The perfect workholding system for the WIDEST range of applications for VERTICAL or HORIZONTAL machining

MODULAR

Wide range of spare jaws - use for clamping 1-12 workpieces ANYTHING is possible with Gerardi’s standard jaws.

NO WEAR

Made 100% from high quality alloyed steel, case hardened to HRc60 ±2 for maximum rigidity, high performance and no wear. 5 YEARS WARRANTY on vices and all components.

COMB CLAMP SYSTEM WITH PULL DOWN ACTION

High clamping accuracy, power and pull down action with Gerardi COMB CLAMPING action.

HIGHEST ACCURACY +/-0.02mm

Every sliding and working surface is ground. Centesimal tolerances are guaranteed by checking cycles with CNC measuring machine. The perfect alignment with the machine axis is given by keyways

VERTICAL OR HORIZONTAL SET UP

Vices can be vertically assembled and linked to each other or clamped to specific workholding structures.

HIGH & CONSISTENT CLAMPING FORCES

20-30kN clamping forces achieved with a simple T wrench.

ART.609 MODULAR STEP JAW

Can be used as a STEP JAW (supplied as standard) or SMOOTH JAW, SERRATED, PARALLEL or PRISMATIC JAW

IDEAL FOR 4th AXIS COMPACT CORE

Ideal for turning a vertical machining centre into a full production machine. The small core size of the tower makes it ideal for even the smallest rotary table

H7 CENTRING HOLE ON TOWER

For easier mounting on a vertical machining centre

Multiflex Features and Benefits

Multiflex is suitable for almost any sized part from ultra-small to large plates. It can be adapted to small or large batch machining.

Huge clamping forces, jaws that can be added or removed in seconds, hundreds of accessories, quick and easy alignment due to cross keyways and perfect height matching...just some of the benefits Multiflex can bring to you.

Multiflex Clamping Forces 

Multiflex vices offer extremely high clamping forces with simple mechanical clamping.

To ensure consistent repeatability it is recommended to use a digital torque wrench for tightening the jaws.
