JERGENS ADDS OK-VISE® LOW-PROFILE CLAMPING SYSTEMS TO ITS RANGE OF WORKHOLDING SOLUTIONS

 

Thursday, November 12th, 2015, Cleveland OH– Jergens, Inc. announces the addition of OK-VISE clamping systems to its range of workholding solutions. At the heart of the product offering is a unique, patented wedge-operated, low-profile clamp that provides uniform pressure via a single hex screw. OK-VISE components can be used to build both general-purpose and dedicated fixturing and work in conjunction with other Jergens workholding platforms.

 

A systems approach provides all the basic elements needed for flexible fixturing. Among the components are Multi-Rail and Combo-Rail units, to which multiple clamps can be attached to accommodate numerous parts in a single set-up. The rail system can be modified per the need of the parts to be machined. Additionally, the OK-VISE line offers grid fixturing and blank fixturing for custom workholding needs.

 

The clamps are available with several jaw styles including serrated, smooth, machinable and adjustable. Single-wedge and double-wedge, pull down styles and a simplified economy version of the clamp round out the offering.

 

Best known as the original inventor and manufacturer of wedge-operated low-profile clamps, OK-VISE is a well-respected international brand with manufacturing in Muurame, Finland. The partnership between Jergens and OK-VISE is founded on a mutual approach to workholding innovations. "We have a high level of confidence in Jergens, especially as an international leader in workholding solutions", says Olavi Meriläinen, Managing Director of OK-VISE Inc.
