XL Series Extra Capacity Vises

Kurt Workholding’s XL extra capacity specialty vises are designed for the precision clamping of very large parts and for both tool and die production CNC machining applications. With maximum jaw openings up to 28.750”, XL Series vises lock precisely and hold workpieces securely, even in high horsepower “hogging out” applications.

All sides of Kurt XL extra capacity vises are accurate to within 0.001" for precise, easy alignment in multiples. These vises can also be mounted and used as receivers for other workholding fixtures.
