November 2005 | Ice Vice Light
Ice Vice Light enables secure and plane-parallel freezing of flat
workpieces on to its clamping surface using only a little water and in
just a few seconds. An even holding force is effective over the whole
- Clamping of small parts
- Clamping of workpieces with special geometries
- Especially suitable and economically viable in modelling, sample machining, prototype machining and single series machining.
Preparations for use are kept to a minimum.
After chuck is cooled
down to +3°C, some water is sprayed onto clamping surface and part is
positioned. Then freezing process takes place at a temperature of
Time taken until machining can begin is dependant on
working environment, thermal conductivity, warmth capacity and size of
object. Handling is also simple. A switch on top of the basic unit allows selection of pre-cool, freeze and thaw settings. Due
to its compact design Ice-Vice Light only takes up little space
223x67x84mm). It is an economical (and quiet) alternative for those
difficult, small jobs.
