Stark releases new-generation Hilma.NC vice

The Hilma.NC machine vice, successful on the market for many years, has undergone a complete revision of the product series by Stark Spannsystem GmbH. The Roemheld Group company has made these modular and versatile vices customisable and thus adaptable to numerous requirements.

Hilma.NC vices primarily find use on vertical machining centres. Depending on the machining strategy and existing automation, operators can initiate the clamping force with the Hilma.NC manually using a hand crank and hydraulic power transmission or – with the Hilma.NCH – purely hydraulically using a unit. This variant is primarily for partially automated processes and enables short clamping and release times, as well as improved ergonomics.

The modular structure makes the Hilma.NC a real all-rounder among clamping elements. It means the vices are suitable for workpieces of different dimensions. There are three sizes to choose from when it comes to jaw width: 100, 125 and 160 mm. Standard lengths are available for each version, achieving a maximum base length of between 380 and 1200 mm. Regardless of the modular system, individual desired lengths up to 1200 mm are also available for order.

The selection of clamping jaws for different tasks is already very extensive in the standard range. No matter whether raw or finished parts, square or round shapes or small to large workpieces – all machinists will find what they are looking for with Stark’s clamping jaws. If choosing magnetic quick-change jaws, users can even change the jaws without tools within a few seconds. Upon request, Stark also produces customer-specific clamping jaws.
