The KONTEC KSX-C2, a 5-axis vise from SCHUNK (Morrisville, NC), provides new opportunities for high-precision 6-sided machining. With a striking, upwardly tapered outside contour, the KONTEC KSX-C2 improves accessibility with standard tools. With its active jaw pull-down the KONTEC KSX-C2 achieves excellent results in terms of plane-parallelism and perpendicularity, and therefore creates ideal preconditions for challenging 6-sided machining.
The vise is also setting benchmarks with its adjustable center, even when it comes to set-up times: due to a tool-free jaw quick-change system, reversible jaws for enlarging the clamping area as well as a unique basic jaw stroke of 130 mm which is second to none on the market, the vise can be quickly and precisely converted for a new range of parts. A broad range of quick-change jaws is available for this purpose. Moreover, the clamping range can be enlarged with a standardized piston rod extension.
