Gerardi > The vises with modularity without compromises

Italy, Lonate Pozzolo – Available for 5 axis machining centers of medium to large size


In the vises particular attention should be paid to the FMS/Multitasking vise Art.868, which proved to be “on the field” one of the best vises currently available for 5 axis machining centers of medium to large size.
Where normal Multitasking vises are no longer sufficient due to their dimension and clamping force, the modular FMS Art.868 is the solution.
There are over twenty sizes available, with bases from 300 mm to 1,000 mm and jaws opening from 130 mm to 800 mm in order to cover almost all possible applications and without sacrificing the typical modularity of all Gerardi vises.


The technical features:

The greater height of the base, the length and precision of the self-centering guides give the system incomparable rigidity and centesimal positioning repeatability during the clamping phase.  A vise with a “high base” is a strategic choice that enables us to avoid the use of the normal spacers underneath and gives us the possibility to mount specific high movable bases for standard jaws Art.814 in order to allow at best all machining, even in case of maximum rotation of the tilting table.
The FMS/Multitasking vise Art.868 comes with GRIP jaw plates, typical of 5-axis machining, with no price increase. As all the other vises of the FMS series, Art.868 is modular and can be used for the clamping of two pieces simply inserting a central fixed jaw.
