The company’s newly designed vertical vise, Model H4537 for use with its Fixturing System 4000, provides clamping of one or two independent workpieces in the same setup.

Two separate clamping jaws are incorporated in the vise that requires tightening the central screw. No supporting spacers or jackscrews are needed as with Toe clamp-type devices. The clamping jaws were designed for minimal obstruction above the top of the workpiece, according to the company.

The clamping jaws have two workpiece height ranges, 0 mm to 21 mm (0.826") and 21 mm to 41 mm (1.615"). The latter clamping height is achieved by removing the clamping jaws and re-inserting them upside down. Also available are optional height extending clamping jaws H4537-E, that increase that clamping range from 41 mm to 61 mm (2.4").

Removable positive side stops are standard on both sides of the vise for quick alignment of repetitive workpieces, the company says. The vise mounts directly to all the pallets in the 4000 system. It also incorporates a removable spacer so the bottom of the workpiece can be aligned at the "zero" line or 6 mm above it to avoid nozzle interference by the lower support plate.

The part was one of a family of parts that vary in OD and oil hole angle of entry.
