Centering Vises

High Precision
Extreme Power

Extremely strong with just 3 mm Clamping Depth


PIRANHA CLAMP Centering Vises are a highly sophisticated and mature clamping system for 5-axis and other machining centers, characterized particularly by its extreme clamping force (the spindle can withstand pressures well above 1300 Nm²) and, as you would expect from a Swiss manufacturer, the class leading precision. Just 3 mm clamping depth, so raw material waste is kept to a minimum, and extremely low overall height are further decisive performance advantages.

The main body is hardened and grinded on all sides +/-0.02 mm. The spindle is thermally treated. The gliding pillars are hardened, grinded and coated. The open construction ensures easy chip evacuation. The patented quick-change system (Gepard Range) leaves nothing to be desired in terms of changeover times: within a few seconds, a wide range of different clamping jaws can be changed. And the very low constructed PIRANHA CLAMP Zero-Point Clamping Plates provide the optimum interface to the machine for each centering vise and allow a repetition accuracy of 0.01 mm.

IBT Thiermann is the exclusive distributor for the Swiss manufacturer PIRANHA CLAMP in Germany.
