Double-Row Workholding System

The Hydramax model Hydra-12 ST-D vise jaws fit directly onto a Kurt-type vise and, with a double row of pistons, allow the user to hold as much as six longer parts at once. A common channel equalizes pressure against all the individual pistons so equal pressure is applied to all parts. Even though hydraulic pressure is used, there are no connections to make, and change-over is fast and easy, according to the company.
