Diverse clamping solutions for milling round or pre-machined components
While the strengths of Makro•Grip® stamping technology and the 5-Axis Vises are mainly seen in the processing of unmachined parts, workholding devices of the „Conventional Workholding“ category offer various options for smooth clamping of round or pre-machined components. To solve the respective clamping task, a 6-jaw chuck, two collet chucks and a total of three different types of centering vises are available to the operator.
They differ only in the type of their clamping jaws. They use the same base body as the Makro•Grip® 5-Axis Vise, which ensures consistent compatibility and interchangeability. The different types of jaws of the „Conventional Workholding“ are ideally suited for demanding rear-face machining tasks and perfectly complement the 5-Axis Vise in order to machine all faces of a workpiece.

Benefits of Conventional Workholding
Start your own success story with „Conventional Workholding“ solutions by LANG. This is what our customers have to say:
Recently, we have seen an increase in the number of cylindrical blanks that have to be produced on our 5-axis machines and have decided to use the new Vasto•Clamp. We have been using the Vasto-Clamp for some time and have been able to reduce set-up times with the click jaw system. With parts that are not completely cylindrical, the 6-jaw chuck makes it possible to remove a top jaw without any problems and still clamp parts flat. Eccentric clamping is also child's play thanks to the click jaws. Whether raw parts or precise clamping with pre-machined jaws for thin-walled components, the 6-jaw chuck clamps safely and without deformation. Due to its shape, the Vasto•Clamp is more accessible than conventional jaw chucks.!

The Avanti vises in connection with aluminium top jaws are our first choice when it comes to clamping parts for which a special machined contour is required. Since the top jaws are held securely from below by a special interface, there are no annoying screws, pins or clamps. We also do not waste any machinable space in the top jaws, because there are no holes or counter bores. This means that the entire jaw volume can be used to machine the required contour. In addition, the good accessibility from all sides due to the lack of interfering areas, as well as the fast and acurate jaw exchange, makes the Avanti the most widely used vice for seconds operations in our shop.

We mainly use the Preci•Point to clamp pre-turned components that contain precise 3D contours after machining on the 5-axis machines. Due to its slim design, parts can be clamped with low vibration. Accessibility with shorter tools is also better than with common competitor products.
