The Schunk Kontec KSC-F single-acting clamping vise with fixed jaw is designed to achieve high clamping forces at comparably low torque. The 160-degree “Quick Clamp” force intensifier enables workpieces to be clamped in less than a second, and because the vise is safely locked, re-tightening with a torque wrench is not necessary, the company says. The vise can be easily actuated by a standard hexagon connection using either conventional socket wrenches, extensions or torque wrenches.

Actuation force is provided by a spindle and is linear. By turning the spindle, the moveable jaw is moved to the fixed jaw. The clamping force depends on the torque, and the clamping range depends on the jaws being used. Because the vise uses tension to clamp, the bending load at the base body is minimized, making it easy to use with Schunk’s entire Vero-S modular quick-change pallet system.
