Stamp Material



Material ready for vice



Secure clamping on 3mm.




  • Minimum clamping depth of work pieces 2 or 3 mm
  • Gives enormous material savings
  • Highest holding power at minimum clamping force by positive lock technology
  • Gives maximum clamping security and strength with minimum material deformation
  • High-tech holding tooth design
  • Gives highest repeat accuracy smaller than 0, 01 mm
  • Used with Makro•Grip vices - giving best accessibility to work piece
  • Allows application of short tools -reduced vibrations and longer life to produce best finish
  • No pre-op work on material is needed, because stamping/indentation is done directly onto saw cut and scaled surface of the raw material
  • Highest reduction of set-up time
