The Hydramax Workholding System is designed to allow multiple parts, with variations in size to be secured in a Kurt vise simultaneously. Problems usually associated with attempting to hold multiple parts in one vise are virtually eliminated. Save time and money without the hassles of broken cutters, scraped parts, or damaged fixtures. Also, fragile parts can be held securely, without crushing pressure.rnrn
The system includes two jaws both equipped with our FastBack washer mounting plates. The solid jaw is replaced by a simple machinable aluminum soft jaw, while the moveable jaw is replaced by the Hydramax jaw. The Hydramax jaw incorporates several independently acting clamping pistons. These pistons compensate for variations in the parts being held. The self-contained hydraulic chamber within the jaw equalizes the pressure of the individual pistons, allowing the jaw to adapt to the parts being held for machining. Multiple systems are available with variations in the size and number of hydraulic pistons within the self-contained jaw unit.
