The Toolex system also has the most comprehensive offering of jaws and accessories available in the market. Many of our vise accessories can also fit our competitor vises as well. We also recently introduced our new vise for 5-axis applications and our double-acting hydraulic vise.
The vise for 5-Axis applications is specifically designed for 5-axis machining centers and for machine with a small work envelope. This vise is manufactured from 4140 steel for maximum rigidity and accuracy. The vise footprint is only 4” x 4” x 6.5”, however it can attain clamping pressures up to 6,000 lbs.
The Double Acting Hydraulic Vise is ideal for Robotic and Lights-out manufacturing due to its independently acting clamping stations. This vise is currently available in a 4” size, however, a 6” version is coming soon.
