Zero Point Clamping


Jergens, Inc., one of the world’s largest manufacturers of standard tooling components, vises, and other workholding equipment, announces the addition of a Zero Point Clamping System to its already broad line of Quick Change fixturing solutions. The Jergens Zero Point System (ZPS) combines ease of alignment, high-accuracy positioning, and high clamping forces with the ease of hydraulic or pneumatic actuation. Jergens will offer individual modules, complete systems and plates, as well as design and technical assistance. Jergens’ Zero Point System reduces complicated machine setup procedures into a single step. Unlocking and removing the clamping device is made simpler; the system eliminates the need to search for the bore, minimizing the risk of damage to high-precision zero-point bores and nipples. The Jergens ZPS is compact in size but still provides excellent holding and pull-in forces. The balls are 784% larger than those used in competitive locking systems. The balls roll freely in the form-fitting ball channel, which allows the balls to easily reposition themselves, allowing heavy fixtures to self-align easily. All components are made of stainless steel. The Jergens ZPS reduces setup times while increasing setup accuracy and repeatability. The new system adds to their existing Ball Lock Fixturing System, Vises, Hydraulic Clamping Products, and Jergens’ own broad line of tooling and fixturing components and allows Jergens to offer a complete line of workholding solutions for all fixturing needs.
