Morrisville, North Carolina – Schunk has expanded the Kontec KSC 80 product line to include KSC 125 and KSC 160 in a variety of lengths and jaw configurations.

This centric clamping vise is a multifaceted component that has optimal jaw support for ID and OD clamping. It can be easily adapted for conventional clamping, short clamping depths for 5-sided machining, mold parts, plates, or saw cuts.

The KSC is known for high precision and process reliability, with an extremely flat design. A pre-tensioned and backlash-free center bearing and an extra fitted slide guarantee a repeat accuracy of ±0.01mm and enable the precise processing of the first and second side in a clamping system. An integrated chip drain and a protected spindle assure maximum process reliability. The centric clamping vise is suited for storage solutions in automated machine tools.
