• Clamping workpieces that extend largely beyond the width of the jaws.
• Clamping tall workpieces with insufficient contact depth or without additional fixturing.

• Clamping workpieces without locking the fingers to the specified minimum torque.
• Supporting workpieces via the fingertip steps without performing the initial dressing procedure.
