What is the advantage of centric clamping over one with a fixed jaw?

With centric clamping, the center of the workpiece is always centered in relation to the vise, regardless of the workpiece length. This ensures optimum accessibility, centered programming and centered distribution of allowances.

How does centric clamping work with the ZS Machine Tool Vise?

By means of a precise threaded spindle with right-hand and left-hand thread which is directly mounted in the base body.

How does the quick adjustment of the clamping width and the quick jaw change system work on the ZS Machine Tool Vise?

An Allen key is used to unlock a locking bolt in the jaw. The jaw can now be moved by hand and can be shifted or changed.

How is the ZS Machine Tool Vise clamped?

The ZS Machine Tool Vise is clamped at the front with a Allen key or a torque spanner.

How accurate is the ZS Machine Tool Vise?

Due to its rigidity, the ZS Machine Tool Vise is very accurate and can therefore also be used for machining precise components.

What are the steel ball-bearings in the jaws used for?

These are spring-loaded pressure points. Our Kesel step ledges (support ledges) can be clicked into these.
