Clamping small components or large-volume workpieces with precision is simple and quick with the range of machine vices as well as clamping jaws and inserts.

Quality clamping and machine vise range

Prevent tool breakage and machine downtime with the right HILMA machine vice, clamping jaws or arch clamps.

  • For mechanical applications try the DS, Duo, MSH, MC and SCS varieties
  • For mechanical-hydraulic we offer EL, NC, KNC, TS, DF, VL
  • For hydraulic only we have NC, MC, ZH, HSF

This series offers high-precision reproducibility of clamping forces to guarantee maximum possible repetitive accuracy of the clamping process with better clamping quality.

Arch Clamps for flat clamping edge

Double acting clamping force 30 to 450 kN, with mechanical lock and option for position monitoring at the side. Extremely sturdy and process-safe, easy to unclamp even after the hardest use. High sliding properties and corrosion resistant with a special coating process. Download the Arch Clamp Spec Sheet.

Where to use a HILMA machine vise

Every HILMA machine vice is great for the range of vertical, horizontal, 5-axis and mill turn machine clamping operations. A range of high-precision, powerful vises come in sizes and configurations to suit every possible application.

Two designs offer the right fit for tool making, mould making, construction of jigs and fixtures and production.

An optional angle drive can be retrofitted to facilitate operation, as in case of longitudinal clamping on the machine table.

Look at the popular MCP series

These three different vices are designed for 5 axis and production work with position flexible clamping. 

  • MCP traditional with one fixed jaw and one moving. 
  • MCP balance where the jaws float to grip the workpiece wherever it is rather than where the vice is
  • MCP concentric incorporates precision self-centering mechanism with two moving jaws for clamping at the exact center of the rotary table.

Clamping jaws and inserts to match

HILMA clamping jaws and inserts with grip help increase the retention force for NC machine vices with clamping force display, clamping bars with inserts, grip inserts for clamping bars, HM coated inserts for fixed jaw and slide, grip inserts for fixed jaw and slide, or HM coated.

Using clamping jaws or jaw inserts with coating or grip serrated, the retention forces for safe clamping of workpieces can be considerably increased. Only machine vices with clamping force display allow the controlled use of these clamping jaws/inserts.
