Kurt Workholding


Kurt Workholding’s Pyramid workholding platform is designed to attach three Kurt vises for 5-axis machining multiple parts in one load. The 45° vise mounting surface is positioned so each vise provides maximum access to all machined surfaces and allows for enhanced spindle and cutting tool clearance.

Constructed of 7075 anodized aluminum, with a 12” diameter base to fit a wide variety of 5-axis CNC machines, the Pyramid comes pre-drilled for easy mounting to most machine tables, pallets, or a variety of sub-plates.

Kurt vises designed to fit the Kurt Pyramid include 5 -axis dovetail vises and 5-axis self-centering vises with a variety of workholding capacities. Workpiece sizes can range from 2" up to 12" blanks. Kurt vise models equipped to fit the Pyramid include: HP420, HP440, HP460, SCMX250, SCMX425, DTR20, and KTR35.

Dovetail, machinable, and serrated jaws can be used in the Kurt 5-axis vises, providing the capability to hold machined dovetail workpieces, castings, round components, and various workpiece shapes.

Kurt Manufacturing can provide additional setup options such as quick-change pallet systems, hydraulic or pneumatic actuation, robotic machine tending for automation, in-process gaging, and inspection.
