Spring-loaded 2-jaw clamping force blocks
Spring-operated 2-jaw clamping force block of the 3rd.  generation in a compact design with a high clamping force and new technical highlights. The clamping force blocks are available with standard jaw stroke, long stroke or fixed jaw.

Advantages – Your benefits

  • Spring-packaged clamping force blocks
    Media-independent workpiece clamping, especially for tombstone or storage applications
  • 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
  • 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

  • Spring-loaded powerhouses for tombstone and storage solutions
    TANDEM KSF3 stands for high-performance, spring-loaded clamping force blocks that are clamped via integrated spring assemblies and opened pneumatically. Due to the spring clamping, however, they are only suitable for O.D. clamping. The clamping force blocks are mainly used in tombstone and storage solutions, as the clamping force is fully maintained even after the compressed air has been removed. In the third generation, the vises can now also be equipped with pneumatic monitoring, which further increases the range of applications.
  • An important aspect in the further development was compatibility, with the result that existing KSF plus vises can be replaced 1:1 by the new KSF3 vises. The tried and tested geometry enables optimal accessibility of the machine spindle to the workpiece.
