Jergens will demonstrate its 5CV 130mm self-centering vise at this year’s FITMA show in Mexico City, Mexico, June 20th-22nd. The vise features clamping forces up to 3,600 lbs. and offers important advantages for five-axis machining applications. Among those are the reduction of ‘jaw lift’ that can occur due to flex that allows the workpiece to raise up during the clamping process. To combat this errant force, the vise jaws have been engineered with a pull-down design to ensure clamping and minimize lift.
The new KISSsoft release 2023 comes with numerous novelties. Among others, Gear Mesh Frequencies (GMF) can now be calculated for cylindrical and bevel gears. GMF results are visualized in two different diagrams, i.e. GMF versus rotational frequency of the reference gear, and GMF versus amplitude.
