The VB 5AX100 clamps the workpiece at 100 mm above the machine table with up to 40 kN of force.
Two jaws, one stationary and one movable, are connected with a tension spindle under the workpiece. Putting the spindle close to the workpiece minimizes jaw deflection, machine table distortion, and part misalignment.
The jaws can clamp pieces from 2 to 236-mm wide. Optional screws extend the width to fit any workpiece within the machining center envelope. Clamping depth is 8 mm. Mounting blocks for standard T-slot tables, location grid machine tables, or custom fixtures are available.
