With the fractal vice FracVise, German fixturing specialist, Witte Barskamp opens up new possibilities for fixing irregularly shaped workpieces.
The precision vice has multi-part clamping jaws and rotating elements that automatically adapt to workpiece contours from small to large when clamped.
With a total of 16 contact points at the smallest fractal jaw clamp level, FracVise is able to adapt to particularly complicated silhouettes and to fix them gently.
In addition to the conventional horizontal orientated clamping method the specially designed jaws ensure a finely dosed, automatic pull-down of the part. As a result, FracVise displays an ideal, workpiece-specific combination of fit and force fixation. A jaw height of 25mm and a clamping width of 0 to 92mm allows room for larger workpieces.
In terms of manufacturing technology, the new product is based on the modular ALUFIX fixturing system from Witte. Its finely machined components made of high-strength or medium-strength aluminium adhere to the ALUFIX precision, while an all-round anodised coating ensures the best wear resistance.
Various mounting holes on the underside allow easy assembly of the fractal vice with screw or quick connections.
