“We have used the Techni-Grip vises in both four-axis and five-axis processes where we are able to finish the part complete in one operation leaving the dovetail section held on by locally thinned tab areas. The tabs are then removed manually and the area is hand blended.

While providing outstanding part access, the Techni-Grip vises are very rigid and allow high metal removal rates without the typical ‘pull-out’ problems of more conventional vise designs. This is very helpful to us when demonstrating the maximum capabilities of our machine tools.”

“After realizing the substantial savings in tooling costs attributable to our Techni-Grip 4th axis assembly, I decided to incorporate both of their TombStone configurations in our horizontal cells.”
