Blank System modules
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.
Generic components that can be used with Blank System
Single-directional clamp modules ( KCS- )
In most cases, code format is KCS-sjn, where s corresponds to a clamp size (B or D), j is a jaw type (Serrated, Smooth) and n is a frame type.
Almost all other jaw combinations are also available. For example, in KCS-DES1 model, E stands for a self-aligning jaw and S - for a smooth jaw.
This module has one jaw with self-aligning jaw
This module has one jaw for additional pieces
For extremely compact design, types like KCS-BR3 are recommended. Please note that in this case fixture plate must be machined also from the bottom side (see instruction).
Dual-directional clamp modules ( KCD- )
These modules clamp in two directions, enabling to clamp two workpieces.
In most cases, code format is KCD-sjn, where s corresponds to a clamp size (B or D), j is a jaw type (Serrated, Smooth) and n is a plate type.
Stopper modules ( KS-)
Stopper modules positions the workpiece.
In most cases, code format is KS-Sx, where S corresponds to a smooth jaw type and x is a stopper type.
R = serrated
D = diamond or tungsten carbide coating
Blank System side guides ( KG-)
In most cases, the code format is KG-n, where n is a guide type. Max tightening torque 30Nm.
