Fixtureworks (Fraser, MI) has added the Kurt DX6 vise with TG GripSert jaws and gripper inserts to its lineup. With a clamping capacity of up to 9 in., the Kurt DX6 CrossOver vise, the latest of Kurt D-series vises, provides improved bearing pack, all-directional alignment and a reduction in jaw lift. The vise also features a lighter weight nut and a new brush seal design. New from Fixtureworks, the DX6 is available with standard 6 in. Kurt jaws, or for low-profile clamping, TG GripSert jaws and inserts.
Fixtureworks offers four Kurt Vise packages: the standard Kurt DX6 CrossOver Vise; Kurt DX6 CrossOver Vise with TG GripSert jaws for low-profile clamping; Kurt DX6 CrossOver Vise with TG GripSert jaws for low-profile clamping and pair of snap-in parallels; and Kurt DX6 Crossover Vise complete with TGJ-06 GripSert jaws and a 10-pack of TG-STD workholding gripper inserts for steel workpieces.
GripSert carbide gripper inserts are designed for ultra-low profile 0.14 in. (3.5 mm) clamping with no dovetail workpiece preparation. These patented triangular grippers feature two rows of teeth at different angles with a five-degree taper to maximize the pull-down effect, divide the clamping force, absorb vibration and allow for high stability and secure workholding.
