Whether you are new to automation or a seasoned pro, there are many factors that you are likely to consider when choosing a new product for automating your processes.

With its lean automation program and the Plug & Work portfolio for cobots, SCHUNK already offers cost effective solutions for component handling. Now the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology expands its offering for stationary workpiece clamping by launching a low maintenance vise that makes it easy to transition into the world of automation.

Low maintenance and precise
The pneumatically actuated clamping force block SCHUNK TANDEM PGS3-LH 100 can be directly mounted via the integrated flange on the machine tables, dividing heads or SCHUNK VERO-S NSL3 150 clamping stations of machining centers. Its compact and square design ensures optimum accessibility and enables a considerable stroke of 6mm per jaw.

With a clamping force of 4,500N and a repeat accuracy of 0.02mm, the low-maintenance SCHUNK TANDEM PGS3 is excellently suitable for basic applications in the field of aluminum and plastics machining. Special quality features include a chip-repelling design, the surface-treated components in the power flux, and the long base jaw guidance avoids a lifting up of the chuck jaws. The vise can be equipped with all standard top jaws with tongue and groove (KTR, KTR-H) from SCHUNK’s extensive chuck jaw program. The vise can be immediately incorporated into any machine tool: it has lateral air connections and built-in keyways.
