Adaptix™ Soft Jaw Benefits

The Adaptix™ Soft Jaw CNC milling fixture is an adjustable work-holding device used in the machining process to position and secure multiple configuration of parts. The fixture can withstand large cutting force and ensures the quick transition for parts produced on the machining center, maintaining conformity and interchangeability. The fixture is designed with multiple adjustable fingers the are positioned and locked in place providing a rigid work-hold.

The unique "finger tip" design further builds on the flexibility and opens up a world of customization never seen before.  You can customize your Adaptix™ Soft Jaw for your needs with different tip materials, step profiles, lengths and unique tip edges.  Not only are the tips replaceable, but the whole system was designed to be field repairable in case a single finger gets damaged.

Adaptix™ Soft Jaw will work on various vise brands and the unique housings insure a tightly coupled system. 


Benefits

  • Create a "soft jaw" in less than 60 seconds with the adaptable fingers
  • Eliminates the need to design, manufacture a soft jaw
  • Quick changeover time at the machine from part to part
  • Eliminates the need to store soft jaws freeing up space in your plant
  • Exchangeable finger tips allow for different materials to be gripped with tip options including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and nylon
  • Other tip options include different step heights (3mm, 6mm, 10mm), two different lengths, and multiple tip shapes (Flat, Round, Hexagonal, Serrated)
  • We will be supporting common vise brands including Kurt and Schunk to start and will be adding other brands as soon as possible
  • The entire Adaptix™ Soft Jaw is field repairable so you can replace any finger, housing or tip
  • Adaptix™ Soft Jaw was designed and tested to hold up in an environment with constant fluid and chips present
