OK-VISE® Fixturing Concept

For all of our systems one of the vital components in fixture design is placing of the modules in their optimal position in the fixture.

Normally the process for clamping one workpiece will be to:

  • Place the stopper(s) on the fixture
  • Place the workpiece against the stopper
  • Place the clamp (with position Aopt) against the workpiece
  • Place second stopper(s) against the opposing jaw of the clamp

As in every OK-VISE Fixturing Concept system, the basic modules in the Blank System are clamp, stopper, side guide and riser block modules.
To resist the clamping and machining forces, a pocket should be machined to the blank plate. Pictures of the pockets are available in the installation instruction.
