Tegara Milling Vise is built for taking punishment. Blast it with coolant. Fill it with chips. Crank it all the way down and get the most out of the 8,000 Lbs clamping force. This battle-tested vise can stand up to the abuse of even in the most demanding machine shops. We use 80,000 PSI stress relieved ductile cast iron body (Material FCD60) to lay the foundation. Combined with 40+ years of manufacturing know-how and real-world application feedback, each vise body has gone through rigorous grinding process on the CNC grinder with micron accuracy. Critical component such as lead screw are also precision turned to achieve smooth but rigid movement.
A gang of vise body gone through time consuming grinding process with micron accuracy on a CNC grinder
Each vise body will be put under the microscope to filter out unsatisfying cast iron bodies before assembling
Semi-hardened bright finished lead screws with precision turned threads to give them a solid & smooth feel when turning the vise handle
Unique leadscrew design provides ability to clamp either same sized parts or dissimilar sized parts, even if the difference between the two parts is as big as 3.54", while allowing 6 different jaw clamping configurations. Unique clamping force equalization mechanism allows same amount of clamping force applied evenly to different sized part when jaws starts tightening.
Unlike other less expensive import vises, 400DS offers advanced improvements to prevent jaw lifting by using eccentric pin locking mechanism no matter if the vise is lay flat in normal fashion, on the side, or vertically upright in a tower vise configuration.
- Up to 6000 Lbs of clamping force- Clamping repeatability within +/- 0.0002"- Fixed Jaw perpendicular to bed within 0.0005"- Fixed jaw parallel to vise's keyway within +/- 0.0005"- Vise Jaw Plate thread and spacing is compatible with other American made vise on the market
- Vise body made from 80,000 PSI stress relieved ductile cast iron- Vise bed is hardened to 45 HRc and Jaw Plates flame hardened to 54 HRc- Footprint and distance from the keyway to stationary jaws meet the industry standard- Bed height tolerance of +/- 0.0005"- Vises' bed parallel to base within 0.0005"- Bed height matched to 3.25" +/- 0.0005" (matched bed height on pair orders)
By removing the middle fixed jaw, 400DS can be converted into a 9.25" capacity single station vise with the included conversion hardware kits. In this single station configuration, unlike other competitor's vise, 400DS's rear jaw close in towards the operator and able to close completely. Another hidden advantage with front jaw being fixed is that it allows CNC machine operator to program in Y axis positive direction.
Precision ground flat sides allow the vise to be mounted on each side or in high density mounting system
Chip guard pre-installed on each vise and we stock replacement chip guard
