The KZS is a centric vice, which can be clamped hydraulically or pneumatically depending on the model, and is mostly used in a machining center. It is used for stationary, centric clamping of round or angular raw workpieces, which are then usually machined. It is mainly loaded system in the machining center automatically by a robot or gripper. It prevails over comparable products by the combination of a high clamping force, large jaw stroke and low interference contour.
Two interfaces are available for the jaw connection: the proven tongue and groove for a fast jaw change always with the same position, or with 1.5 x 60° serration for flexibility. The vices of the KZS series can be optionally configured with integrated, inductive stroke sensors. They are used for clamping control and enable optimum process monitoring for the highest process reliability.
The connections are geometrically the same as for Schunk clamping force blocks.
