Zero Point Clamping System / DockLock
The VB DockLock system is a patented, zero-point workholding system for increasing productivity and reducing setup and changeover. The VB DockLock system integrates with new or existing devices, such as Kurt vises and workholding fixtures, and provides fast, ultra accurate setup on machining centers. Time consuming setup, alignment and bolt down tasks are eliminated. The system consists of a patented hydraulic actuated locking cylinder device that positions and locks the vise or fixture onto the machine worktable. It allows the user to locate or remove the workholding from a machine, or move it offline or to another machine and/or back again in just seconds with zero-point positioning accuracy every time.
To help you make the most of your DockLock system, Kurt has DockLock videos you can download, along with DockLock brochures. You can also contact a Kurt representative to learn more about our versatile clamping systems and our custom workholding fixtures.
