The Chick One-Lok vices for CNC machine tools represent an evolution in workholding technology in terms of speed, productivity, flexibility, and accuracy.
The Chick One-Lok has been developed from scratch to meet the speed, precision, and flexibility demanded by modern CNC machining operations. The patented “QwikSlide” allows the moveable jaw to be unlocked to slide forward and back in seconds, allowing rapid set-ups. The “Squeeze Clamping” configuration applies an equal and opposite internal force to the fixed jaw as the moving jaw closes, providing zero jaw lift, virtually deflection-free component clamping, and up to 4.5 tonnes of holding force.
The Chick One-Lok helped raise productivity at contract machinist Dorman Engineering. Owner Roland Dorman said:
“The Chick One-Loks from 1st MTA are ideal accessories for a machining centre. They provide peace of mind that the workpiece is secure, whilst increasing the accuracy and repeatability of machined parts as well as boosting productivity.”
