Modular Vise does Multi-Part Workholding

Posted by CNC Reporter on Feb 4th, 2014.

Lexair’s modular CIVI Rail workholding system boosts the productivity, accuracy and repeatability of horizontal machining centers, providing multi-part clamping in virtually limitless configurations on tombstones and trunnions. A unique V-jaw design pulls parts down against the parallels and a 60-degree angle on serrations provide more clamping surface for a sure hold on high-value parts. CIVI Rail can be used as a vise on existing machines, mounted vertically or horizontally on a tombstone or with a trunnion, providing flexibility and the ability to produce better parts, more efficiently. The system includes interchangeable bases, moveable jaws and fixed supports. Bases are available in standards lengths from 10” to 24.8” (250 mm to 630 mm) and 2.4” or 3.5” (60 mm or 90 mm) widths, and include one fixed support. A 1.5-inch (38-mm) jaw can be used on the 2.4” (60 mm) rail for clearance around all sides of the part.
