In response to high demand, SCHUNK has increased its product line of power-amplified 5-axis vises which are now equipped with an adjustable center: The maintenance-free SCHUNK KONTEC KSX-C is now available in four base body lengths (330 mm, 430 mm, 500 mm, and 630 mm) and two heights (174 mm, and 125 mm). The high-quality 5-axis vises have two jaws, which can be precisely moved by a laser-etched ruler. The clamping forces can be adjusted without tools between 4 kN and 40 kN, and are measured directly on the workpiece. The vise also provides plenty of power for a safe hold even in cases with mini-mal clamping surfaces. Workpieces are clamped within seconds with the help of 160° quick clamping in a vibration resistant manner and at a high repeat accuracy. Due to clamping by tension, the bending load at the base body is minimized. Moreover, the jaw guidance sys-tem and the arrangement of the clamping mechanism provide for a very rigid and dimen-sionally stable set-up, and therefore creates the ideal conditions for precise machining of the second side.

Fully encapsulated

The drive and the adjustment mechanism of the 5-axis vise are fully encapsulated, and therefore protected against the ingress of chips, dirt, and coolant. The easy-to-clean design of the vise avoids the accumulation of chips. Therefore, the KONTEC KSX-C can be seamless-ly integrated into the modular system for highly efficient workpiece clamping from SCHUNK. The clamping pins of the SCHUNK VERO-S quick-change pallet system can be used for direct mounting of the base body without requiring an adapter plate. Combined with the quick-change pallet system, the vise can be exchanged on the machine table within seconds and at maximum repeat accuracy. It can be equipped with standard, aluminum or special 5-axis top jaws, pendulum plates, or with many other standard jaws from the world’s largest range of standard chuck jaws from SCHUNK.

The savings keep coming when you use a variable frequency drive (VFD) with synchronous bypass and transfer capabilities. It can help reduce up-front capital costs and long-term energy and maintenance costs in various motor-control applications. And along with the cost savings, the VFD can help you increase efficiency and achieve more flexible process control.

A VFD with synchronous capabilities allows you to operate one motor continuously with variable speed control or to start and synchronize multiple motors. It also gives you the ability to soft start large motors.

Motor Feature


As a leading manufacturer of drive technology, we also supply mechanical variable-speed gearmotors. For both series, VARIBLOC®and VARIMOT®, you can easily infinitely adjust the speed mechanically using a handwheel or remote control.

Speeds of up to 45 kW can be easily adjusted mechanically

Mechanical variable-speed gearmotors are simple yet robust drive components that represent an inexpensive alternative in many materials handling and process engineering applications. This is because you control the speed infinitely variably yourself: mechanically using a handwheel or via remote control. The process does not involve any costly control cabinets or frequency inverters at all.
