Röhm has several robust vise solutions. According to the company, the vises contribute significantly to higher accuracy in five-axis machining. The compact RZM Centric Vise features clamping jaws positioned relatively high and a horizontal spindle situated at the top of the vise and closer to the jaws for stability. The jaws are shorter and complement the vise’s overall compact height of only 7.7" to keep interference to a minimum. Röhm’s special double jaw-guidance system ensures precision positioning.

The RKE NC-Compact Vise clamping system optimizes high working accuracy in CNC machining centers. The vise has a solid steel body with its contact surfaces and guides that are hardened and ground on all sides. According to Röhm, the RKE NC-Compact Vise offers excellent chip discharge with fewer interfering contours. The vise’s protective caps and dirt protectors prevent chips from penetrating the inside of the vise body.

    With moldmaking the focus is on injection molding or other mold types that use wire EDM or CNC machining centers to create the mold components. Your typical machining center weighs several tons and has a relatively small working envelope compared to a CNC router. The mill’s massive construction lends itself to machining rigid materials with very tight tolerances. While this type of CNC is suited for injection molding components, it isn’t always the ideal tool for the job when we broaden our scope of moldmaking and the current opportunities in the marketplace
