Kurt® SideWinder™ Vises Enhance Production Machining And Secondary Operations For Part Ends And Final Workpiece Cutoff
SideWinder™ vises mount directly to the back of 6 or 8-inch Kurt vises and make an ideal setup when configured in tandem with two or more vises. The Kurt SideWinder vise provides vertical workholding without interfering with an existing host vise or the machine spindle. SideWinder vises expand the capabilities for 6 or 8-inch vises by adding vertical clamping above and behind the host vise and provide easy spindle access for secondary or final machining operations.
Designed to reduce setup time for second operations, the new Kurt SideWinder vises improve throughput and productivity levels using existing machine tools and existing vises. SideWinder sets up easily and can be left attached to the host vise and won’t interfere with other machining setups in the host vise. Removal is easy and reattachment is fast with convenient locating pin feature which eliminates the need to re-indicate the setup.
Available in two models, the SDW25 II mounts to any 6-inch vise and the SDW35 model mounts to both 6 and 8-inch vises. SideWinder features for both models include integral bracket with stabilization feature allowing mounting to the machine table on the stationary jaw end of the vise. Both vise models have a workstop to position the height of the work part. The SideWinder design uses the Kurt Pull-Type design which reduces jaw deflection for more accurate clamping. Like all Kurt vises, both SideWinder models have robust 80,000-PSI ductile iron bodies.
Sidewinder vises also mount to any non-Kurt vise that uses the Kurt industry standard bolt pattern. SideWinder vises are backed by Kurt’s exclusive Lifetime Ironclad Warranty.
