The zero-point workholding systems from Kurt Manufacturing come in heavy duty, automatic, standard and custom models. Designed to integrate with new or existing workholding devices such as Kurt vises and fixtures, these VB DockLock systems are designed to provide fast setup on machining centers.

With repeatable positioning accuracy to ± 0.0002" on typical part runs, the system ensures high-quality part finishes, no scrap parts and substantial setup time savings, the company says.

Consisting of a hydraulic actuated locking cylinder, the system instantly aligns and locks the vise or fixture with a clamp down force of 2,800 lbs per locking cylinder and with a retention force of 9,000 lbs per locking cylinder. Once in place, the workholding remains immobile.

The system is said to allow the user to locate or remove the workholding from a machine, or move it offline or to another machine and/or back again with accuracy.
