The new KONTEC KSC3 manual basic clamping vise offers users a significant gain in process reliability. Its nickel-plated base body protects against corrosion and wear and extends its range of applications.

 

When it comes to process-reliable workpiece clamping in machining of raw and finished parts, the KONTEC KSC centric clamping vise has established itself as a highly efficient all-rounder. Now clamping device expert SCHUNK presents a successor that is in no way inferior in terms of reliability and precision.

The new product also offers optimum corrosion protection due to its nickel-plated base body. This means that it can now be used even in demanding environments, for example with high humidity. Its extremely flat design and improved interfering contour ensures optimum accessibility, especially for 5-axis machining. This optimizes the use of the machine room. Another plus for process reliability is its encapsulated spindle. Its enclosed design with better chip discharge via lateral grooves protects from dirt and reduces maintenance costs. Since its bearing is free from play, the vise has an excellent repeat accuracy of up to +/- 0.01 mm, thus enabling highly precise machining of the first and second sides with only one clamping device.

 

Flexibly combinable

The centric clamping vise is 100% compatible with the predecessor KSC model and can be exchanged without any alterations to the program. Its unique, extensive range of system and top jaws and the easy jaw exchange via just two screws enables this multi-talent to be flexibly adapted to new clamping tasks in just a few steps.

In addition, its VERO-S interface, which comes as standard, enables the KSC3 to be combined with the flexible SCHUNK stationary toolholding and workholding modular system, resulting in a wide range of clamping options. The KONTEC KSC3 is available in sizes 80, 125 and 160. Due to the efficient force transmission, the workpieces are held securely with clamping forces of up to 35 kN.
