Key data at a glance
With the stamping jaws mounted on the stamping unit, the workpiece blank is provided with a defined contour under high pressure and held by form-fit in the Makro•Grip® 5-axis vise. High-End stamping jaws are designed for materials up to a maximum of 45 HRC. Parallels on which the blank rests during the stamping process are included in the delivery and pre-mounted. The clamping depth of 3 mm is identical to the clamping depth for the subsequent workpiece clamping.
Makro•Grip® Stamping Technology and Raw Part Clamping
The Makro•Grip® 5-Axis Vise and its unique benefits of the stamping technology has been considered „The Original“ and a benchmark in the 5-face machining of raw parts for years. Its compact design and high holding forces make the Makro•Grip® 5-Axis Vise the ideal clamping device for machining raw parts.
- Holding force Thanks to the form-fit clamping principle, highest holding forces can be achieved with Makro•Grip®, even at low clamping pressure.
- Process reliability Clamping with Makro•Grip® provides maximum process reliability and is easy on the workpiece to be processes at the same time.
- Accessibility The compact Makro•Grip® self-centering vises guarantee ideal accessibility in the 5-axis machining of raw parts.

Reconditioning of Stamping Jaws
When the stamping teeth are worn out the jaws can be reconditioned up to 6 times. The origi-nal thickness of a stamping jaw is 18 mm. With every reconditioning process the thickness is reduced by 0.5 mm until it has reached 15 mm (measured at the highest stamping tooth tip). If a stamping tooth is broken off more than 0.5 mm need to be removed and the total amount of reconditioning processes is reduced accordingly.
