GERARDI vices cover most machine shop workholding requirements with Modular and FMS three-in-one Vices, Vice Cubes, Cubes, Tombstones, Magnetic Vices, MULTIFLEX Vices, Self Centering Vices, Hydraulic Vices, Dual Grip Vices, Clamping Elements
There are two vice systems each comprising six vice sizes with a range of jaws and accessories. All manufactured of alloy steel hardened to Ro60 and ground to within 0.02mm on all working surfaces enabling beds to be used as machining datums and ensuring component interchangeability.
GERARDI Art 1 Standard Modular Vice
GERARDI Modular “Standard” and “XL” (extended length) series grip the widest variety of work at lowest overall cost, the system including more than 500 interchangeable beds, bed extensions, fixed/moving jaws, jaw inserts and other accessories. Standard jaws have automatic “Down-Grip” inserts. Manual Torque Multipliers give high gripping force with small manual effort. Or use hydro-mechanical intensifiers where foot or hand switch operation is preferred.
Jaw widths from 75 mm to 300 mm grip any work length. VEE , flat , compensating, high top, swivelling jaw options (to name but a few) also available.
GERARDI FMS “three-in-one” Vice
GERARDI FMS “three-in-one” VICES hold one or two parts per load
With a square section bed internally accommodating the operating screw, maximum work holding capacity is obtained within the smallest vice “footprint”.
GERARDI FMS Vice with “VEE” jaws
Equipped with VEE jaws. GERARDI FMS vices become precision self centering vices(+/- 0.02mm) with shaft capacities up to 400mm
GERARDI FMS vices may be clamped to the faces of GERARDI cubes or tombstones. However GERARDI all alloy steel vice cubes embody an FMS vice in each face providing the maximum workholding capacity within a given volume, combined with great rigidity.
GERARDI Multiflex Vice Cube
GERARDI MULTIFLEX vices available in linear form or as cubes, are used horizontally or vertically to powerfullygrip multiples of small parts. Of hardened and precision ground alloy steel, MULTIFLEX are often used with pallet
loaders so that one set of parts is in process whilst a
second MULTIFLEX is prepared for loading.
