ST8 500N Vice Grip Single Acting (pair)

This is a single sided vice grip for thin samples. Rubber coated faces are fitted as standard. The gripping force is applied by a threaded rod which is cross drilled to allow the use of a bar to increase the clamping force. Because of the single sided action the machine connection is centred on the fixed face. This allows for the best alignment of the load axis for thin samples. The 5mm opening is to allow for soft samples which compress on clamping. If thick rigid samples are used it should be appreciated that the load axis of the sample and machine will not be in line.

For thick samples where centring is important use ST9.

An alternative pyramid cut face is available for the moving side of the vice. This is hardened to 60HRC. This jaw face is not interchangeable by the customer, it must be ordered with the grip and will be fitted at the factory.
