Secure clamping of 5 axis components with Thame's Makro Grip

Added to MTDCNC by Thame Workholding on 29 July 2015

Secure clamping of 5 axis components with maximum accessibility can now be achieved with the new Makro Grip patented centring vice from Thame Workholding. The flexibility of this exciting new product line can deliver benefits in abundance with customers witnessing improved accessibility, flexibility and also reduced set-up times with the new Makro Grip.

The new Makro Grip minimises potential collision paths with its improved access to the component that is achieved through the patented stamping technology. This delivers the maximum component clamping force at the lowest actuation force, so customers can clamp on material depths from as little as 2mm with confidence. Not only does this save on material costs but the stamping technology also generates a remarkably high level of repeatability by clamping workpieces in the holding teeth within the jaw contour. This eliminates the need for end stops on the vice. 

The innovative new vice is completely flexible to meet the demands of the end user. This is demonstrated by its availability in a number of variants such as the Makro Grip 46 with a clamping range up to 105mm and a jaw width of 46mm, the Makro Grip 77 that clamps up to 200mm with a jaw width of 77mm and the Makro Grip 125  with a range up to 355mm and a  jaw width of 125mm. In addition, customers can also apply reversible jaws to the Makro Grip system. This offering makes the Makro Grip suitable for customers machining anything from small to large parts. Furthermore, the Makro Grip vices can be retrofitted with master jaw carriers that accept machineable soft top jaws in either steel or aluminium.

The addition of soft jaws is a process simplified by precision key ways that guarantee accurate positioning of soft top jaws. Available in  steel or aluminium, the soft jaws are completely machineable to permit  multiple profiles. Furthermore, Thame can accept drawings from customers to allow the end users to design bespoke top jaws.
