alonGrip™ Vise Jaw Systems
Mitee-Bite Products introduces a new and innovative product that will increase the functionality of your standard 4, 6, and 8 inch (100mm, 150mm and 200mm) vises. TalonGrip™ is a simple bolt on system that will allow you to perform aggressive machining operations while clamping on as little as .060 (1.5mm) of an inch. Ideal for small lot sizes, difficult applications or proto-type work when building a fixture would not be beneficial. TalonGrips™ are also available individually for fixturing with Pitbull® and Dyna-Force® Clamps or for soft jaw applications.
Materials that can be clamped with the jaws include any material that has a Rockwell “C” hardness of 40 or softer. Aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, composites, plastics, mild and carbon steels, high nickel materials, inconel, titanium, stainless steels, tool steels have all been gripped and machined successfully with the TalonGrip™ Systems Jaws. Brittle materials like some plastics, ceramics and composites may develop cracks and chipping from the grips. You will have to determine for yourself if the Jaws and Grips will work in those types of materials.
Torque for a typical 6″ vise is approx. 30 ft/lbs when using 2 grippers per jaw. Note: if using our large 8” jaws (p/n 32088) in vise torque to 40-45 ft/lbs. Be certain the grips penetrate the material at least .010″-.015″. More penetration is desired for softer materials such as brass, aluminum & mild steel. Jaws are not heat-treated to allow for custom modifications, grips are made from S7.
All TalonGrip™ mounting holes in our Jaws are threaded M5. For more versatility, all Jaw Sets are tapped with 2 additional holes to accept our M4 Pitbull® Clamps (M6 for 32088). This is an effective solution when downforce or additional holding force is necessary. Please contact Mitee-Bite Products with any questions.
