4" & 6" HDHL Hydraulic Vises (Metric)

Vises are an economic, versatile and durable workholding solution used by various industries and for a wide range of applications. They work by holding workpieces in place as they are machined can involve the use a single station or multiple-vise stations, and in horizontal and vertical configurations, depending on the application. When choosing a hydraulic vise, it’s important to consider the machine size and work type as well as the size and type of material. Cycle time and production size are also of importance.
Hydraulic vises are typically used when manufacturing large runs of an identical product and are ideal for use in larger machining centers. They require the use of a hydraulic pump to move the jaws into a clamped position to hold the workpiece in place. High density hydraulic vises provide consistent and repeatable clamping that can significantly reduce errors and increase productivity.
Our Workholding Selection Guide is the perfect resource for choosing the right hydraulic vise and vise accessories for your machining needs.

Hydraulic Vises for High Density Machining Applications

Our high density hydraulic vises feature a center jaw plate with two clamping stations, neutralizing the bending pressure against the center of the vise and saving valuable space. Our quick-change jaw feature has fewer components, making for easier and faster changeovers for your hydraulic vise. HDHL hydraulic vises also feature a pre-loaded jaw design for easier loading.
Kurt Workholding high density hydraulic vises are operated by a motorized, hand-operated, toggle switch-operated or footswitch-operated hydraulic pump that helps provide constant and reliable pressure when operating the workholding vises. Hydraulic vises also provide workers with relief from having to perform repetitive motions.

4” and 6” HDHL Hydraulic Vise Features
