A compact clamping solution that’s smaller than the workpiece!
Illustrated above is the incredible gripping power of a Spreitzer MZR vice compared to the size of the workpiece. In this instance, the client manufactures prototypes in aluminium and titanium for the aerospace and motorsport sectors. The result, a typical example of finished gearbox component. The client currently utilises roughly 220 vices from Spreitzer, 200 of which are MZR 160-60 PA and the remaining variants are MZU and MZC. Due to the robustness and reliability of Spreitzer vices the business has successfully and consistently manufactured for three years, performing a three shift pattern without loss of production or the expense of additional tooling.
A further benefit of utilising Spreitzer centric clamping vices is the ability of safe clamping of workpieces without having to pre-stamp, which ultimately saves time and money. Through the use of short cutting tools and less vibration on the workpiece, longer tool life can also be achieved and the machining time per piece can be reduced due to higher metal removal.
