Earth-Chain’s MagVise uses a permanent (rare earth) magnet to grip workpieces without necessitating manual fixturing or vise setups. No electricity is needed, and the block has been designed for longevity. Each block provides as much as 4,620 lbs. of holding power for more than 16,000 lbs. of magnetic force. Units can be ganged together to create custom solutions, and machinable soft jaws are said to be useful for nesting smaller workpieces. In addition to simplifying setups, the block enables five-sided machining and through-hole work, the company says.
