Jergens Inc.

Cleveland, Ohio – Jergens Inc. is making three key additions to the company’s range of OK Vise compact, low-profile edge clamps. Among them are Multi-Rail (MR), Knife Grip, and Hydraulic Kits.

Multi-Rail is a general-purpose, multi-configurable, modular workholding system capable of holding challenging workpieces, small and large, and often multiple in the same location. Multi-Rail is also compatible to mount to the Jergens QLS Grid System, a lightweight 2-pc aluminum column that opens up further machining opportunities including connections with the company’s Fixture Pro and Ball Lock.

Knife Grip are also compact, low-profile edge clamps to improve production and provide solutions for difficult applications. OK Vise Knife Grip jaws feature serrated teeth to penetrate softer materials and prevent part movement due to the load imposed by machining forces.

Hydraulic actuation kits pair the OK Vise clamping system with the advantages of hydraulic workholding. Repeatable clamping forces and improved ergonomics are two key benefits for high-production applications. OK Vise clamps are small yet provide excellent clamping force, up to 150kN.
