Self-Centering Vises

Self-centering vises are commonly used in machine shops and in CNC machining centers as an improved workholding holding method. Self-centering vises are designed with movable jaws that allows the centerline of the jaws to be set. Self-centering vises are particularly important for CNC machines that have multiple jaws mounted on the same machining center, and require the centerlines of all vises to match.

Self-Centering Vise Manufacturers

  • Kurt Workholding is the manufacturer of official Kurt vises, which have grown to become a standard for reliability and precision in quality workholding solutions. Kurt features two self-centering vises that make use of the AngLock jaw design that have zero lift. All Kurt vises and self-centering vises are backed by Kurt’s Iron Clad lifetime warranty.

A key feature that is required in modern self-centering vises is the ability of the vise to fit within modern 5 axis CNC machines. Modern CNC machines can be smaller and more tightly enclosed than older ones, and it’s important to find a self-centering vise that fits within the available space.
