Vises for a range of mounting options using sine keys

It has been announced that mounting newer Kurt vise models is easier, faster and more precise. Through the use of Sine Keys, vise alignment and lockdown is simplified. Kurt Sine keys are positioning devices that insert and lock quickly and accurately into pre-drilled dowel holes in the base of every newer model Kurt vise.

The product provides the fast mounting of vises onto t-slots, machine tables, grid plates with pre-machines hole patterns, sub-plates, fixture plates and tombstones.

Kurt Sine Keys aim to be an improvement over traditional bolt on keys used to locate vises on mills and machine T-slot beds. Bolt on keys require mounting and unmounting using a hex wrench and SHCS screws which are tedious and slow.

By comparison using Kurt Sine Keys, no screws or wrenches are needed. They insert smoothly into pre-drilled dowel holes in the base of the vise. And the Sine Key O-ring locks them into position accurately. For unmounting, they release just as quickly.

The pre-drilled dowel hole pattern in the Kurt vises, also eliminates the need for a machinist to drill their own hole patterns for mounting purposes, and risking potential damage to the vise and voiding a warranty.

All new Kurt vise models incorporating the Kurt Sine Key Dowel hole feature include: DX4 and six series, 3400, 3600 and 3800 series, HD690 series, XL6 series, HDL four and six series and HDM6 vise series.
