Adaptix™ Soft Jaw is our new range of products for the future of CNC workholding

This revolutionary solution reinvents the soft jaw process. Adaptix™ Soft Jaw has been designed to be as robust as a standard aluminum soft jaw with regards to high clamping forces, repeatability and toughness, but ultimately more flexible. The fingers adapt to your unique part shape giving you ultimate flexibility saving time, money and simplifying your process overall.


Reduced part marring with a variety of unique tips.

  • Round tips contour to angles with no sharp points. This results in less marring as the tips are more adaptable and flexible.
  • Flat tips for normal vise or square parts if they have a step in it. Flat tips offer more contact and less marring.
  • Beveled and Spike tips grab a small amount of the surface and offer high hold with little purchase.

Superior grip strength.

  • Concentrated points of contact provide better grip strength
  • More points of contact
  • You can grip the full profile of the part



Adaptix™ Soft Jaw has dramatically reduced the steps involved and forever changed the way parts are held and gripped in the CNC workholding industry.

Norgren Workholding is challenging traditional thinking about workholding solutions for CNC machining customers; actively exploring new ways to tackle some of the key operational efficiency issues the industry faces every day.

With 159 years’ experience manufacturing 128 million parts per year using over 160 Milling machines, we challenge traditional thinking about Workholding solutions and offer ways to reduce set up and change overtimes, and eliminate costs and time spent designing, creating and storing vise/soft jaws.

The Adaptix™ Soft Jaw solves several machining problems with just one part - it can grip nearly any part with comparable repeatability and clamping force as single-application soft jaws. This singular improvement to the CNC machining workflow can have a huge impact on several pain points in the industry.
