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
Clamp modules (KCS-single directional)
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.
KCS-DX modules recomended maximum clamp tightening moment is 70Nm. Maximim force is 30KN.
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).
There are also "A" models that are optimized specially for robotic loading of workpieces, for KCS-DR1A.
