ensuring highest flexibility with the largest and most powerful standard range of hydraulic clamping force blocks
  • Patented monitoring of the base jaw position via dynamic pressure
    Know whether the vise is open or clamped
  • Workpiece presence control through the base jaw
    Enables automated loading of the clamping force block
  • Inductive jaw monitoring
    Know whether the vise is open or clamped
  • Precision wedge hook clamping force block for top-quality demands
    Allows excellent machining results
  • Square design with ideal external contour
    Ideal for 6-sided machining in two set-ups with great lateral accessibility
  • High efficiency of the wedge hook system
    Process-reliable clamping due to high clamping forces
  • Base jaws with tongue and groove or fine serration as standard
    High flexibility of system jaws
  • Optimal jaw support due to the use of a very long base jaw guidance
    Allows high clamping forces at a long service life
  • All sides of the functional parts are hardened and ground
    Ensures a long service life

Options and special information

  • Compact, hydraulically actuated powerhouses for series production
    TANDEM KSH3 stands for powerful, hydraulically actuated clamping force blocks, which are mainly used in series production where hydraulics are available at the machine. Patented monitoring of the base jaw position via dynamic pressure or the possibility of air control through the jaw are only two of the additional features that have been included in the new generation. A few innovations have been integrated especially in terms of automation.
  • An important aspect in the further development was compatibility, with the result that existing KSH plus vises can be replaced 1:1 by the new KSH3 vises. The tried and tested geometry enables optimal accessibility of the machine spindle to the workpiece. If required, the vises can also be designed with inductive jaw monitoring.
